Lately I have been listening to more of their stuff and I think I have the whole discography now apart from an EP or two.
I already throughly love Halcyon Digest (try saying that out loud, it's really such a beautiful name) and Microcastle so now I need to give the older stuff a more in-depth listen.
They are a truly brilliant band though and Bradford Cox is such an inspirational person, if you have the time read a bit about him and his childhood, it's amazing what he went through.
One thing that benefits from repeated listens and a look at live performances is the instrumentation here. I'm completely blown away by the use of guitar, made even more admirable by the fact that it's not especially in-your-face or showy.
If you do anything today please at least watch the first two minutes of this video, the intro here is absolutely magical. There might be some other instrument than guitar in there but for the most part it's just those three guys playing together making something other-worldly.http://www.youtube.com/v/SuIDGDL1Q18
