Aereogramme My Heart Has a Wish That You Would Not Go
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: Sonic Unyon
Scotland's Aereogramme is one of the few post-Mogwai bands still churning out epic post-rock hits that don't sound like throwaway tracks from Explosions in the Sky, Tortoise, and the like. While at times excessively emotive (see extremely sensitive pop vocals), this album finds the band tempering its submissive side with dense orchestration, a feat not quite realized on 2006's Seclusion or In the Fishtank, their collaboration with Isis. Propelled by dramatic piano scores and layers upon layers of strings, My Heart... is a mature record that focuses more on tone than brutality.
