I've been listening to this band lately and they're good, very good. I only listened to 'Lovelyville' for now, not sure what to check next. 'Strangers from the Universe', maybe?

Anyway 2x4s is a favorite for now, but they're all good, even those filler 'songs'.



It's really a bummer that there are only 10 responses in this thread all the way from 2006. Maybe people don't know about them like how I didn't know all these years. The name was familiar, but never really bothered to check them out. And how glad I am that I did.

They're one of those bands I think 'I really should get some of their stuff' and then 5 minutes later see something else & get that instead.

^I know what you mean. I have that same problem with some bands. But in this case, only their name was familiar, I didn't even have an idea what kind of music they play. For all I know they could have been some hardcore punk band. That was until they began popping up as a recommendation on last.fm, I mean really persistently. And so I checked them out. So far, last.fm recommendations have been great for me.

yeah!

Maybe because it was the first I heard, but that album is my favourite. I'm a huge fan of this band now, largely thanks to the wonderful Cardboard's links back in 2007. Lovelyville, Mother Of All Saints and Strangers From The Universe are their best albums, I highly recommend them all though!

^Thanks Gravity! One can always count on your recommendations. Yeah, I saw that 'Strangers from the Universe' and 'Lovelyville' have the best rating on allmusic. Not that it means much, but it can be a guideline sometimes. That's why I checked Lovelyville first and been meaning to get the other one next.

Allmusic is usually a decent enough guideline, although their rating for Mother Of All Saints is far too low I reckon. But yeah, I've used Allmusic for a long time for the purposes of deciding which album to check out first by a band I'm interested in, it's a handy wee resource.

They're back together for ATP, one gig apparently.

Big Boi (Outkast), Terry Riley, Thinking Fellers head new Animal Collective ATP additions - All Tomorrow's Parties

Would absolutely LOVE to see this band live. Can't afford to go to ATP though, and it's not the best lineup anyway. Let's hope they tour!

I'm very surprised at that. I know they've done some in New York, but I thought there were equivalent shows in the west.

The thing that annoys me about ATP is that they hold their events in May and December usually - which is the two months of the year in which I have exams at university. That said, if the line-up is good enough, then sometimes I'm unable to stop myself going. Like when the Jesus Lizard reformed, etc. **** exams when you could be watchin' David Yow live
