Just have to say that this list has provided a solid foundation for me to discover and get “into” XTC over the past few days. Thanks for making it!

I love this dude. He seems less grumpy than he used to be (Mark Kozelek is much more intolerable nowadays) and he makes everything interesting. This site posted an interview a couple weeks ago where he mostly just talked about baseball and poker and cats — yet it was still engaging as fuck.

“This is our first show in eighteen years?” I mean… that’s just purely untrue! A falsity!

The fact they’re playing music together again makes me the happiest boy.

This was a great interview. I’ve never actually heard him have a conversation. I’ve only ever read quotes from him — all of which were noteworthy for being particularly grumpy. He’s surprisingly pleasant and normal and interesting.

“Top 10 Phish Songs” might be a better fit. It would have to include “Best Version(s)” as well.

I love Chris Tomson. Everything he writes here is true. Preach, brother.

Forgot to include a DISCLAIMER: This album has the power to wreck the shit out of you emotionally.

It also is an essential listen if you ever liked the bands Brand New or Sunny Day Real Estate.

I’m calling it: The Hotelier’s “Home, Like Noplace Is There” is going to be the most criminally overlooked/underappreciated album of 2014. You all should carve out 40 minutes of your time to listen to it. It will blow you away. Here it is in full: http://tinyengines.bandcamp.com/album/home-like-noplace-is-there

Other than that, I like a lot of these picks!
