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?

Yep, that drives me nuts too.

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.

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.

As mentioned somewhere below, the band's name is a reference to one of A.A. Milne's Winnie-The-Pooh stories.
