    These guys are deadly. Just got "In an Aeroplane over the sea" and it is mental.

    Acousticy folk with mad psycadelic bits thrown in (bag pipes, banjos, musical saws, droney things and lyrics like "I love you Jesus Christ"

    try the music tapes. There is some NMH connection (as there is with the olivia tremor control - I think) with them, and they are rather fantastic psychedelic unsaness. Also, very nice cd packaging.

    I remember these guys. I taped that song 'everything is' off the Evening Session about 7 years ago, and used to scowl freebird looking for them. I just presumed I'd got the name wrong or something.

    It's an awesome album. The first track(s), "The King of Carrot Flowers Parts I, II & III", is one of the most amazing pieces of psychedelia I've heard anytime, anywhere, and the rest of the album is nearly as good. I believe Mr and Ms Minka are also huge fans.

    Their other album, "On Avery Album" is also great, if not quite up to the level of "Aeroplane". Still worth checking out, though.

    Er, that's the Doobie Brothers, not the Byrds, right? Or is it a cover?

    Never mind. I checked, and the Doobie Bros' version is indeed a cover of the Byrds song.

    Pantone was talking about them I think. Pantone knows his shit.

    Bah. And it is indeed "On Avery Island", not "Album", as Lisa subtly pointed out.

    Not enough coffee today, obviously.

    Which albums from OTC and Apples in Stereo should I check out?
  17. photon

    photon Well-Known Member

    Dunno if it's their best, but I have "Black Foliage" from Olivia Tremor Control and like it quite a bit. I'm sure someone else who knows them better can give you a more useful recommendation, though.

    for the apples "The Discovery of a World Inside the Moone" is my fav also love
    "Her Wallpaper Reverie" . or if ya prefer straight ahead short buzzy guitar songs instead of their normal layered sound check out "velocity of sound".

    `

    Apples - Start at the beginning Fun Trick Noisemaker and Tone Soul Evolution are my favourites. FTM was all recorded on four track, and sounds amazing. Similarly, the album that I listen to most from OTC is Dusk at the Cubist Castle (which I think is their first) - some great psychedelic pop. One of the best gigs I was ever at was Neutral Milk Hotel/Olivia Tremor Control/Music Tapes in Sweden in about '98(?). Everybody was in everyone elses band to the point that it was difficult to understand which band was actually on at any one time.

    I haven't listened to much of the whole Elephant 6 stuff in the last few years, but that Neutral Milk Hotel album is never far from the turntable.

    I really was praying someone would do an NMilkH song for the Food Hoot.

    King of Carrot Flowers is just incredible and it would have earned double points on the theme...

    Also could work this song into the PLANTS Hoot and/or the ROYALTY Hoot. Hmmm...
