The Mogwai show was far from ideal, but I did enjoy the new stuff, and it would be hard for me not to fund new Mogwai.

It is kinda funny to compare how dumb the infrastructure of the show is compared to, say the recent clipping show.

Mogwai you had to pay 15 bux for a limited access to an unlisted youtube link which featured stitched together performances of each track of the new album, and a couple classics. Enjoyable as a Mogwai performance, but uh...

Clipping you didn't have to pay anything (but they fundraised midwifery), it was public youtube link that you can still replay, and it was a continuous live performance, featuring a mix of old and new. No doubt the best covid show.

I'm liking the new Mogwai, but when it comes to covid shows, it pales in comparison.

Seems Mogwai heard the complaints, they're re-airing the show for a full week starting today at 8PM GMT. Free if you paid for a ticket already, and they are re-opening sales for those who missed the window.

They also uploaded video of one of my faves from the new album from that performance:

Rewatch of the Mogwai show has been better, I think it's a totally solid album. The bookends to pad it don't feel quite in tune, but they're still solid enough. Like it feels like they had a superb EP, but didn't want to limit it to an EP so padded it a bit to make it a full album. And that padding isn't bad, just doesn't feel as cohesive. Unexpected composition aside, s'all good.

I'm listening to the album now and digging it. It's not my favorite Mogwai album, but it is solid. It's still new Mogwai!

This album felt less like a new Mogwai album and more like an album in which Mogwai was covering other post-rock bands kind of, like 50 Cent used to do with rap music. I canít tell if itís influence, homage, or both

Yeah, it's solid Mogwai, which could be seen as either criticism or praise. I'm thankful.
