A search on "Air" doesn't turn up the bands Air (FR) or Air (US), just albums and artist aliases. Likewise "X" misses X (AU) and (US), and "Jet" misses Jet (AU) and (UK).

Meanwhile, typing "Sun" gets the "too short/no results" message, instead of returning Sun (AU 1/2) and (US 1/2). Same deal with "Sky" not returning Sky (US 1/2) and (UK), and "FM" not returning FM (CA) and (UK). (I guess Air/X/Jet are saved from getting this message because they're also albums/artist aliases.)

I've got a fix in the system to handle those short string band names that are not being found with their country codes. It'll go up in the next batch of patches.

Right now I'm in a week long battle with queued album images (Amazon AWS doesn't like images being overwritten apparently). Once I have that working, I can push that update along with this search issue all up together.

I've noted the other case-sensitivity search issue. On my list to address.
