I can help a little with pixies, but there are more knowledgeable than I on the board.

I've always wanted to get into The Tragically Hip. I really like the 2 or 3 songs I know of theirs, especially "Escape is at Hand for the Travlin' Man". Is that album (Phantom Power) a good place to start?

I feel like I'd probably fall hard for Primal Scream. I enjoyed Screamadelica a few times, but not enough to even remember the songs.

If Sigur Rós is elf music Morgoth might have been right.

Phantom Power was their last really solid album, though they were losing a lot of the rock sound I fell in love with. I think with Phantom Power they were reckoning that they weren't going to make it in the US (or elsewhere) like they had hoped. The songs are a little smaller, with lots of very Canadian nods.

From Phantom Power my faves are;
Poets - Far from my fave on the album but this is them still trying to rock.
Bobcaygeon - This song always takes me away to a nice place.
Fireworks - I love the opening riff to death. The lyrics are quintessentially Canadian in such a quaint way.

But if Escape is your thing I can suggest the following, all post Phantom Power;

Music@Work (album);
Lake Fever,
The Bear

In Violet Light (album);
The Darkest One,
It's a Good Life if You Don't Weaken - Just superb
Silver Jet,
The Dark Canuck

In Between Evolution (album) - this album is pretty solid.
Heaven Is a Better Place Today,
Gus: The Polar Bear From Central Park - Groove for days.
If New Orleans is Beat,
Are We Family,
Goodnight Josephine

World Container (album);
The Drop Off,
World Container

End of the day, The Hip were a live band. On their good nights, I would be transported from the first note. If it's available, check out Live From The Vault - Volume 1). Recorded on the Day For Night tour. Artistically, I think that album was their peak and this is a good representation of them in their golden hour.

My early faves, and it could really be the five album run of Up To Here through Trouble at the Henhouse;

The Tragically Hip (album);
Highway Girl

Up To Here (album) - beautiful thick guitars galore;
Blow at High Dough,
New Orleans Is Sinking,
38 Years Old,
Boots or Hearts

Road Apples (album);
Little Bones - The opening riff, so full of explosive potential set in a loose groove. I've seen this live where it felt like the universe exploding.
Cordelia,
Long Time Running - a slow smoker,
Three Pistols - Again, the opening riff into a loose groove. Lyrics couldn't get more Canadian.
Fiddler's Green - Poignancy at its best. When my kid was just a baby and he was going in for neurosurgery, well the future was very uncertain. I listened to this song, balled my eyes out and then went back into the hospital a little stronger and ready to face that future, knowing it would not be as dark as this song.

Fully Completely (album);
Just play the whole thing. It's a rock album through and through, and in the best sense of the word.
Wheat Kings - If you listen to one song off this album, make it this one.

Day For Night (album) - Their artistic best. They've really pulled back and have learned power in using space where they relied on a loose groove in the past. Just play the whole thing again.
Grace, Too
Greasy Jungle
So Hard Done By
Nautical Disaster
Scared - If you listen to one song off this album, make it this one.

Trouble at The Henhouse (album);
Gift Shop - Lyrically, the band facing up to the fact that for some unknown reason they aren't breaking big outside of Canada and learning to embrace.
Springtime In Vienna
Ahead By a Century
700 Foot Ceiling
Butts Wigglin
Coconut Cream

A long post but being Canadian, liking rock music and being in my 20's for their heyday, The Hip is in my musical DNA.

Seriously twisted stuff. I miss the days of his mid song stories.



And an early show, 1990. It starts slow but oh how it builds.

Their most recent compilation, Maximum Rock n Roll is a good place to start

Screamadelica and Xtrmntr are my fav PS albums

Pink Floyd is one for me. I feel like I know the hits, but not really much else. Never got into them like I did other bands of the time
