Mae - "Embers and Envelopes"

I remember listening to Mae back during my "emo" phase in high school, which is kind of funny, because they aren't nearly as sad as some of the contemporaries they're lumped in with. Musically, I can see where they might draw comparisons to definitive emo bands like Jimmy Eat World, but Mae made pretty sunny indie pop during their tenure; a little like a lighter, janglier Stars. Here's the video for their single "Embers and Envelopes" off the 2003 record Destination: Beautiful.
