It's been three years since their last, self-titled, release, but Martin Kennedy and co. have another sublimely relaxing album of windswept landscapey music. Some of it's set to a lazy beat, other parts do without one entirely. Mexicola, as you'd expect from the name, provides a slightly pasta-western guitar feel. They're a bit less Super-8 than Boards of Canada, but no less enjoyable. Like any good retro-modern electronically-influenced album, there's a computer voice hidden away towards the end of one of the tracks (reminding me of tracks like Severed Heads' Sam Loves You. or something). Ghost Dirt recalls (if only slightly) Ashra's The New Age of Earth. You can see the clouds from up here.

I may not (so far) run the kind of blog that posts social conscience linkage - other friends seem to have it covered better than I could manage (yes, I'm aware that's no excuse), but this doesn't mean that I don't care about the State of ThingsTM.
