This is 'Lightnesses II'. A companion piece to 'Lightnesses', which was released earlier in 2017.
This volume is darker in tone than the major keys of the first volume. A sense of a resolution that never quite arrives.
I'd been keeping these aside for a release intended much further in the future, but very recently I found myself needing to revist the space these tracks put me in. It induced a sense of calm and warmth in me that I felt others could benefit from as the days in the northern hemisphere become colder.
Thanks for your support in 2017. Stay tuned for a new full length album at some point next year.
Mogwai, best band ever, known them since young team times and impressed with every album so far.
Seen them 3(?) times live in 3 different countries and missed them in pukkelpop in 1998. This set gives me the chills and reminds me of the gig at the Sse hydro in Glasgow. Don’t believe the Fife, Helicon 1 , Rano pano and Every country’s sun are my favourites. Mogwai gave a new meaning to loud, this goes through your spine and makes you smile (with pain later). jsheaven
