"Xylos is a co-ed, aurally adventurous five-piece orgy of pop from New York, their music characterized by four-part vocal harmonies, complex orchestration, and a large variety of instruments and electronics.  The music of Xylos has been compared to that of the Shins, Paul Simon, and Fleetwood Mac (though one suspects the latter is due partially to the gender breakdown of the band).  The band is Eric Zeiler, Nikki Lancy, Aaron Mendelsohn, Monika Heidemann, and Mike Greenfield.  Their debut EP, Bedrooms, was composed and performed primarily by Eric Zeiler and features guest vocals by Ira Wolf Tuton and Anand Wilder of the Brooklyn band Yeasayer." –
