The San Francisco quartet's 2004 album Milk Man, a delightfully dense concept album based on artist Ken Kagami's banana-impaled cartoon character, earned raves for its chilly, Byzantine structures and enthralling, shuffling pulses . . . and, more astoundingly, it inspired a troupe of elementary school kids in North Haven, Maine, to stage an honest-to-God interpretive ballet of flailing limbs, white costumes, and flying orbs.
