Anyone here a fan?

I've only recently started exploring the label and I was wondering if anyone here could recommend some essentials. =)

The Glow pt 2 - The Microphones
C'mon Miracle and Advisory Comittee - Mirah
The Soft and the Hardcore - Tender Forever

and lots more. Those are my favorites though

favorites.. the ones with stars mean "buy this right the fuck now"


Beat Happening - Jamboree**
The Blow - Paper Televison**
Calvin Johnson - What Was Me
Jason Anderson - New England
Kimya Dawson - I'm Sorry That Sometimes I'm Mean, Remember That I Love You**
Mirah - You Think Its Like This but Really Its Like This**
Old Time Relijun - Lost Light

pretty much anything by beat happening rules. older the blow stuff is REALLY good too. its more acoustic/folk. calvin johnson is suuuuper folky. its nice. jason anderson, best live show of all time. i was so happy when i left that show. so feel good. kimya dawson is the shiiiiit. i cant get enough of her. mirah has a super sweet voice and the lyrics are great. old time relijun RAWWKKZ.

jason anderson is one of the best live performers there is! (also he is under the name Wolf Colonel sometimes.)

I agree with all of the above. For God's Sake, listen to:

LITTLE WINGS - LIGHT GREEN LEAVES

It will blow your mind.

I'm a classic K fan.. not so much into the newer stuff. Tiger Trap's s/t album, Go Sailor's s/t album, "Holiday in Rhode Island," by the Softies, "Backwash," by Talulah Gosh, and "Brainwashed," by the Crabs are all pretty essential. Also check out the Bartlebees, Gaze, Heavenly, Some Velvet Sidewalk, Lois, and Girl Trouble.

Modest Mouse's old stuff is pretty good (see Sad Sappy Sucker).
