      Default Simian

      Has anyone heard Chemistry is what we are by Simian? My late good friend Dom heard it at work one day and recommended it to me as sounding a bit like Circulatory System. Although it doesn't reach the gorgeous ethereal heights of their genius, it's really bloody good.

      Agreed - Simian are nowhere near as good as the System. I just felt that the woozy, ethereal atmosphere on some of the songs was evocative of Will and the band.

      Re. Sea and Cake - the new album is disappointing. First few songs are gorgeous, and then it really pales.

      Best thing I've heard recently is the new Mogwai record - beautiful.

      Default the \'c\' in cake

      I also agree on the new Sea and Cake album. I'm a big fan of the Oui record, but the new one sounds dummied down to me.

      Mogwai album is a real grower. The first track is gorgeous and the rest definitely rewards repeated listens. One for sad moods.

      For me, they kinda ruined what was special about them by throwing all that electronic stuff in there.

      I hate to be all nit-picky and crap, but it's Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

      ok, back to regularly scheduled programming.

      Sorry Half-Handed, but I have to leap to Mogwai's defence here - have you heard much of their stuff? They're not the most pleasant people in interview - in fact they come across as thoroughly despicable, hypocritical, narcissistic brutes - but some of their music is simply sublime. I recommend giving them a chance. Their first CD (a compilation of stuff from vinyl) called Ten Rapid is jawdropping.
