started listening to daniel johnson this weekend (hi, how are you) and i was shocked out how similar some of the stuff on here is to sad sappy sucker. anyone else familiar with his work or if isaac is a daniel johnson fan? the keyboard (?) sound in bmx crash is identical to the one on walking the cow. well at least very similar.

^Good call there. I can't remember what interview it's from, but I definitely remember Isaac saying Sad Sappy Sucker (and Tube Fruit, etc.) embarrassed him because they had a sort of mental-patient, Daniel Johnston feel.

Daniel Johnston's great when he's listenable. Yip Jump Music is my favorite album.

I'll turn you onto Mercury Rev (not like you don't know them already, and if not you can thank me later).

Though they've been mentioned already, the guitars in Lync (later Love as Laughter for a fact) have a hint of Modest Mouse. Luckily, a lot of their material is posted on youtube.

Best band on that list is the Pixies.

Let's put it this way: Garbage is aptly named.
