Bodies of Water is a Los Angeles-based band led by husband-and-wife team David and Meredith Metcalf. In a review from last summer, Slant Magazine said, "Bodies of Water take their sweet time setting up their songs, building them in dense layers, bending and peeling those layers back, and then folding them onto each other."

The video for "Under the Pines" (embedded above) is simultaneously weird, funny, and creepy. It was directed by Andy Bruntel. The song has a big sound, part progressive rock, with a really smooth buildup.
