RE: spokane | from JR OlssonMar 02 2004 - 11:05

i think i am from sweden. and i think it's pretty hard NOT to understand that i was talking about the band spokane. but thanks for your comments people.

RE: spokane | from JasonFeb 06 2004 - 21:15

Spokane is a terrific band - if you like them check out Drunk as many of the same members are in it. Just about anything on jagjaguwar is great...Bevel, Nad Navillus, Patrick Phelan, etc.

RE: spokane | from BigBobFeb 06 2004 - 18:24

JR Olsson is from Sweden, and he's enquiring about the band Spokane.

RE: spokane | from michelFeb 06 2004 - 16:54

even i know spokane well worth checking them out as goes for lambchop & tindersticks, can't recall hearing anyone mention them, but then i don't check so frequently lately..

RE: spokane | from AndrewFeb 06 2004 - 14:40

While Idaho is better, Spokane is great, though I wouldn't even place them under the same category. I'd rank them the same as Alex except I think "Measurement" is weakest. I'd put their debut a bit above it.

RE: spokane | from christopheFeb 06 2004 - 12:53

all this confusion! spokane is a great band, and their newest release, measurement, while it may be their weakest, is still pretty damn good. one of the "slowest" bands that i like, there whisper-like vocals and and warming sounds can be absolutely beautiful. but i've noticed a love/hate relationship with others when i play it for them. either way, idaho is far superior in my humble opnion.

RE: spokane | from cFeb 06 2004 - 12:23

i thought he was referring the band "spokane".

RE: spokane | from eriolFeb 06 2004 - 10:46

Apparently, JR, you live in Spokane and have never heard of Idaho before, hence requiring a list of the best Idaho albums.

Either that, or this new band spokane likes to put out albums that have the same name as Idaho albums.

This is funny. It's even better because in the scope of world geography, Spokane is really not that far from Idaho.

For my part, I have never heard of spokane, but my interest is not piqued. What do they sound like?

RE: spokane | from chrisFeb 06 2004 - 08:38

you are right- I totally meant to put Levitate in after YAY. It is stunning.

RE: spokane | from ronFeb 06 2004 - 06:06

i would agree, but i would put "three sheets" after "hearts of palm," and you left out the amazing "levitate." i think by the third album you're emotionally ready to handle "levitate," which is arguably IDAHO's best album.

RE: spokane | from chrisFeb 06 2004 - 04:50

Start with Hearts of Palm, then buy Year after Year, 3 Sheets to the Wind, We Were Young and Needed the Money, This Way Out, Alas...pick up EPs as you find them.

RE: spokane | from Alex NiedtFeb 05 2004 - 16:25

Able Bodies, Proud Graduates, Measurement, whatever their debut was called. They're all great though. The titlte song from Proud Graduates is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

spokane | from JR OlssonFeb 05 2004 - 14:19

i am new to this band. i own the proud graduates and measurment. i got interested after reading some of you guys listened to them. to my ears they are kinda similar with low. and i like them alot.
