Just finished Kaputt (plus Bay of Pigs if you get the vinyl). What the fuck Dan Bejar? I just pretty much had a total moment. As I said in another thread I loved the first side, then by side two I was kinda thinking "Great stuff, but maybe a little to much?". But side three, holy shit! I really forgot where I was for a while. Excellent record experience, for sure. Listening to Bay of Pigs after almost felt giddy. Good job Dan Bejar.

Just had it pointed out, that it was actually "side three" that was vinyl only ("Prelude(Estuary)", "Nagel's Marimba", "The Laziest River", "Palm Springs Life", and "Landing on Water"). Wow, these songs really seal the deal.

Ok, I'll do this again...
Conor had a brother who drowned in a bathtub when they were both children. Conor went on to write roughly ninety bagillion songs about it, get rich and contract herpes from some emo chick(s); his brother stayed dead.
