    Since it's the only thing seconded and because I don't want to give you all a chance to choose something shitty, I'm going with Electrelane.

    I seconded because I have no idea what they sound like and I think I'll trust your decision here.

    I've actually been meaning to give them a closer listen. Everything I've heard I've liked, but I still don't feel like I know them at all. I always file them under "Stereolab-alike" in my head, but I don't think that's really accurate. So perfect opportunity.

    Electrelane certainly have some Stereolab to them. I learned this when I heard Stereolab and was all, hey, that has some Electrelane to it.

    They also have some Krautrock thought that is more on their basically instrumental improvy debut, Rock it to the Moon (which, oddly, always bring to mind Come On Die Young)and Axes, which is my favorite of theirs and which kind of combines the experimental side of the debut with the more developed pop song-craft of The Power Out into a rich and dynamic album.

    I will third (or fourth) this reccomendation. Partly due to the strange coincidence of myself just listening to and rediscovering it but 2 days ago. I hadn't heard it in a while and it's really awesome. I will be listening to them a bit more myself in the coming weeks I think. If you enjoy Stereolab already I think it's logical that you'd enjoy Electralane a bit as well, but of course, they're a pretty separate entity in the music universe...

    While I was more interested in the NMH option, I will bow to the recommendations of others and suggest you start listening to Electrelane And no more of that skipping days isht - what kind of research are you doing here?!

    For the sake of creating a list, I will give a few suggestions. I am trying to come up with a theme but I can't. Remember, the most effective way to expand your horizons is to listen to stuff you've never heard of. And if you think mix(tapes)s are out of the picture, you might want to think again.

    I'm on track 8, "Oh Comely," of Neutral Milk Hotel's In The Aeroplane Over The Sea. I dig it so far. I'll post full comments later in the week.

    I got more out of both of these albums on first listen than I did all week with A Ghost Is Born. I really love the way Mangum sings "I love you Jesus Chriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiist."

    Electrelane sounds good but I'll have to bow out on this one and listen to Neutral Milk Hotel. Why? Because I don't own anything by Electrelane! I'll read the commentary on this one for future music purchasing.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I’m not totally against it, unless there’s beastiality or torture.

    Hold up, I was thinking of something else. No, I have no problem with downloading.

    Great picks for this week. I love both albums and might join you in listening to them every day just for the heck of it.

    Souldischarge, I'm disappointed that you listened to the wrong advice on Wilco albums and aren't immediately checking out "Summerteeth" instead. Let me explain Wilco this way:

    Summerteeth = The Bends (their best songwriting)
    Yankee Hotel Foxtrot = OK Computer (their experimental masterpiece)
    A Ghost Is Born = Kid A (next logical step, but the songwriting isn't up there anymore)

    For both bands, I tend to lean towards their "experimental masterpieces" as far as start to finish headphone albums, but for stand-out song perfection, nothing beats Summerteeth / The Bends.

    PLEASE give them another try. Honest!

    I stated the rules clearly in the first post. I'm letting you fuckers decide for me and you chose A Ghost Is Born. It hasn't turned me off to Wilco or anything. Even good bands have boring albums.

    And there's nothing wrong with the songwriting on Kid A.

    I agree. I don't listen to this album enough and when I actually do, I wonder why I don't listen to it more often.

    you should change the rules, then. From now on don't listen to anyone who told you AGIB is the right place to start with Wilco. who knows where they might steer you wrong next.

    Exactly.

    Patrick, I gave my .02 but didn't want turn first week of your project into some stupid Wilco debate. You listened though and the thread wasn't derailed so that's all that's important.

    Im going into full scale BonnaMode. I already listened to "Born To Run" in its entirety for the first time.

    Next is Summerteeth and/or Sky Blue Sky by Wilco because those are the ones I own

    They'll be playing much more Sky Blue Sky material at Bonnaroo though... just sayin.

    Summerteeth is probably the better album of the two, but I love them both so you can do no wrong on that choice.

    This all really needs to be taken to the Wilco thread. If anything we should be discussing NMH here.
