I am completely obsessed with the first few minutes of the song De Vlucht by Motek.

I suppose you did not like "Destruction..." production, I liked it, it was different... good different

anyway, more info here 65daysofstatic

I'm very excited, I mean, is my favorite active post-rock band, them and Yndi Halda

and talking of bands I love, "Kollaps Tradixionales" anyone?, c'mon, is Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra (without the Tra-la-la Band this time), amazing album, much more melodic, there are songs that sound almost normal

Yeah, they went for the whole "no fake volume boost" thing with the production on the last one. Oddly though, it seems like they really quieted down the bass in it too. I guess most "modern production" gives a huge bass boost too, so it just seemed weird all around. Still a good album, just a little weird to get used to.

Did I tell you I saw them open for The Cure? They were actually the highlight of that specific show (The Cure's sound guy should have been fired, the mix was terrible). Cure fans seemed to really love them though, they got fairly large amounts of applause, I was quite surprised.

I had no idea they have a live album out. Did it get a North America physical release, or was it UK or Japan only?

Many thanks. I enjoyed quite a few of those tracks.

Collapse Under The Empire sounds like God Is An Astronaut.

And Unlearn was beautiful.

More than 8 tracks though.

yeah, I think it was worldwide, also they released a DVD of the same show


@phanan: you're welcome, I couldn't pick just 8 tracks :P

today I uploaded this one: http://8tracks.com/g_clayton/desesperanza
more ambient/piano, but still with a post-rocky mood

JitB, are you disappointed by the new Album Leaf? I LOVED the last few albums, haven't gotten into this one at all.

This music video is beautiful though:

I kind of like "A Chorus of Storytellers", but isn't that great, not bad either, I'm not hooked

lovely video btw, thanks for sharing

an album that disappointed me was the last Eluvium work, "Smiles", why... WHY?!

I haven't even bothered listening to the new Eluvium, since I assumed it would kill me to hear him ruin this amazing songs with singing. I was actually going to ask you if it was as bad as I assumed it would be, but it sounds like I don't have to ask!

You're right about Album Leaf, it's not a bad album, it's just not nearly as good as the last two, so it seems disappointing in that sense.

First song, In The Distance Fading, is already out and sounds fantastic.
My first thought when I heard In The Distance Fading was "welcome back, All Is Violent, All Is Bright". Given that's quite strongly my favourite GIAA album, I see no flaws here.

And visiting this thread reminds me I still haven't listened to that Misuse album that AtomicBono put me onto. Goddamn, I better get around to that.

I did not know that it would include vocals, it was a surprise, not a good one, his previous work as Matthew Robert Cooper is beautiful, more organic, just him playing piano, amazing, "Smiles" is my personal disappointment of the year so far

if you like Album Leaf maybe you will like Inu, Kyte and Venice is Sinking

When I heard the new Eluvium would have vocals, I was immediately turned off and haven't even bothered to listen to it. Based on your comments, it probably won't happen any time soon.

I do like some of what Kyte has done. Their first self-titled album was good, and then they had that EP out, along with a full album in Japan which was way too bloated. Not sure if there were issues in getting the record out in different parts of the world, but they should have just released a regular album everywhere if it was an option, one that wasn't as long as the one from Japan.

Hopefully the new album that is upcoming will be decent.

I actually wish that more people married lyrics with post rock composition, but most bands that do seem to be built of pure instrumentalists so their attempts at vocals haven't been good. Obviously there's plenty of existing post rock bands that I don't want to see attempt it, but in the future, it would be cool. Mogwai's the closest and when they used to use 'vocals' it was weird spoken word stuff that made about as much sense as their song titles.
