Ha, yes. Broadrick is a genius.

Ambient sludge isn't a bad label though. How about shoegaze drone?

Isis are absolute quality. I'm still kicking myself for missing them when they came to Melbourne in February 2007.

Oh well, I'm seeing Explosions In The Sky and Eluvium in a month.

This is really great timing too, as I'd heard good things about Eluvium but only I'd only just started to get into his material when I bought the ticket to the concert. I'm really excited.

Did you read the thread? Just ten posts before yours is a good one by u2popmofo that should be enlightening.

actually I first heard Jesu at an Isis concert, they were opening up for them.

both put on a killer show.. I think Jesu really grabbed my attention that night though. every note literally shook my core- positively spine shaking.

talking about Pelican, "City of Echoes" was so disappointing...

I actually quite liked City Of Echoes. It was interesting to hear them go for a different sort of structure.

c'mon, listen "Australasia" and then "City of Echoes", there is a big difference

I'm ok with taking new directions and risks, but this kind of directions and risks are not my cup of tea

boooooring

Checked out my first Godspeed! You Black Emperor track, Motherfucker = Redeemer Part 2, and I really enjoyed it. I'm a big fan of Explosions in the Sky and Sigur Ros, so it's cool to sort of discover this whole other genre of music.

I just got The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place on vinyl.

Sweet sassy molassey, it sounds more amazing than ever.

I just have it on cd, I bought it in Madrid I think, because here in Mexico nobody knows a thing about post-rock ¬¬

funny, EitS, Mogwai, Tristeza (twice!) have visited Mexico

It was only 11.99, too. 2 LPs even.

I'd highly recommend sending away for the vinyl. It's ever so worth it.
