    Band Name Game II

      Cool, glad to hear they are getting some recognition. They did a spot on Letterman last year, I guess their TV debut, pretty nice stuff, though I think the previous record Haw is really their masterpiece (I love their previous incarnation as The Court and Spark too, their Bless You record is...

      Yea, those are good too, though of course more recent. Another quick 5 big favorites from the early 2000s in kind of the same style ...   Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It In People Manitoba - Up In Flames (had to change name to Caribou later) Electrelane - The Power Out Wrens -...

    Band Name Game II

    Great band. Haw is one of those amazing records that you hope people will continue to discover into the future, though I'm not sure good music has that kind of longevity any more. Maybe just too much music now. Be a shame if it's only known for that short moment, and then gone. The also very...

    Three desert island albums

      Yea, that was a great time in the early 2000s. Those first couple Shins records are very good. Listening right now to the incredible Augie March debut, Sunset Studies from about the same time. Definitely worth tracking down for a listen, if not familiar. Has a bit of the droney sound I love...

    Need albums similar to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

    Still a great record, and still probably better overall than Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, but that's just me, Quicksand is the one I listen to over and over, through the years.   Some Nina Nastasia The Blackened Air playing now, as it does so often around my place, one of my very favorites, she is...

    Three desert island albums

    What a nice record, your other picks are too, but that one from Pinback doesn't get enough love.   Right now, this very minute, I'll go with these ...   Mercury Rev [1998] Deserter's Songs Califone [2003] Quicksand/Cradlesnakes Nina Nastasia [2002] The Blackened Air

    Yea, it's kinda surprising the new direction they take with each new record. Really a fun band to follow along with. They put out an EP a couple years ago called Undersea, and it was really different from the previous Burst Apart, which was also much different from the great debut that I still...

    Isn't that a great record? Very powerful. Got the latest from Brian Jonestown Massacre on now ...

      Curious which songs and where you see (or hear) clipping on this? They definitely gave the music a little headroom and didn't push the peaks to the max, which is a refreshing change of pace in this modern era.

    THE best female vocals? (your favorite female singers)

    New record is incredible, Wine Dark Sea, don't miss it. She really brings it all together on this one, she's got the band, she's got the songs, she's got the lyrics, and knows how to sing it.

    Have you ever clicked on the View all photos by DLeeWebb in this thread link? Pretty nice collection you got on display there.   Been listening a lot to the new one I mentioned upthread a ways by Black Dirt Oak, Wawayanda Patent. Really nice psychedelic folk stuff.  ...

    Thanks, I'll give those a listen. I don't know that Black Dirt Oak has gotten a CD release yet, may be worth waiting for, but I just did the paypal download ... http://mie.limitedrun.com/products/521748-black-dirt-oak-wawayanda-patent ... probably available other places too.   Edit: Oh, I see...

    Sounds a little like that Three Mile Pilot odds and ends, An Old Town We Once Knew that I think you like. Has that relaxed and rambling sound, though the music is a bit different, maybe a little more bluesy, not many vocals, but some. Sounds a bit like Can at times. Kind of like that Tracker...

    But it's only February! What are some of your other favorites? I haven't heard Benji yet, but big Kozelek fan, so any year he has some new music out it is likely to be near the top of my list. Well, that might not be true since last one I bought was April, but it was one of the best.   Can't...

          I'm a big fan of Richard Davies, have been since the '94 Cardinal record with Eric Matthews, and his three solo records, especially the excellent first two, There's Never Been A Crowd Like This and Telegraph, but for some reason never felt a compulsion to check out what he did with the...

    One that will probably stay with you for a long time. They captured some magic there. I've mentioned it a couple times here, but it never goes out of style :)   http://www.head-fi.org/t/440529/your-5-essential-albums/15#post_5942448

    Best albums of 2013! A not so different take on this!

        You probably know already, but http://www.metacritic.com/feature/critics-pick-top-ten-albums-of-2013 does much the same thing, except from more sources, but with similar results to yours. My take's a little different, but I also didn't hear that much new stuff this year ...   Been loving...

    Hiss Golden Messenger

      Well, we already talked about it at the other place, but yea, continues to impress. And I did pick up that Golden Gunn after you mentioned it before, and do like it, but haven't listened much yet.   But now the day is turning into a Bowie trip with Low. May be a long trip ....

    Hiss Golden Messenger

    Always loved the band Court & Spark, especially the very nice "Bless You", great record both musically and sonically, and I think it is still out there in vinyl. But just recently found out about the band Hiss Golden Messenger with M.C. Taylor and Scott Hirsch from Court & Spark, and man this...

    Band Name Game II

      And isn't "Moses" just about perfect, one of the best songs they've done? Just knocks me out each time, kinda knocks my ear drums out too with that bass towards the end on the left side :)     And then comes along the Bullfight song to ease the way into Payphone. Another really nice...

    Band Name Game II

    I actually love the new Califone! Really nice record, been listening to it a lot. Pretty good sounding, and a fun listen too with all those layers of sound, little noises move in and out of the scenes, almost go unnoticed at times, but still seem to play important roles in building the landscape...

    vinyl rip vs cd

      Sadly, that part is probably true.
