Yeah, she does have a similar-sounding voice, or maybe it's her phrasing.  Cool song and sweet production as you pointed out.

 And someone's real voice, flaws and all....but real, whole, organic and wonderful. So refreshing.

Thought this was going to be "Black Boys on Mopeds." Would much rather be listening to "Black Boys on Mopeds".

He BillG, could you play "Black Boys on Mopeds" sometime?

It looks like their site has been disabled.  It is odd how often "soporific" comes up as a criticism for mellow or slower tunes; are there really that many people who only like songs which are faster than 200 BPM?
 
Yep, that drives me nuts too.
Fred, are you listening?  ; )

The link to the band's website comes up empty. I rather like this piece. Soporific is a term used in various comments and there is something to that description, but why not? A deep mood is established and the singing is fine. What's the problem?

Reminds me of the old times when I accidentally put the switch on '33' instead of '45' on my turntable, but it sounds better than then.

What is it tonight with RP, I have been hitting 'PSD' continually.  And this inane piece of sap just makes me want to......{#Crashcomp}  {#Frustrated}... screeeeeam!

It just seems to be on a very soppy cycle at the moment.....

I was wondering if these guys would fall into the shoegazer category. They sound too mellow for the AllMusic.com definition of shoegaze: "The sound of the music was overwhelmingly loud, with long, droning riffs, waves of distortion, and cascades of feedback. Vocals and melodies disappeared into the walls of guitars, creating a wash of sound where no instrument was distinguishable from the other."
Whatever it's called, I like it. For the record, this is not the strongest track on the disc.

 
I listen to a lot of bands who get tagged with that label, and this band is not in that category.  Keep in mind the phrase "gazing at one's shoes" predates idiotic music writers and just because idiot music writers start a category it does not mean everyone else is precluded from using that phrase.

I wonder how many band names they went through before settling on this one?
...Tresspassers Scott... no

...Tresspassers Craig...no

...Tresspassers Brett.. I don't think so
 
As mentioned somewhere below, the band's name is a reference to one of A.A. Milne's Winnie-The-Pooh stories.
