The Deadly Syndrome

I'm having an incredibly difficult time trying to describe the Deadly Syndrome. I mean, this could be deadly - I could sit at my computer for hours instead of packing simply trying to make complete sentences and, in my failure, neither eat or sleep. SO deadly.

Hailing from L.A., the Deadly Syndrome seem to have that typically Californian attitude about their music that's both blazing with energy and incredibly blasé (maybe it's just a stereotype, but it made for a good pun - and, honestly, I'll say just about anything if it makes a good pun).
Some evidence (from their myspace):
Influences: Silence, obviously. Otherwise what would we have to fill with our lovely tunes? Well, your hearts and minds, but you get the idea. Next up we have Ebola - not only for being scary as shit, but for showing us the true meaning of deadly. Moving on, here at the DS we're big believers in Chaos Theory, some of our lesser known influences are an acorn falling from an oak tree in Ireland, circa 1312,...[it goes on like this for a good bit]
So the story goes: I really like their song "Eucalyptus." I also really like their song "Winter in You." The two songs sound like they could have been written by two different bands with no connection whatsoever; the same goes with their other songs I've heard. So here comes the comparison: sometimes they sound just teeny-tiny little bit like Modest Mouse. Their debut album, The Ortolan, will be released on September 11. To which I say: bitches ain't shit.

    This band is indescribable. They're my second favorite, second ONLY to Modest Mouse. I'm listening to them now, actually. Ha. I could ramble all day about how great The DS is.
