And I'm not someone who usually tells people what to buy, but if there is one band that needs the support, it's this one. Just reading about how broke they are should be enough to convince people. I'd hate to see them not be able to do this anymore because they couldn't afford it.
So true. I think they also got their equipment stolen at some point in the last few months, if I'm remembering which band it was correctly.

Pelican did, in Rome.

Is God Is an Astronaut a Mogwai-lite band? I've yet to hear anything by them, but I've sorta become jaded on a lot of the lesser post-rock bands, as far too many sorta blend together... Regardless, I respect you opinions enough to want to know more.

No not really, a lot of their material doesn't tend toward the darker angle that Mogwai takes (although some does), and their sound is much more a blend of electronic music and post-rock, so its less the building a wall of sound with regular instrument sounds that Mogwai features (in their actual playing, obvious they have their odd sonic experimental elements thrown in as well), but they do both have similar building bigger and bigger sounds around the repetition of themes/motives. I'm sure there's an influence, but GIAA definitely have their own sound as well, give 'em a try.

Nowhere, including allmusic, has any album reviews.

What would you guys recommend first, one of the past albums or the new one?

I listened to some clips on iTunes, they sound great I hate ALL of you!

Now tell me what is the best to look into first.

"All is Violent, All is Bright" is my favorite, haven't finished listening to the new one, but its much more subdued than their previous material.

All Is Violent, All Is Bright and Far From Refuge.

The new one is incredible as well.

Agreed. The electronic elements are what make their sound stand out a bit more. Also, their songs tend to be more compact, more structured as individual songs instead of long, connecting pieces of music.

They're pretty different from Mogwai, in my opinion. Like others have said, they use a lot more electronic elements than most of the post-rock bands I listen to. I'd say my favorite is "All is Violent, All is Bright," but "Far From Refuge" is really good as well.

I still have to listen to the whole thing in order, but I like what I've heard. Much more mellow than their previous stuff though, good to have some different tone in their catalog though.
