Mogwai's second album is slower, more brooding, almost droning though it doesn't. It's like a day when you gotta just shut the curtains, put out the lights, hide away, not asleep, but apart as possible. Even in a pandemic . . .

Anyone listening to this show over the time know that I love me some Zorn. Here's some online description of this wonderful new record: featuring "the three acoustic guitars of Bill Frisell, Gyan Riley and Julian Lage, 'Virtue' is inspired by Julian of Norwich, one of the founders of Christian mysticism, portrayed through twelve succinct Zorn compositions of beautifully lyrical contrapuntal interplay and transcendental reflection."
Even if you knew none of that, you'll love this album! Lose yourself from these days of rage & sickness, just for a little while.
