I would like to get into this band and I was wondering where is the best place to start?
I thought I maybe worded that question wrongly. I think I might go with Knock Knock, I've heard some good things. Thanks.
and julius caesar are my favourites...
i think the former is the best one
That's one of my least favourites...
although i dont really like dongs of sevotion as much as you evidently do...
as terse as it does, apologies
1. Dongs of Sevotion
2. Doctor Came At Dawn
3. Red Apple Falls
4. Knock Knock
5. A River Ain't Too Much To Love
I absolutely adore Smog. One of my all time favourite artists, and I get to see him in a few weeks! Can't wait.
I'd say that 'A River Ain't Too Much To Love', is the best starting point, as it's where I did, and I've loved him ever since. It's the most immediate, I'd say, and quite accessible, but still very much a Smog album, maybe not quite as dark.
Also, maybe check out his new album, 'Woke On A Whaleheart', under his real name, Bill Callahan. The above is also applicable to this record.
Hope that helps :)
