Mogwai – Hardcore Will Never Die But You Will (Rock Action)

mp3: Mogwai – Rano Pano

Mogwai still do the quiet / loud, soaring noise thing better than anyone, but nowadays they do so much more. As with their last few albums, there are shifts and developments. Vocals are still cropping up, there’s an almost Stereolab-style motorik groove to Mexican Grand Prix. The palette’s getting more varied but the key strengths are intact. In fact, as an album per se (rather than a collection of amazing tracks padded out with some dicking about), this might actually be their best. As a drunk Glaswegian once said to me at a Mogwai show, “this is what heaven sounds like, big man”.
