Another Post About The Hawk Is Howling

I swear, you'd think I was officially affiliated with the band (Mogwai), based on the number of posts I put up about them, but Barry just posted a little humorous update on the bands official website about their new album. You can read it in it's entirety below:

Nearly Done!
Good day. We are almost finished mixing our howling hawk of a new record and we're so pleased with it that we might never release it and instead just put it on our own iPod shuffles and walk the streets of Glasgow, never speaking, Syd-Barrett-style forever.

It's got it all, dreamy ballads about forbidden love gone awry, one minute pointless instrumentals and even some spoken word about the future of the music industry in India. If and when you allow yourself to hear these bitching jams you're going to want to buy some seriously good crystal meth just to take the edge off.

You know how Radiohead let their album be downloaded for free? Well, our very own John Cummings had his own method of doing this when he left his new mogwai-new-album-containing laptop in Nice n Sleazies by accident the other night. Don't worry, it's all fine.

Okay, just a wee update. I hope you are all well.
