elbow

So I went to see Pete Yorn down at First Ave. last night and the opening band was REALLY good. They're called Elbow, they're from Manchester, and they definitely have a bit of a Radiohead vibe...not so much in a "this is the NEXT Radiohead" sort of way, but more in the way they approach music. That makes no sense. In any case, anyone here heard their album "Asleep in the Back" ?

yeah it's a great album, I started a thread about them in Lemonade Stand not long ago, they don't sound like radiohead, though their singer sounds a little bit like Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, they sound like many of the other current British rock bands of today but with a more eclectic style and atmosphere

I love them. But I think I've made that abundantly clear.

Well I picked up "Asleep in the Back" last night and have been listening to it today. Solid. I like it a LOT. Would definitely recommend.

You guys just read my mind! I was about to post a thread asking if this is a good album. My friend just sent me some lyrics (for 'Powder Blue' and 'Newborn'). Talk about intensily beatiful. Who ever writes the lyrics is a GREAT *writer* -- his style evokes something scattered, yet somehow contained.

Get the album. Every song on it is great. And the US release has the bonus track, "Asleep in the Back," which is just breath-taking. The lead singer, Guy Garvey, writes the lyrics. I agree, he's incredible. Most of his songs are written from personal experiences.

My PLEBA moment:
I love that picture.

Michael, if you think the lyrics are good wait till you HEAR those songs. They are achingly heart-rendingly beautiful, imho. Do get the album...I don't think you will regret it.

Thanks for the recommendations! I'll add it to the list.

So Bethany, you have certainly got into some pretty deep music lately, by the sounds of it. Are there some other albums you might recommend that you've recently discovered?

it's one of the premier albums of the last year or so, and if your cd doesn't have "Asleep in the Back" on it, you must d/l it, it's a gorgeous song as someone here has mentioned

check out "Scattered Black and White" the last song on the cd, its ending is very reminiscent of the intro to "Where the Streets Have No Name"

Screaming Flower, good to hear that you're enjoying the disc. I know I sure am.

Michael...well I dunno about deep, but I have been branching out a wee bit more lately. hehe. I was exposed to some good artists by friends I met in Switzerland for one. I'd also recommend you look into Damien Jurado. I have his album called "Ghost of David" and it's quite interesting. Very 'unplugged' and folk-like. He's quite a good song-writer. check him out if you get a chance.

Have you heard Neil Halstead? On his album, he does a song to the tune of "Ohio" by Damien Jurado, and he sang "Ohio" when he played in DC last Friday.

i'm lucky my version has asleep in the back. i listened to scattered black and white and you're right about streets-sounding ending. i wouldn't have noticed that. very cool. it's a beautiful way to end an album. i can't stop listening to it.

the music recommendations are one of the things i love most about this place. speaking of, wanderer, i asked this in your lemonade stand clinic thread earlier - which of their two cd's would you recommend since you've listened to them both now for a while? thanks.
