    Wish they were playing some dates in the northwest.

    ALCEST - Écailles de lune and Les Discrets - Septembre Et Ses Dernières Pensées have leaked. I'm listening to "Septembre..." now, and I think Fursy might have outdone Neige. Percées De Lumière was on the split, Abysses is a short interlude (read: filler) track, Solar Song is an experimental Slowdive (see what I did there?) into full-on shoegaze, so we're really left with three long epic Alcest songs. They're each amazing in their own right, but don't flow into one cohesive, memorable emotion experience the way Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde did. A completely listenable album, yeah, with three 8+ minute beautiful songs, but...color me slightly disappointed.

    That being said, I still really want to order these:

    And both of them are brilliant. I'll be buying them.

    I think it was almost impossible to top Souvenirs, what an amazing album. The new record is very solid and I'm glad Neige didn't just stick with the same formula and make a similar record. I already have the two vinyl's preordered.
