Does anyone know about this group? I don't know what to make of it. Any ideas from y'all?

Steely Dan was pretty much incapable of putting out a bad song. Phenomenal musicians.

I recommend that you check out their catalog ASAP.

They are one of those bands that get better with every listen.

As a bonus (after you have fully absorbed Steely Dan), explore "The Nightfly" by Donald Fagen.

Kamakiriad is good too.

AXS teevee had done one or two Steely Dan pieces, one where Fagen gets into detail about the sounds that were placed, and why. There is an incredible amount of "just below the surface" sound that makes a significant difference to the ear.
