Album Oriented 92: Super Furry Animals and Elliott Smith

We remember the nineties, specifically 1997, as Daniel presents Welsh neo-psych Super Furry Animal’s 1997 release, Radiator, from the New Musical Express top 100 list. Just how neo-psych is it? Three band members are credited with “claps.” That’s neo-psych, right there. Erich discusses whisper-troubadour Elliott Smith’s 1997 folk release, Either/Or, from Entertainment Weekly’s top 100. Daniel’s Mid-Year Kicker Pick, also from 1997, bears mentioning here because he found an album he loved from 1997 and it isn’t Radiohead.
