Ok I'm going to buy an lp for my dad for christmas. It is an uber big deal as his musical opinions matter a lot to me...
Almost as much as you wise people's musical opinions.
I've got it down to four:
* Bright Eyes-I'm Wide Awake...
* Bonnie Prince Billy- I see a darkness
* Band of Horses-Everything all the time
* Of Montreal- Hissing Fauna...
The safe bet would be Will Oldham but I think he may appreciate something different like Of Montreal/Band of Horses.
