    O'Brother is a rock band from Atlanta Georgia. They signed to Favorite Gentleman records in 2009 (run by members of Manchester Orchestra), and since then have been putting out some of the best music. Their debut full length "Garden Window" had a lot of high expectations set by fans and critics after the phenomenal EPs they had released prior to it. It was received very well and solidified a place for them as one of the elite bands in this scene.

    The songs that I've heard from this album have been fantastic. Can't wait to have it all in my hands.

    I liked Deconstruct, but haven't been able to get into their past albums.

    Been listing to Endless Light, trying to get into them. Love their live shows, and love the instrumentation, but lyrically and vocally, that's where I'm hung up and prevented from being won over.

    Just finished listening to Endless Light for the first time through about an hour ago. Absolutely incredible. Easily one of my favorites of the year so far, and this is actually the first time I've been able to enjoy one of their albums all the way through. The vocalist keeps getting better and better, which was the main selling point on the new album for me. However, I'll also point out that the dynamic shifts throughout the album (particularly how the drums handle very subtle shifts in groove and time signature) are impeccable.

    Whoaa. i only listened to "Bloodlines" once in preparation for this record and i didnt think it was that crazy. thought it was pretty average. but that song is huge, i dont know how it didnt resonate with me the first time.

    Again. I love the instrumentation. Trying to connect lyrically is my biggest hurdle.

    Glad you're loving it!

    I haven't. I haven't been able to connect lyrically, and I feel like that's the core of what pulls me into really loving a band.

    Brand New, Thrice, mewithoutYou. Those bands have, what I consider to be, genuinely brilliant lyrics. Instrumentation is important too though.

    Bands that I feel similarly about in regard to how I feel about O'Brother: Foxing, Manchester Orchestra (kind of hit or miss for me), Citizen, and pretty much any other band on Triple Crown and Run for Cover.

    That's pretty interesting. Usually the music/ instrumentation is what initially catches me with new music, but then the lyrics usually determine longevity.

    I actually enjoyed it more on a second spin. Listening for different things, trying not to dwell on the lyrics until I can actually read them as I listen.

    Okay, so on my fourth spin, I've preordered the 180g vinyl from TripleCrown.

    They got me. Time to go back and give their whole discography a better chance.

    Okay where's the best place to start with these guys if I've only heard one-off songs here and there?
