An unexpected find, via eMUSIC....
OOBERMAN hail from Lerpwl (Welsh for "Liverpool"?) and do the "orchestral/chamber-pop with boy/girl vocals" thing. Apparently, they've already broken up (2003) and regrouped (2006) once; they don't perform their songs live; and pretty much everybody involved has side-projects up the wazoo/wingwang. Not sure that bodes well for their future, but here are some songs from their past....
