Sorry to read your father passed dude. That's really tough. What you say about getting solace from SAW II is so true and very close to home for me - only the other day I was telling a friend about how I found it very difficult listening to music during the time my Dad was passing back in 2005. It felt, in a way, disrespectful to engage with anything too upbeat, and then perhaps too indulgent to listen to anything too downbeat or sentimental. So it was Blue Calx that got me through that period, along with Radiohead - "Treefingers".
On that token, Stars of the Lid are an act I've gotten very in to the past few years. Poignant in the extreme, but definitely hugely comforting in the right measures. "Tired Sounds" is an album that's gotten me through some tough times and well worth a goo
I hope you and family are doing ok dude
