I’ve just been getting into these guys. I have some random songs here and there. Some of you have been speaking highly of their latest “Push Barman to Open Old Wounds.” Which would you say is/are their best album(s) for a beginner crash course?
The album you mention is the collection of their previous LPs, which seems like a logical place to start. That's the one I'd recommend you get. I'm sure Dan will give you a more thorough analysisantiditz said:I’ve just been getting into these guys. I have some random songs here and there.

I'll look into it!By the way ... they're bringing their tour to NYC in early March. YOU SHOULD GO if you can still get tickets.
I keep meaning to, but then I can't find an artist I want, so I push it off. Maybe my new Belle & Sebastian fixation would be a good place to start.bdb said:antiditz, do you ever sign up for eMusic? AFAIK, all of B&S's albums are on there. They also have the Lucksmiths, who sound similar (to me).
Looks like I have a project for the weekend!bdb said:You could get a ton B&S it there, and you could have saved some money on the Minus The Bear or Dogs Die CDs. Make sure to find how to get the 125 free songs your first month; PM me if you can't find it.
So many artists to choose from; just picking the best of last month's loot:
Broken Social Scene
Dogs Die In Hot Cars
Echo and the Bunnymen
Matt Pond PA
Minus The Bear
The Hold Steady
The Shipping News
The Spinto Band
Yo La Tengo
I've given it a few listens now and don't like it as much as "Catastrophe Waitress". Still a good album, but I'm not into this new poppy style of theirs, maybe it'll grow on me though...detonation said:
The Life Pursuit is quite a good album as well, though.
