Soft Boys-Underwater Moonlight

I think that it goes without saying, but I'll go ahead and say it anyway: You should buy these records if you like them.
Of course, there's going to be some shit that's up here exclusively because you can't buy it, but...

Anyway, this record has been slaying me every bus ride to work for about a month now and it just keep getting better.
It's strange that this was put out by Matador since they kinda vaguely remind me of the glory days of Pavement. I'm sure that Pavement would take that as a pretty insane compliment since Soft Boys just get it so much better. Very intelligent (not in an overbearing way) hooks and hilarious lyrics and the guitar parts are simple to listen to and impossible to figure out.
Very very highly recommended to fans of guitar rock bands who aren't total dolts.

1. I Wanna Destroy You
2. Kingdom of Love
3. Positive Vibrations
4. I Got the Hots
5. Insanely Jealous
6. Tonight
7. You'll Have to Go Sideways
8. Old Pervert
9. Queen of Eyes
10. Underwater Moonlight
11. He's a Reptile
12. Vegetable Man (Syd Barrett)
13. Strange
14. Only the Stones Remain
15. Where Are the Prawns?
16. Dreams
17. Black Snake Diamond Rock
18. There's Nobody Like You
19. Song #4

Underwater Moonlight

But then again, Soft Boys predate Pavement by a good ten years.
IMHO, the debut "A Can of Bees" is even better.
