And I still need the God is an Astronaut stuff.



Check out that Mono song though, Phanan. I think you'll dig.

its a shame that there wasn't some sort of way for the two of you to SHARE this music with each other

I believe all of God Is An Astronaut's albums are streaming for free on their website via last.fm.

At least, they used to be. Can't tell now because I can't access last.fm at work.

You know it's true, Martha. Try the song out regardless though, I'd happily eat crow on this.

I've listened to a number of God is an Astronaut tracks on Last FM already, enough to know I want the albums. I don't know if they're still there or not either. Elfa, why share when I can buy? I'm singlehandedly trying to save the US economy and the music industry.

Interesting, the "mp3" magically disappeared from the link I posted and know worked because I'd tested it.

You can quickly find the link here:

Temporary Residence Limited

It's the second news story. Click on that and the mp3 link is there in the track list.

I listened to the From Monument to Masses record and hated it. C'est la vie. Still, if I can ever somehow find it in a used bin, on vinyl, it'd be worth picking up. Jesus, that sleeve is beautiful!!!

Also, caught Asobi Seksu (dream-shoegaze) and Resplandor, a few weeks ago. The latter band really knocked me out, and definitely brought the post-rock sound (mixed with dream-pop/shoegaze). I didn't enjoy the record (Pleamar) quite as much as their set (the loudest I've heard since seeing My Bloody Valentine, last year), but I still enjoyed it. Really good stuff. One of the turkeys from Cocteau Twins produced it. It shows. I figure they're worth mentioning, even though it seems likely that people already know who they are...

YouTube - Resplandor - "Sol Océano"

Great song.

God is an Astronaut is definitely an artist to support with actual buying, they're not huge by any means, who knows if we'll even see them in the US again any time soon, their one and only US tour had lots of equipment stolen from them which was pretty bad for them. Their CDs aren't easy to find without a good local record store (like Newbury Comics ), but that's what Amazon is for.

I rather enjoyed it. I listened to the stream that's available online, and liked what I heard. My local music store had the CD for only $9, so I'm tempted to pick it up.

I liked it. Quite a bit akcherly.

Does the rest of the album sound like that?



I have a Tower.com order waiting for payday.

Yeah, more or less. There are even songs I like more than that first track on the album as well.

http://www.temporaryresidence.com/mp...es-in-the-snow

Here's their blurb on the album:

Just in time for their 10-year anniversary, MONO return with their fifth studio album, the absolutely massive Hymn To The Immortal Wind. The music is naturally majestic, with MONO's trademark wall of noise crashing beautifully against the largest chamber orchestra the band has ever enlisted. The instrumentation is vast, incorporating strings, flutes, organ, piano, glockenspiel and tympani into their standard face-melting set-up. While Hymn continues to mine the cinematic drama inherent in all of MONO's music, the dynamic shifts now come more from dark-to-light instead of quiet-to-loud. The maturity to balance these elements so masterfully has become MONO's strongest virtue - save for perhaps their uncanny ability to sound every bit like a plane crashing into a Beethoven concert.
Glad you're enjoying it!




Just to keep everybody updated on upcoming post-rock releases:

We vs. Death has a new album coming out on April 11th called A Black House, A Coloured Home. A couple tracks are up for preview on their website: We vs. Death � News & Shows

Isis' Wavering Radiant drops on April 21st. It's already leaked...I'm not an Isis fan, so I haven't heard it, but the comments I've seen on it have been overwhelmingly positive.

Tortoise is releasing Beacons of Ancestorship on June 23rd, their first full-length in 5 years.

Caspian are also set to put out a new record this year, so I'll be looking out for that one, since the You are the Conductor EP is one of my favorite post-rock recordings.

I found the entire Mono album streaming online. Currently listening to it, and it is indeed beautiful.
