Someone recommended Ocean Songs. Is this the best starting point?
or maybe not! but actually all of them are brilliant so you cant really make a wrong move.
'Ocean Songs' hangs together more as a whole and is absolutely beautiful, genuinely evocative of the sea. But because it is so coherent it is also somewhat samey. 'she has no strings' is more varied, includes a real rock out as well as more traditional violin led semi improv stuff.
But yeah, it's all good.
Make sure you go see them play (if you haven't before) next time they come over.
Easily one of the best bands I've ever seen.
or horse stories.
live they are amazing, one of the best live bands i have seen, google them and you should find some great radio sessions.
talks about it well, and i agree with how it advises buying the albums (dirty 3, horse stories, ocean songs, whatever you love you are) to get a good feel for how their sound developed. Those last three are the good uns though.
part 2 is in december, and 3 in january
but fuck it, just dive in, you're either going to be into all of it or none of it
but the other half is ace, I love the version of Kim's Dirt.
I lost interest in She Has No Strings for a year or so but rediscovered it and it's a total grower.
and it's good...
