#06 mogwai – the sun smells too loud

i’m probably not the only one to notice that this must be the poppiest mogwai song to date. taken from their forthcoming release the hawk is howling (due 22 september), the sun smells too loud translates the sensory overload of its title to a spiraling track that grows with each listen. unlike other post-rock works that rely heavily on conveying mood and atmosphere, this 7 minute piece thrives instead as a narrative, weaving its way through multiple plots and schemes before ending on a slightly tentative note.

  1. can’t frickin wait for this album. hopefully a Dublin date is announced soon or a trip to belfast shall be in order…

  2. hi roisin, can’t hardly wait myself! don’t get that many gigs here in singapore, but at least mogwai did stop over here for their last tour. hope they come again.

    by the way, love your concert photography!

  3. a huge delay in replying but thanks. :)
    still trying to let the album grow on me. i reckon it would be much better live.
