This has really become my fav from the last album. Cat Myers was a great temp replacement for Martin.

Saw them open for Pavement in the late 90's. Wasn't ready yet, I guess. Got into them with last album. Binged on their catalog for three months. Dig that song, and the drummer. Real nice fills towards the end

Show tomorrow night at a tiny venue.

Stuart sometimes works the merch table at smaller shows.

I'm usually not a starfucker, but I'm tempted to try to grab a selfie with him. :oops:

Great show tonight.

And great to see Stuart, Barry and the gang pay their proper respects to Mr. Pajo by being in the front row during his set.

Did you get a picture with Stuart? Was Pajo playing under his own name or Papa M?

I chickened out and didn't get a picture with him.

Pajo played under Papa M. It was just him and a guitar. He was fantastic.

Mogwai's sound guy did an incredible job with the tiny venue.

It was nice to have Martin back.

KIN soundtrack out today!

A couple of spins so far.

Initial impression is good, but not spectacular. Favorite tracks are Flee, Donuts, and the title track.

Not as good as Les Revenants and Atomic, but solid.


the kin soundtrack didnt impress me much. not saying its bad, bc i think these guys are too good to make bad music, but it wasn't as good as their other recent work (post the 2nd guitarist leaving).

I just realized that I haven't heard the before the flood soundtrack, I'll give that listen soon.

Hope i see these guys again soon. the last show i saw was amazing:

Mogwai have advanced without a plan since they were teenagers, there have been no secretive meetings to work out the master plan. It is rare to hear a band that has been going for this long, and have this many albums behind them – ten records in and still no disappointments or mistaken creative left turns. You may know what to expect, but you will never get the same. Both transcendent and surprising, As The Love Continues shows that Mogwai are still offering solace from the mundane, supplying the soundtrack to whatever movie you are making in your head. As The Love Continues was originally planned to be recorded in America, but the pandemic led to a relocation to Worcestershire, with producer Dave Fridmann separated by an ocean but appearing like an Orwellian oppressor over the sessions. This pandemic necessity was quickly routine, and it also bought them a little more time. The album features contributions from Atticus Ross (“Midnight Flit”) and Colin Stetson (“Pat Stains”), and will arrive almost exactly 25 years after the release of the Mogwai’s debut single, “Tuner”/”Lower”.

TRACK LISTING
1. To The Bin My Friend, Tonight We Vacate Earth
2. Here We, Here We, Here We Go Forever
3. Dry Fantasy
4. Ritchie Sacramento
5. Drive The Nail
6. Fuck Off Money
7. Ceiling Granny
8. Midnight Flit
9. Pat Stains
10. Supposedly, We Were Nightmares
11. It's What I Want To Do, Mum

As The Love Continues out February 19, 2021

I love Mogwai but I've gotten to a point where their new music is kind of a blur to me. The last one I really *loved* was The Hawk is Howling.

I enjoy this one quite a bit too; "Rano Pano" is a monster. And "Remurdered" on Rave Tapes is fantastic.

None of their stuff is ever bad, not even close, but the newer stuff does kind of blend together for me. Part of it might be the production -- there was a sweet spot in the middle of their career where their records still sounded really natural and dynamic, but enjoyed the benefits of increased fidelity that their earlier recordings didn't have. It seems like the last four or five have all felt kind of sterile and wall-of-sound-y.

I think your production critiques are pretty on point, Kevin. They've had a certain kind of sterility to their recordings for a little while now, and it does affect the longevity of their work a bit, at least for me. Mind you, they can totally overcome that shortcoming when they bring the songwriting at a high level, which I think they did on most of Every Country's Sun.

I'm looking forward to the new album, but "Dry Fantasy" isn't mustering up much enthusiasm, unfortunately. I like some of the synth work, but the rest of it seems too safe and by the numbers. Like, I could pretty much predict the way the drums would go on my first listen. I have confidence that there will be better songs on the record, though.
