This might be an easier method of deciding which one to buy.
Cursive or Hella...
Which one should I buy?
i have both, and ugly organ does very little for me.
whereas that hella record went a very small way to changing my life a few years ago. cant recommend it enough.
...have you heard of Volta Do Mar?
Want to get their "At The Speed of Light or Day" album. The sound clips suggest that they're quite similar to Hella, circa "Horse".
is that some kind of crazy play upon The Mars Volta?
in other words, no, not heard em.
Their aforementioned album was out in 2001. If anything, it's a vice versa thing re. Mars Volta.
Either way...you should probably ch-ch-check them/it out..
over both the ugly organ and hold yr horse is. i do have all three. but the volta do mar is just excellent and easier to listen to than hella. cursive are one of my favourite bands though..
It says (i.e the website) that the Hella album comes as a "blister pack".
What the fuck?!
Is it just a normal jewel case thing, or a snazzy term for "digipack"?
i also have both. hold your horse is.
hold your horse is, is one of the best things i've ever heard
B - Volta Do Mar were fucking great, get At the speed... it's almost like surf math. Much more jazz and fluid than Hella.
the ugly organ just makes my head hurt.
