I'm also adding The Clientele's Strange Geometry
Saw them with Beach House one day while just walking down the street at a tiny space for $10. I've never listened to anything other than this album, but I love it and they were great live. Beach House still needed some work back then (2006 I believe).
There's a golf course behind my house and it was built over an Indian burial ground.. It's haunted I like to run it at night and listen to The Softest Voice - Animal Collective It adds to creepiness...
Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - Up From Below Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More Arcade Fire - The Suburbs Modest Mouse - No One's First, And You're Next Flying Lotus - Cosmo-Gramma
Oh yeah, and...
Paul Simon - Graceland
This might be a little better:
Dan Bern - Dan Bern Steve Burns - Songs For Dustmites Clem Snide - End Of Love Philistines Jr. - If A Band Plays in the Woods...? Snowglobe - Our Land Brains Residents - Duck Stab Chumbawamba - Un Brian Eno - Another Green World
Regarding the Steve Burns album, I remember the review HG wrote, the first in the "album a day" thread. I recall reading Steve Burns was a children's show host, but didn't remember anything else about the review. Having read most of the other HG reviews, it's pretty obvious he likes children's music. So my brain did something like this, "children's TV host = children's music." I was picturing some John Denver Sesame Street shit. The first twenty seconds of the first track, "Mighty Little Man," starts out mellow, just like I thought. Then the song reached out, grabbed me by the back of my head, and slammed my face into a tree. That's not John Denver.
I vaguely remember that review. Anyway, Record a Day was 10 pages deep by the time I started reading it, so I read all the early ones in an afternoon. I still haven't listened to most of those albums. BUT I'LL PICK UP CHUMBAWAMBA RECORD GODDAMNIT.
