Where to begin with them? Heard a few songs and really like them.
strawberry jam and den work from there
are the best starting points
1.'Feels' (psychedlic pop masterpiece)
2.'Sung Tongs' (acoustic-y psychedlic pop masterpiece),
3.'Strawberry Jam' (they're latest - quality slightly dipping but still really great)
4. 'Prospect Hummer' EP (EP with Vashti Bunyan - her voice is awesome)
5. 'Spirit they're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished/Danse Manatee (split double LP) (Spirit is excellent, lots of weird poppy tunes with random outbursts of noise, Danse is less good),
6.'People' EP (made around the same time as 'Feels' and pretty nice)
7.'Here comes the Indian' (probably the most difficult to get into - on initial listens devoid of any tunes or hooks but on subsequent listens through headphones it's starting to slowly make some sense).
However, you should also get 'Person Pitch' by Panda Bear (a member of Animal Collective). For me the best record that came out in 2007. It's a crazy pop masterpiece largely made up of samples and gorgeous vocals and doesn't get boring even after the 10,000th listen :-)
Feels is psychedelic brilliance. Sung To
i found strawberry jam thoroughly disappointing.
If only for Grass...
Then 2/ Panda Bear, Person Pitch
Then probably, for me, 3/ Strawberry Jam
