    Flaming Lips comments?

    flaming lips ='s that for a comment? i'm firmly in the "yoshimi..." camp; as great as "the soft bulletin" is, yoshimi strikes me as being a more adventurous, eclectic and emotional melange of electronica and pop. The instrumental tracks are a high point as well... - w

    male singer-songwriter suggestions?

    Two names come to mind, both (loosely) in the Nick Drake mould: Tom McRae and Ed Harcourt. Both are worth checking out, even Ed, despite his occasionally asinine behaviour at gigs (as once recounted by a female friend of mine).. - w

Then Liam & Noel...

    What Live concerts have you attended?

    *far* too many to count...the last one I attended was Mogwai's gig at the Phoenix last week: the band was their usual wall-of-sound selves, but played a bit too much from 'Young Team' and not enough from 'Rock Action'..and no Cody - w

    Looking for more shoegazing / dreampop

    The new Elbow album came out yesterday...lovely, lovely stuff. You might also want to check out The Lightning Seeds..they aren't around anymore, but a "Best Of" compilation should still be available. Brendan Benson and Stars are also worth checking out. - wasif

    Quote: Originally posted by Trounce Can't really compare it to anything I've ever heard - certainly not Doves, but to each his own. I am in love, literally, with the song 'Anthems for a Seventeen-Year-Old Girl.' Just uplifting and cathartic. Sounds like something out of a Sigur Ros...
