Dear Chicago Reader Letters and Monica Kendrick:

In response to our critique in Spot Check [January 22]: we deserved it. You are right. Our music is rooted firmly in the "cuddly indie squeamish" movement. We have for years tried to escape this style but have somehow circled back in a mediocre spiral. I remember trying to convince the world of our thornier nature only to be taunted into hysterical sobbing by the Nick Cave-ish bores that watched. I have attempted strange sex and awkward drugs to no avail. Still, lord help me--cuddly.
