Helium is a great band from Boston that is fronted by a woman named Mary Timony. They originally started out as a "I am woman hear me roar" mystical angry femme band and have since moved on to more quiet, fantasy oriented stuff like Tolkien on a dreamy acid trip. Their stuff is the best. I love em. I love Mary Timony. I know that sounds stupid but she has a way with music. Get Dirt of Luck and start from there.
