"The minute someone seriously suggested this name for the band, I’d have to show him the door. The name is not clever, loses it’s novelty factor quickly to where it just gets annoying, and doesn’t fit this band AT ALL. I was fully expecting a keyboard fronted band with some snotty vocalist. Instead what I was exposed to was a band that fits the “emo” mold these days with a touch of Death Cab For Cutie. Featuring lyrics such as, “I know you’ll find out I’m a geek with a lowercase g,” you’ll find out quickly they don’t have the cleverness of Ben Gibbard’s writing. In short, give it up guys. You failed at the music thing. Try croquet.

A Great Big Pile Of Leaves
Brooklyn, NY-based trio, A Great Big Pile of Leaves got their start in 2007 when guitarist/singer Peter Weiland and drummer Tyler Soucy took time from their prior projects to start writing material of their own. The first six songs came together as the self-released EP The Fiery Works, which the duo put out as a free download on their Web site. As word spread online, the band's fanbase grew along with Weiland and Soucy's
excitement to get back to recording.

Continuing with the formula of self-producing, The Fiery Works II followed shortly afterward and was also released as a free download. Within the next year, the digital releases were downloaded over 12,000 times and the group prepared for a live setting with the addition of Tucker Yaro on bass. After playing several shows and writing a batch of new songs over the next few months, the newfound trio prepared themselves to record a full-length record Have You Seen My Prefrontal Cortex?
