    Seriously? Damn. I actually checked livenation this morning and assumed that when their ticket link came up, it would just go to ticketmaster like the one that's already on-sale. My credit card really needs that extra $5.

    The New Mogwai Album Cover Is Disappointing.
    why waste such an awesome image on a teaser EP featuring an equally silly tracklist and then put THAT on your album? It just doesn't make sense. It's like using up all of your energy during foreplay and then falling asleep when it's time to get down to business.
    from pitchfork. and yeah, I agree. wtf?

    Man, Pitchfork is slow. That album cover has been available to see on the net for a week and a half now.

    But yes, pretty lame cover. I am sure the music will make up for it.

    Do most of you really give a shit about the album cover considering youre probably just listening to it in MP3 format?

    most software has the ability to show artwork now. as do ipods. I'm not sure about other portable devices.

    and even if that wasn't true, I'd still be a little put off by poor artwork. this is the face of your album. nobody can purchase it without seeing the artwork at least once. and if it's seen by each person that buys it, do you really want it to look like shit?

    Yes. iPods allow you to put artwork on them and then use the cover flow function to flip through them by album cover.

    Don't tell me you stare at the cover of the album on your iPod while you listen.
    and dont tell me that youd skip over this album on your iPod just because you disliked the cover.


    Granted, the album cover is important to an album. I personally don't think this album cover is that bad and Id have to see what it looks like with the overall packaging, but since its Mogwai, ill let it pass as I ll get the album anyways.

    I wouldn't skip over this album if the cover showed Perez Hilton giving a high-five to Brett Ratner. I'm just saying - the age of the mp3 hasn't killed album covers. And I DO get a lot of enjoyment out of the cover flow function when I'm changing albums.

    I also agree that the cover is not that bad.

    I don't stare at the cover as I listen. but I do see it each time I select the album or a song from that album. and I wouldn't skip over it because of the cover. hell, I could remove the cover art or select my own if it was that big of a deal. it just feels like, if the cover art isn't any good, they really don't care. it's like printing your resume on toilet paper. does it make you any less qualified for the job? no. but it sure does make a difference.

    I have an iTouch so I damn well make sure my mp3s have album artwork. Yay cover flow. But some covers I'd rather not see, like those above, MGMT, the new Sigur Ros, etc, so I delete them.

    I am sorely tempted to look for ceramic eagles on ebay.

    *Edit: I need some birthday cards to display with them, though. I also need to find a shower bench and some Jesus pictures and I need to fill a glass bowl with years-old candy.

    The Rock Action Spring 2008 Sampler is mostly phenomenal. I should've expected Mogwai to know I'd love it. And off I go to Rock Action Records site to buy some new music.

    DING! Unfortunately, he doesn't seem to have any official releases yet. Remember Remember, Kling Klang, Errors and Part Chimp are all awesome. I could live without Trout and DeSalvo. Oh...and that band....errr...Mogwai...they're awesome.

    I have Part Chimp's first album, if you want it. Just hit me up. Kling Klang and Errors both kick ass as well. I will need to grab their albums.

    Whatever ass. You said you found some great music on the sampler and then mentioned Part Chimp. Made me think you just heard of them.
