Perils got some love on Drowned in Sound's Underappreciated Albums '00-'14 staff picks:
They are dead on re: that Death Cab for Cutie album. Everyone seemed to hate it, but I thought it was great.
indeed, stellar Death Cab record!
it's a shame Chris left the band, I can't imagine any legit Death Cab lineup without him.
way excited for their upcoming release.
I'm a DCFC hack from way back and that's still the ONE album I've never heard. I don't know why. Eventually I will get into it.
Paper Television by The Blow is super super super underrated. That album is the shit.
speaking of DCFC, vinyl reissues of their Barsuk era LP's will be released in November. pretty pumped for that!
Not on the list, but some of my favorite records that are fairly recent and could be considered underrated would be the Heirlooms of August and Hiss Golden Messenger records.
South - From Here On In (2001)
I'm a big UNKLE fan, and James Lavelle produced the album and it came out on MoWax Records, so I had to check it out.
So good. They also co-headlined a tour with Elbow when their first album dropped as well - amazing shows.
@pushdraw yes, Herilooms Of August are waaaaaaaay too underrated. They're so good, on both albums it hurts.
