? I have no clue.
or glass of berocca followed immediately by a pint of full fat milk sick?
i love Early Four Track though :)
a band that have changed a lot, but if you want to get into the current (and I think to a lot of people's minds, best)incarnation I'd go Hissing Fauna, followed by Skeletal Lamping then round out with Icons, Abstract Thee.
But their actual debut, Cherry Peel, is great, if not really anything like what they're doing now, really pretty, innocent, inventive acoustic pop. If you've got the time/money to y'know, follow their journey it's a pretty rewarding one. Then again, I guess nobody starts at the beginning with The Beatles, soooooo...
followed by an equal dose of Satanic Panic and The Sunlandic Twins. At this point, you should be in love. Then go for Cherry Peel and you get a whole new dimension to love. Then get Skeletal Lamping, and the only thing you'll ever be able to say ever again is 'buhhh buhhh of Montreal nnnnnggg' because life is so perfect.
of both, Stanic Twins... though maybe not the best place to start
I started with Adhils Arboretum - when they were a bit more 60s pop and have got everything they've done since. Not gone back any earlier, but assume this is even more 60s and less disco pop wig out.
but their earlier work is well worth investigating, cherry peel, the bedside drama, and the gay parade have all been my favourite ever album at some stage
As in "Dude, Hissing Fauna fucking shreds." Which it does.
get Sunlandic Twins, that's what I started with and they're one of my favourite bands now.
isn't a crazy first choice, it's definitely their most accessible record in terms of pure pop that's not too whimsical, and I'd say Oslo In The Summertime and And So Begins Our Alabee are the beginnings of the current oM thematically and emotionally.
Just that some of the second half is a bit dull and it doesn't quite pack the emotional wallop of Hissing Fauna or Skeletal Lamping
