I’m a big fan and I have all their albums and EPs, plus their recent DVD and a handfull of bootlegs. I can’t pick a fave…but “If You’re Feeling Sinister” and “Tigermilk” are very awesome.
I’ve never heard of “twee pop” but what nonsuch says, it’s spot on.
Their music is generally about feeling bored, or weird, or lost, or riding on a bus (one of the songwriters actually does spend alot of time on busses, hanging out).
If you want SONGS…some of my favorites are:
Get Me Away From Here I’m Dying
Lonliness of a Middle Distance Runner
Judy and the Dream of Horses
Dirty Dream #2
There’s like 8 people in the band, and sometimes they sound huge (like in Dirty Dream) and sometimes very small (Get Me Away From Here).
I tend to think of it as “sissy rock” but I made that up myself My “sensitive” brother thinks they’re cool but my manly-man friend who heard them being ripped on in High Fidelity won’t give them a second listen
