Just got into The Microphones, and what a way to get into them.
Absolutely top notch.
Now try It Was Hot We Stayed in the Water and Mount Eerie
I remember first getting into them with that album too. Good times. It's the Microphones masterpiece for sure. But, you can't discount Mt. Eerie and It Was Hot We Stayed In The Water, the albums that bookend The Glow Pt. 2. Those three have made for some of the most glorious listening of my life (listen to em all in a row for extra awesomeness.
I LIKE the glow pt2 but I don't LOVE it.
I know I know.
It's the Mount Eerie record 'Lost Wisdom' that does it for me. I feel about that like other people seem to feel about the glow.
Big fan of Eric's Trip and Julie Doiron's solo stuff, that album is awesome.
It's amazing. Not as good as the Glow Pt 2 mind.
Agreed on Live in Japan though, there's that amazing version of universe conclusion there.
great ghosts, the blow part 2, universe conclusion, and its got the nicest live sound i've heard on an a live album
its definitely a headphones on a long journey or rainy day for me. listen to it on tinny speakers and its a piece of shit. but on the right day i asolutely love it
or at night in a dark room lit only by a computer screen light. It needs a lot of attention but it's worth it.
I got really into the tuneful parts of the Microphone's Mount Eerie album too... after you get past the stupid noise stuff, there's some heartbreaking music nestling in there.
The new Mount Eerie album is absolutely superb too. Best thing he's done since the Mount Eerie album, no question.
see 'I Want To Be Cold' & Samurai Sword.
It doesn't do anything for me.
an mp3, Stones Ode, sounds like it's been crafted for years so bodes well for the album :) everything since Mt Eerie has sounded a bit lofi for my tastes, despite some good songs.
Am really enjoying one of the boots on the Mount Eerie Preservation Society site, he's a bit hit and miss live as he insists on playing really short songs but get him on a good night and it's a sublime experience
