I just discovered this magnificent band. I bought Sky Blue Sky on vinyl last night, it also came with the cd. I highly recommend them. Also, Nels Cline is a beast on guitar.

If there's a thread on them somewhere go ahead and close it, I couldn't find it tho.

The Bible is awesome. Revelation is so badass, I mean, dragons and angels and the devil having an epic battle in the clouds? Badass.

I agree. Sky Blue Sky is pretty amazing. I love that mellow sound. You should also give their other CD, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, a go too. A lot of people think it's better than Sky Blue Sky, but I personally think it's the other way around. But it's not bad.

Listen to their live album "Kicking Television." They're good in the studio but they really shine live. I'd go so far as to say that they're the greatest live band of today.

Think there's a big thread in the Indie forum but ohwell.

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is just incredible.


I searched through all the pages, nothing.

I think Side with the Seeds is probably my favorite track off Sky Blue Sky. Impossible Germany is great too tho.

I wish that Jeff Tweedy wasn't credited as the writer of all the songs tho, it makes it seem like less of a band. Even if he did write most of the songs, it kind of belittles the rest of the band imo. Also if they all wrote songs we wouldn't have that problem would we?

Did you get Yankee Hotel Foxtrot yet, Dave?


Not yet, I'll grab it the next time I'm out. Best Buy has that on vinyl too, so next chance I get I'll get that.

So this thread kinda died.

I've listened to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

I determined Sky Blue Sky > Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

I love them, but I think they have a huge thread in the Alt./Indie sect.
Oct. 20th, 2009: New guitar AND front row for Mars Volta.

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?


I met Sonic Youth on June 30th, and Mars Volta on Oct 20th.

Yes, but I already created this thread. Besides I like the people in the modern rock forum better

I like Sky Blue Sky (Impossible Germany and Shake It Off rule) and haven't listened to anything else. I'll probably some more of their music soon.

Don't forget Side with the Seeds, that solo by Nels is so beastly.
