RIYL: The heavy/aggressive bits of Pillars/Ranges/Coastlands/other single-word plural name bands
This was all written and recorded by one guy. Pretty impressive.
I enjoyed it
A Sudden Burst of Colour - Transgressor/Decoder
The snow has me on a Mogwai kick today, their first few albums/EPs are so damn good. I like their more recent stuff too but it’s hard to beat Young Team.
Absolutely perfect soundtrack to a blizzard. I ran through each Flies are Spies albums while shoveling out, god damn breathtaking
Final Quiet is so good, truly incredible
Japanese art-rock (w/vocals), which has enough overlap with post-rock that you won't dare question me for posting this here.
Hardcore Will Never Die, but You Will also rules. It was the first album of theirs that I heard and White Noise, San Pedro, and You’re Lionel Ritchie are some of my favorite Mogwai tracks.
Outstanding production/mixing too
The Hawk is Howling is where I hopped on so it could be personal affinity for the album but man, when the beginning of I'm Jim Morrison starts through the end (including the 3 bonus tracks) is so so damn good
My only exposure to Mogwai is The Returned score. Which is absolutely incredible.
how are you in this thread and that's your only exposure to them hahaha
Hey Phaynes I’m still a casual post boi hush
I only just started getting into the genre 2 years ago with EitS, Do Make Say Think, and ...and So I Watch
listen to mr. beast!!
I was also late to the Mogwai party. Hardcore was the first album of theirs I got into.
Mogwai is good but I can’t hate on someone for not getting into them. They have definitely had some ups and downs in their career but they will always get respect from me.
Probably my least favorite of the big canonical post rock bands tbh
Ooh, are we sharing our bad post rock opinions?
Every Explosions In The Sky album after The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place is underwhelming.
I don't think most would disagree with that one actually
Eits is underwhelming as a whole
This Will Destroy You is boring.
Oh man. Which of their albums have you listened to?
