Where to start?
or cLOUDDEAD for more lo-fi even though it ain't just him
Download Alopecia, love it like your own bastard child and then look for Yoni Wolf side bands or anyone on the Anticon label and love them all like the bastard children before them.
on emusic - so start with them all.
and I really really liked it at first but now I can't eally listn to it as I find his lyrics lame and his voice annoying. Plus the music in the back ground is really generic and samey thru the album.
I bloody loved it at first though I dunno what happened...
I might have a look into the other stuff.
Its a nice album and all that I just can't listen to it all the way thru in one sitting his voice grates like hell.
Get a ticket to the London Scala show (November 4th) and float in their unremitting greatness live..
the idea of starting with alopecia makes me do a little sick in my mouth but thats only maybe beause i am a twat. it is very good, but i would say start with sanddollars ep or elephant eyelash. start in the middle. but then make sure after you listen to oaklandazulasylm too cos his early stuff when why? was a solo project is good too.
if you want to check out cLOUDDEAD too then get the self titled album or ten?
BUT BUT REALLY you need to check out hymie's basement which was a project he did with fog and it's totally amazing.
maybe you should start with that. basically i can't chose. JUST GET IT ALL.
with you on hymies basement.
and yeah, pretty much everything he's ever done/participated in is completely awesome anyway, so it doesn't matter too much
go for elephant eyelash and spend forever falling in love with it over and over.
Alopecia is great but it's not the place to start, you'll love it all the more if you buy it after EE
because it has 'Whispers Into The Other' on it, which is fucking brilliant.
And it did me no harm
afterschool america and early whitney are probably my favourite two why? songs.
hymie's basement are alright. lightning bolts and man hands by hymie's is amaaaaaaazing. the rest is fine.
the EPs by why? are incredible actually, get those definitely.
elephant eyelash is good, very good. alopecia is good, very good too. get everything.
that record is pure perfection from start to finish.
followed by the sanddollars ep.
then hymies basement. if you can check out "live from ana's cabin" then do.
then fog's ether teeth and 10th avenue freakout.
Hooray for Fog love.
Absolutely Elephant Eyelash. Both EPs from it are fucking superb, too.
But yeah, get it all.
and i think it's probably one of the best places to start. I really really love alopecia, but find elephant eyelash tiresome, so i'm a bit weird and perhaps cannot be trusted.
I'M GOING TO LISTEN TO WHY? NOW. HELLZ YEEEH.
Am really into 'Alopecia' at the moment, (as this is all I know) keep considering the whole 'Anticon' 'scene'. Have no real reason to like this, other than what has been said on these forums before, I'm sure. however if you keep with it, it'll bear fruit. very much depends on you're taste, don't get swallowed, just go with what you like. Give it time though.
