Yo. disclaimer: I am addicted to this band. Seriously the past two days I haven't been able to put on anything else. BUT today a serious wave of depression hit me. They're so good. But so sad . Honestly out of all the bright eyes/ kind of like spitting sad songs this is 1000x worse. Music has never effected me like this.
I really don't know who would like this band. But I listened through the album and I'm in love. It's very sad music. Very slow music. Verrrrryy 90's which is awesome. Give em a try.
The criminally underrated "On Avery Island" of 96. It come so fucking close to In The Aero. It's got electronic noise breakdowns and interludes which are fucking incredible. The best distorted head-banging rock and the beautiful "A Baby For Pree- Where You'll Find Me Now" suite that has and will continue to make me cry. Fucking great album. Gardenhead is the shit.
This live show. is so fucking good. Best set and really gives you the fullest effect on how fun this band is. I'm telling you.. listen to it over and over. Ferris Wheel On Fire is such a good unreleased track and this life performance of it gives it full justice.
A Jeff Mangum solo acoustic performance at a place called jittery joes. If you watch vids of this show you can see everyone sitting down and it seems to be a really intimate show setting. After the famous hiatus I guess it had to be just friends for him to perform this in 2001. wowo
