Anyone listened to the new This Is Your Captain Speaking yet?

It's beautiful.

Yeah, they don't exist anywhere. I purchased all mine online from them.

The stuff I've heard sounds really...mellow.

I don't like mellow.

Haven't heard the studio version, but I saw them play it live in full almost a fortnight ago. Great gig - Because Of Ghosts supported and were also pretty good. Seeing them then made up for completely forgetting that they were headlining a gig in mid-October. (There was also some band called Seagull supporting, but the less said about their failed attempt to marry Thom Yorke and post-rock, the better.)

Mellow? Listen to Young Team and then call them mellow.

Haha, I was thinking something similar. But yeah, they do have a number of tracks that could be called mellow, or ones that you may mistakenly think are mellow if you don't wait for the payoff, but all their best stuff seems to shake your ear drums loose. I'll send you a few tracks that I think you'll like, Martha.

The latest album has several songs that do this. I'm thinking u2popmofo will send you Batcat as one of the examples.

I don't know, I mean I love being blown away from sonic booms in Mogwai's music, but their "mellow" music is beautiful, although I wouldn't have really called it mellow to begin with. "Friend of the Night"

I love Mogwai, I think listening to the odd song every now and then can be brilliant - but I couldn't listen to a whole album, like Martha said... just a bit too mellow.

If Mogwai is too "mellow", I don't know how you can listen to any music other than Dillinger Escape Plan without getting bored.
