Default Favorite Elephant 6 group

Hipsters unite.

I'd say the Olivia Tremor Control.

There are a few I neglected to mention.

Out of the bands listed, Neutral Milk Hotel is my favorite. I think my all time favorite E6 band is Chocolate USA.

I didn't expect them to be anyone's favorites above all these others lol. I like all the groups though. The Ladybug Transistor is nice too.

I voted of Montreal out of loyalty, but Kevin Barnes' best work came after he left the label. So really, Olivia Tremor Control.

I don't believe I've heard anything else he's done.

i'd go with the olivia tremor control as being my favorite, for now at least. that's not really concrete, so i'll opt out on voting in the poll.

my elephant 6 knowledge is very limited, but from those unlisted, i think the high water marks and ladybug transistor(2) are up there in my favorites as well, or at least, they're pretty likeable

Black Swan Network is the only one I don't know... I love Black Foliage and In the Aeroplane about equally though.

I could never really get excited about the rest of them, just because they've got such similar sounds that they kind of bleed together after my favourites.

Really you are gonna make me pick between Circulatory System, NMH, and Oliva Tremor?

Even though two of them are comprised of some of the same members....No!! I love them all...
