"Rave Tapes" - Mogwai [Official Album Stream & Tour Dates]

Glasgow's Mogwai have just begun streaming their album Rave Tapes ahead of its January 21st release date. Check it out above, via Spotify.

At first listen, Rave Tapes is a dark, brooding epic that blends shoegaze sonics with post-rock's vast scope. As is the case with most Mogwai albums, it is largely devoid of human voices, save for the forlorn singing on "Blues Hour" and some spoken word on "Repelish." Instead, the band uses a deft blend of rock and electronic instruments to populate the record's sound, creating loping soundscapes that subtly evolve with time. It's an immersive, emotionally manipulative listen, reminding everyone why Mogwai have scored so many films. Call it mood music for the apocalypse, or crescendo porn, or whatever, but Rave Tapes will make your nape hair erect, guaranteed.
