Not been hugely fussed on that much they've released recently but “Ritchie Sacramento” is really growing on me. Lovely soaring chorus and this live version is beautiful! Hope the album is just as good.

QUOTE
The title came from a misunderstanding a friend of ours had about how to say Ryuchi Sakamoto. The lyrics were inspired by a story Bob Nastanovich shared about his friend and bandmate David Berman who proclaimed ‘Rise Crystal Spear’ as he threw a shovel at a sports car. The song is dedicated to all the musician friends we’ve lost over the years.”

I think Ritchie Sacarmento is comfortably my favourite song released this year and I love that performance wub.gif I've really liked a couple of their singles from recent projects but I'm not too fussed on them overall, gave a listen to the new album and it's fine but I've never really been interested in listening to that much instrumental post-rock!

Yeah you definitely have to be in the mood for it.

I first heard of them in about 2002 when a remixed version of one of their epic tunes “Summer (Priority Version)” was used as the theme to a (now forgotten) series on UK Play called RE:Brand starring Russell Brand (remember him!) Anyway it was perfect to soundtrack my angsty teenage years.

So I'm very happy that they made #1 in the end, even though I don't quite share the same enthusiasm for the band as I had back then. I thought this was a nice touch too from Ghetts:

Ghetts tweeting about Mogwai is some alternate universe stuff.

I'm not familiar with a lot of Mogwai's stuff - I loved 'Death Is The Road To Awe' with Clint Mansell & Kronos Quartet which popped up in a BJSC spinoff a few years ago though, and I thought 'Dry Fantasy' and 'Ritchie Sacramento' were pretty decent too (the former moreso iirc), should probably check out more from them as instrumental post-rock is normally very much up my alley! It's really refreshing to have something so different hitting #1, and a long time coming for them too.
