overcookedbacon;3010375 said:Man, maybe it's just me but I think "Black Cab" by Jens Lekman might just be the greatest song ever written. Then again, I use the expression "greatest song ever written" so often that it's lost all meaning. Still, a damn good song from an awesome musician. Also, stop-motion snowballs... So there's that.Oh indie pop, I've been so caught up with lo-fi noise rock and late 70s post-punk that I completely forgot how much fun you were.EDIT!I'm also considering adding Kaki King's debut album Everybody Loves You to the essentials list. Not terribly sure it really fits in though. Let me know what all you people think.
Alright_Computer;3024369 said:I would also like to throw out a mention to this album. I'm only a few tracks into it now, but it's fantastic.
Alright_Computer;3024581 said:??It's an album with a nice "indie" sound and maybe a tinge of shoegaze influence, if you were wondering. I'd give it a listen.
neckermanncj;3024591 said:i'll consider it, i have too much music to listen to as it is.i saw they was tagged as post rock too, so that got my attention :cool:
Alright_Computer;3024643 said:Yeah, but I wouldn't call them post-rock beyond a tinge here or there. I would call them awesome, however.
afterstasis;3024646 said:yeah, EDM straddled the lines between indie, post-rock, and slowcore pretty steadily.
neckermanncj;3024591 said:EDIT:AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!! NEW of Montreal album coming out next year!!! http://www.undertheradarmag.com/interviews/of_montreal_in_the_studioKevin Barnes seriously doesn't want to stop, he puts out an album a year, which is awesome!
neckermanncj;3024656 said:maybe i'll check em.
Alright_Computer;3024745 said:Also, I hadn't heard about the new of Montreal album, cool.
neckermanncj;3024758 said:are you big on of Montreal, b/c if you're not i could help you with that he says it is going to be a "funkier" album, and he said that he has been listening to a lot of Parliament recentely
Alright_Computer;3024814 said:I'm not a huge fan of them, but that might just be because I haven't heard much from them. I haven't even heard a full album from them, but I'm willing to change that Also, I'm interested to see how that would work out. The songs I've heard from their last album were kind of funky, and that worked out pretty well, so hopefully it'll be the same on this release.
overcookedbacon;3025650 said:Man, the remastered version of The Stone Roses that was just recently released is great. Sounds much sharper. Totally worth the purchase if you enjoy that album.
neckermanncj;3025664 said:can you really tell the difference, because if so i might DL it.also OCB, this was pretty kool http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgTJtdn6VjM
overcookedbacon;3025683 said:You really can, it's a huge improvement.Also, the video for "Over It" is sweet.
neckermanncj;3025737 said:yeah i discovered it today, that is cool that they skateboard/ride bikes too
neckermanncj;3025168 said:everyone will tell you that "Hissing Fauna.... Are You The Destroyer?" is their best, which it might be, but go and listen to "Satanic Panic In The Attic" & "The Sundlandic Twins" both are excellent mixes of their lo-fi Elephant 6 days and their poppy electronic stuff they are doing now, although Satanic and Sundlandic are considered more psychedelic and electronicalso check out "The Gay Parade" & "Coquelicot Asleep in the Poppies: A Variety of Whimsical Verse"they have 9 studio albums, a couple pretty good compilations that have mostly non-album tracks, and a fantastic EP called "Icons, Abstract Thee" just DL their discog if i were you, and then listen to those 2 first i've also seen them twice, once on their Hissing Fauna tour and earlier this year in june, mostly stuff from Skeletal Lamping, and to be honest i could see why that album would turn you off if you weren't a fan of the band before listening to it.

CommonCriminal;3029668 said:They only have two albums, and one of them sucks. That should narrow down your choices.
overcookedbacon;3030526 said:The Stone Roses - The Stone RosesDinosaur Jr - You're Living All Over Me
Alright_Computer;3030665 said:Yeah, like stasis, I like/love every Dinosaur Jr. album, in fact, I did a marathon of every album they released around the time when Farm was released, so not too long ago. I think all of their albums are solid, though I do have to say Bug, You're Living All Over Me, Beyond and Farm are my favorites. I don't know which album I'd choose at gunpoint, and hopefully I won't ever find out.
