hey, thanks kyle. i just sat down to read it. Brilliant. Favorite parts of the review: mentions of the intimacy that a different kind of fix maintains during still; I totally agree with how mystical the climax of shuffle. I also totally agree about how Jack threw in his dance music styles in the mix. It's a great album for them.
Also Hey, i just watched maccabees's pelican video on youtube. What's the best place to start with the maccabees? i'm interested...
It's a tough call, each of their three albums is pretty different to the next because of their growth as songwriters and producers. If you enjoyed "Pelican" definitely pick up Given To The Wild
, their latest album which came out in January. But as a go to starting point, I'd still probably recommend their second album, Wall Of Arms
. Their debut Colour It In
is really great too but doesn't feel as much like a well constructed album as the other two.
If I was you, I'd probably get all three and listen to them in order to hear their progress: Colour It In, Wall Of Arms, Given To The Wild
