Calexico are one of those bands I’ve always thought about listening to, but never actually got round to doing it. They seem to have a load of albums that look the same and I never really knew where to start, so I eventually decided to take a punt on Carried To Dust.
The first song I heard by Vampire Weekend was “Mansard Roof”. I hated everything about it.
Lackthereof is the solo project of Danny Seim, one of the three original members of Menomena. It’s a good album that suffers from being compared to Seim’s main band. Includes an interesting cover of “Fake Empire”.
