In the same vein as Murder Ballads, them lyrics and chilling melodies. Anyone got ideas?
Tender Prey is an album you should get. I personally think it's his best and The Mercy Seat in particular is fantastic, you'll love it.

Thanks for the recommendations, I'll be sure to give both a listen. Them lryics in Muder Ballads were just brilliant, story telling at its best.

You should think about getting Henry's Dream as well if you liked the sound of Murder Ballads. Also, Your Funeral My Trial is probably the darkest of his 80s albums, so it might be worth looking out for that too.

Ooo, so many to choose from. I might just go in for a penny in for a pound and get all of the albums mentioned.

I really liked Murder Ballads, 1 song actually amused me as well, which doesn't usually happen with music.

Was it the Curse Of Millhaven perchance?

One of the most psychotically awesome songs I've ever heard that and, at a push, my favourite off the album.

It was! I found it psychotic but at the same time it had a great humour to it... dunno how it contains both.

What's with Nick Cave? Why's he such a fuck up?

He's just that special

The album he does after that, the Boatman's Call (as you might have heard around here) is a complete turnaround from his past sound though, in that it's made up of laid-back, romantic, piano-led ballads. Absolutely amazing album all the same, but not exactly the kinda thing you seem to be looking for at the minute, so stick it on the back burner

Well I'm not really sure what I'm looking for to be honest, I just know I really liked Murder Ballads and it had an interesting edge to it. Something I haven't really heard before.. but I mean, it might be a nice change to go for something totally different. Oh you've confused me now Bulldog, but I think I'm gonna stick with the gloomy stuff, try to explore that area of him before I branch off

OK so here's a band out of Portland that I've been sitting on for ages. They're called The Standard and for some reason they really struck a chord with me. They were the band that opened my ears to more indie rock and I've yet to find a band that's exactly like them... or even a smidge bit like them. I've passed their 2008 album The Swimmer onto two other people and met with some contrasting remarks. One person loved it, the other person hated it and I think left the forum because of it.

Anyhow I don't really know how to classify them other than indie. They've got some shoegaze elements, but for the most part their stuff is pretty mellow, which is something that usually turns me off most indie bands, but for some reason it doesn't have that same effect on me with these guys. I couldn't find any Youtube videos and for some reason I can't create any either so you'll have to make due with their Myspace, but I really hope a few people check them out. Indie rock is one of the few genres that I really have no talking points with so when I find a band that I really like but nobody else knows about, I get frustrated because I want to talk about them...
