If I love "the Valleys" by Electrelane what else would I love?

It reminds me of "Age of Aquarius" by Fifth Dimension.

Ah, lovely lovely Fifth Dimension.. I do love them as well as The Valleys, so good call. But not the Aquarius song, which is just plain horrid. I think Wedding Bell Blues is my favourite. I also like the fact that they have a song called Too Poor To Die - although it's also too poor to play.

Anyway, enough of them, because we were talking about Electrelane - or rather, we were trying not to, because The Valleys makes me much more inclined to buy a Chicago A Capella album than another one by them.

Some interesting suggestions here - thanks. Will report back. iLiKETRAiNS first, I think. Then Gy├Ârgy Ligeti.

There's really nothing else quite like it, and nothing else this band ever released matches it. Or almost any other band, really.

agree completely. they're a great band, and it's a great record overall, by far their best, but that song is just...THAT SONG. once in a lifetime thing.

3 months pass...

Everytime I listen to Electrelane, I really question why I need to listen to anything else. ever.

especially this song.

This is the closest thing I can think of as an equivalent http://www.souljazzrecords.co.uk/releases/?id=16415
