The Trolleyvox is an American
Indie popband from Philadelphia, PA. It was formed in 1996 by Andrew Chalfenand Beth Filla.
The band's style drew comparisons to
The New Pornographers[http://blogcritics.org/archives/2007/01/02/022719.php] , while a YouTubevideo for "Just You Wait" turned it into an anthem against George W. Bush[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdNb6nbOzZ8] .
After releasing two albums on the New Jersey power-pop label Groove Disques, The Trolleyvox moved to Philadelphia-based label Transit of Venus. Their 2006 release "The Trolleyvox Present The Karaoke Meltdowns" earned them substantial critical praise,
