This was announced a while ago, but I don't recall anyone saying anything about it here.

That's awesome! Hopefully it'll get a North American release, as I'd love to have the DVD.

Yeah, but every song is probably 10 minutes minimum.

Friggin' Mogwai.

Luckily Pitchfork reviewed it today, or I would have missed Special Moves' release tomorrow. It's receiving some solid reviews as well:

Pitchfork: Album Reviews: Mogwai: Special Moves

allmusic ((( Special Moves [CD/DVD] > Overview )))

As an FYI if you're interested, Amazon has the CD / DVD combo on sale for $14.99. It's $30 on Mogwai's site, so the Amazon deal may end up being quite good. It apparently comes with 6 song downloads as well, so it should be quite a bit of music for the price. Looking forward to it.


EDIT: The CD part of Special Moves appears to be streamable here:

Just saw this. That Amazon price is sweet. Out of curiousity I'll have to see what it is going for down at the local store, if they even have it.

I don't think Matator released it, so it could possibly be difficult to find at a shop.

Album was sitting on my doorstep when I got home. It apparently comes with a code for 6 extra songs as downloads (extremely high quality wav files, by the way). These are the bonus tracks:

Yes! I Am A Long Way From Home
Scotland's Shame
New Paths To Helicon Pt 1
Batcat
Thank You Space Expert
The Precipice

Add in the CD of 11 tracks, and DVD of 8, and this is a killer deal for $15 on Amazon! Tracks sound great so far, I'll report back after listening through it all.

This copy of New Paths 1 is absolutely fantastic.

Still about that show being cancelled in '08. I hope the gap between appearances in Boston isn't as big as the last one.

Were it not a live album with no new tracks, Special Moves would absolutely be on my year end list.
