idk how i slept on this band for like what. 20 years??
I recently got dangerously immersed in their discography thanks to a podcast, and over the last couple months have gone from casually fond of their big singles to uhh, thinking of them as one of my favorite bands.
Someone on this board (Tlon i think? Wow what happened to that dude, are they still around??) once put in my head the idea of music that you were always a fan of, that was just there at a fixed point in your personal timeline waiting for you to catch up. Where you listen to them for the “first time” and feel like you’re gaslighting yourself – no way, i always loved these guys, what the fuck am i talking about? Thats kind of how going through these dudes’ albums has felt to me. Theres an alternate timeline out there where REM were my gateway band into alternative music instead of Talking Heads.
Anyways that’s enough wankery, talk about this good good band and/or post your favorites plz. or we can just talk about how adorable Mike Mills is.
i think my favorite is probably
but there’s also
actually everything on chronic town fucking rules, listen to all of it straightaway even if you’re "not a fan"
what hooked me into trying out their whole discog was listening to this EP and going “wtf, this is the same guys who did Man on the Moon”
