Find Me On:
1. At Dawn
2. It Still Moves
I’ve liked all of the top 3 more than the others at different times, but I think I’d go with At Dawn because of the haunted quality of the songs. Evil Urges revolted me when it came out, although I like the title track and some other moments. I think Jim’s voice and definitely the vocal production changed for the worse on this one.
Also, if I dare say, I like them better on record than live. For me, the current best live bands are Wilco, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Built To Spill, and Phoenix, and I love Fruit Bats!
I think “Diamond Dogs” is the best and most underrated Bowie record. The most unchained and unhinged in a demented prog rock musical theater kind of way. Seems to be one that nobody talks about, though. I think it’s the only one produced by him and he played a lot of the instruments on it as well.
If you like Tame Impala and want to hear something really different, check out Astra’s “The Black Chord”
One of the best recent prog/psych albums I’ve heard.
