Big Blood & The Grove (2010)

For the uninitiated, this might be a good entry into the short-lived yet extensive oeuvre of Big Blood, as it's quite possibly their best collection of tunes yet.
In addition to the jaunty stoned off-key folk singalong stompers they've become known for over the course of this last year, there're a few nice drawn-out psych jams on here, as well. Charalambides or GHQ might be decent reference points for the sound on a couple of these tracks.
But forget comparisons -- when Caleb and Colleen are in action, there's no real comparison. No one else sounds like this... and no one (as far as we're concerned) can write songs like this...
