It's supposedly their most accessible release, so I guess that would be a good starting point for you as well. I did catch them on Letterman when they were out promoting the album.. enjoyed them a little better in that context, but still not quite enough to keep the video recording.
Well...low expectations never hurt
anything...lol. I put it on for a listen, and went about some work...and it caught my attention and made me stop what I was doing a few times; always a good sign. I read they had been compared to Barrett-era Pink Floyd...which is HIGH praise indeed in my
book. I heard it a few times, but I'm not ready to anoint them psychedelic legends
I'm listening to Strawberry Jam
now. Just so I'm clear, that's supposed to be the "good" one, right? I guess maybe this is supposed to be "groundbreaking" and "atonal" to some...but I'm a big-time Elephant 6 guy, so this doesn't exactly thrill me. I'd listen to Cherry Peel
about 4,000 times before I'd pay much attention to this.
