Now available on vinyl for the first time as part of a four LP boxset entitled Slowly Arranged: 2016-2019, or as a double LP along with the other volume of Lightnesses. Out August 19th 2022
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.
Was into Mogwai from the beginning with the pivotal Ten Rapid and 4 Satin, but the last Mogwai LP I bought was Mr Beast in 2006, so plenty new to me here, and lots of catching up to do! On 2018 Live, the last 4 tracks are where I'm at, I just love all of that feedback and distortion. From my collection of their first decade, the epic 20 minute My Father My King is my all time favourite - I have no idea if their releases after 2006 have yielded anything comparable... only one way to find out!...
