He's done tons of stuff... What are his best albums?
But they're both absolutely gorgeous, and worked well for me as starting points. The new one (At The Cut) is perhaps a little bleaker, appropriately given the circumstances, but North Star Deserter is just as beautiful.
But any recommendations as to earlier stuff would be great, I'm looking to explore further.
Dark Developments looks interesting, is it any good?
Is The Actor Happy?
Not neccessarily his best but it's definitely his most accessible album.
To be honest, all of his stuff is pretty wonderful.
You're in for a real treat - enjoy!
think it has those lambchop cats as his backing band, its kind of a loose concept album and has "maiden" which is a fuckin jam - it includes the line "i might as well go on ahead and act like a butt" which always makes me chuckle
though every record has something to recommend it, 'West of Rome' is great any time.
Is the Actor Happy?'s accessible-ness put me off him for quite a while cuz I didn't get what the fuss was about, then I got 'Little', 'Drunk' and 'West of Rome' and it clicked. 'At The Cut' is fantastic also
I'll get listening.
is a wonderful record with some great playing. Lambchop + Vic was a great match!
