So, I saw Sleepmakeswaves play their first headlining gig last night. Tiny club in Melbourne, can't have been 150 people there. Hell, there were more people at a pub last week when I saw the Aussie U2 Show. Deserved a much better turnout.

It was fucking fantastic stuff. I Will Write Peace On Your Wings was excellent. They did a couple of new songs that were quality and I can't wait for them to be recorded in studio. The closer was One Day You Will Teach Me To Let Go Of Your Fears, complete with Tim Charles from Ne Obliviscaris on violin. Awesome. Just wish they'd played longer!

One of the openers, A State Of Flux, were pretty sweet too (though not post-rock); I picked up their EP.

I'm listening to them now 'cause that's a really cool band name ... They have quite an interesting sound. I think I like it.

Anybody bothered listening to the new Califone record? Typically, predictably great.

I'm only on the second track, and I already have a music boner.

I like it, but I think I prefer Station.

It's a great album, glad I picked it up based on youz guyz'z recommendation. Been a slow year for post-rock for me, outside of this and Mono's new album, i don't think I've picked anything else up.

Me too. Geneva is a phenomenal album and one of my favourites of 2009, but it's going to take a lot to top Station for me.

Agreed. No slight on Geneva; I'm not saying it's no good. It's actually quite excellent.

But Station was a killer of an album.

Apparently Popmatters loves the new Pelican album:

I saw that earlier.

Big change from the last album, that's for sure.
