mod got me into him a while ago -- I started out with Gold. Some tracks there will already be familiar just from osmosis. Favorites: New York, New York; When The Stars Go Blue; and Nobody Girl, 'cause you can kinda get lost in it. He did a cover of Oasis's Wonderwall which was featured on The O.C. a while back and is pretty gorgeous. Find it if you can. I haven't really gotten into 29 yet. It's more moody music, kinda the same vibe as Fiona's leaked album, with the sulky, slinky wanna-drink-martinis-in-your-bathrobe vibe it gave off. All the songs are pretty long and epic, but it takes a certain mindset to really appreciate it all. Back when polka was talking about the reverb in Night Birds... well, it pretty much makes that song. It gave me chills, so I'd say it's worth checking out for that alone. 29, the title track, is decent too, but nothing else has really clicked for me yet, though I've only given that one a few listens.
