Every Country’s Sun by Mogwai

Mogwai’s new album Every Country’s Sun was released today.  This isn’t an album review (I might do one later) because I’m just listening to this all the way through for the first time, but I’m so excited about it right now that I had to post something.  This is the best Mogwai has sounded in years.  I’m out of my mind right now; holy shit,  it’s so damn good.  Give it a listen!
