Alan Moore's album's great. Download it, is my advice.
What is it, exactly?

It's a spoken word tribute to his mentor.
The music is Mogwai meets Subtle meets John Zorn: sludgy and percussive; at times ambient, electronic, or piano-based; often epic; and, in short, the perfect atmosphere for the gorgeous mutterings of a mad genius

I was hoping for the title--Moore has released several CDs and the like over the years.

Apologies - Unearthling is the title.

New Sera Cahoone single (new album in a few months):


Also, new Arcade Fire (w/Mavis Staples) single:
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Agreed. Mavis' growl isn't as fun as when her voice soars. It has started to grow on me though.
