    Jam from the newest album that morphs into a reprise of the 20 minute song from the previous album again
    Jam from the new album.

    It's slow burning music. Later Albini produced their first two albums when they signed with Kranky, so of course those are the ones that everyone raves over. Things We Lost in The Fire, in particular is the standout (ATP did a Don't Look Back set, for instance) that everyone usually starts with and for good reason:

    The good Reverend is one of the classic psychobilly/punk rockabilly dudes. There are albums, including five released after it, but the compilation Holy Roller is pretty much the alpha and omega. You'll get all the classic stuff.

    As far as George Michael, you're probably fine with just the hits. If you want to go further, Faith is the one album of his I was able to listen to at some point.

    Chronologically is the best, start with Cocaine Rodeo. You'll notice that "13th Floor" is the same song as QOTSA's "Tension Head." it was recoded as a Mondo Generator song first. A Drug Problem That Never Existed is really good too. Apparently there's a 2012 album too, I need to check it out.

    ^ Their self-titled debut was the first thing I heard, and it's a phenomenal album.

    Yeah, the debut is their best. The first three albums are all killer and bizarre. After that they're much more hit and miss.

    Thanks. Wonder where they'll be billed on the Psych Fest line-up. How are they live by the way?

    Woooooooooahh. I didn't know they were going to be on the lineup!!!!!!!!!!

    That's a huge score. I've never seen them but I've heard nothing but great things. The sets usually focus mostly on those first three albums with a few tracks from the newer one with the psychedelic cover. The original female vocalist, Rita Lee, is no longer in the group but I've heard the lady who replaced her is great.

    Nice. The add hasn't been announced yet... but it's on their tour itinerary. Really excited for January!

    Start with Is This It? Then listen to Youth of America. You'll love both and want to continue forward in their discography. The third album is similarly great, and then it's more hit or miss, but still largely hit.

    I think it was nosurprises, who pointed out a few months ago that the title track to Youth of America is one of the best things written by mankind so far. He's right.

    Whether or not you are, it's completely correct. There's a big reason that Kurt Cobain constantly cited Greg Sage as a huge influence and the true punk rocker out of Seattle. The guy was (maybe still is?) a force of nature.

    Also very punk rock: their box set is cheaper than most bands' single album CDs.

    Since Low was mentioned earlier in this page, I fell asleep to I Could Live In Hope this morning, which reminded me that the first song off that album might be my very favorite Low song. It's either that or "July."

    Not to mention better.

    Plus its awesome because Greg Sage gets all the money from the sales, since he runs the label and was the only musician on the first and (I think?) third albums.

    I Could Live in Hope is simply astounding. It's the only one of theirs I've given a front-to-back listen so far, and I intend to delve deeply into the rest of their catalog shortly. Really glad I'm happening to get into them this time of the year, their music is so perfect for cold days. Excited to hear the result of Jeff Tweedy producing their new one as well.
