My Latest Novel - Wolves


#1

I found an old copy of Wolves recently and, having not thought about MLN in years, have been playing it constantly over the weekend. A really enjoyable album, an almost perfect blend of folk with a post-rock climax.

Any other appreciation for them on here?


#2

Used to love those guys. Saw them a couple of times in 2006 too, great live band.


#3

Absolutely love that album. Does it still hold up?


#4

Same here. Saw them quite a few times. Great fun live. Thinking of them now, I think of The Luminaire. I miss that venue. What’s the band up to now or have they long disbanded?


#5

Yeah, it doesn’t sound dated at all. Well worth a revisit. It looks like the band are nominally still together, but have slowly faded out of existence. Massive shame.


#6

that is a bad band name


#7

Great debut album from them, I still have a lot of love for Wolves. Their follow up, Deaths and Enterances, had it’s moments but just hold up nearly as well as Wolves.


#8

Fan here for sure, but I’ll disagree with Marwood in that I found Deaths and Entrances to be an awesome step-up. Fantastic album, that I still enjoy.

I liken them to what I first saw them described as initially, Scotland’s answer to Anathallo. They’re sort of Chamber/Folk/Post/Prog in a very cool way.

Some if not all the members have made music under the name “Alphabetical Order Orchestra” https://www.facebook.com/alphabeticalorderorchestra which is quite good as well, although not identical in style. AOO put out 2 eps, 1 in 2014 and 1 in 2015. Recommended to MLN fans certainly.

Thanks. A couple of good tips there. I’d never bothered with Anathallo, but like what I just heard.

Gary of My Latest Novel has a new band, The Albatross (@The_Albatr0ss) which any MLN fan will love…I’d strongly recommend them :+1:t2:
