Mogwai - Every Country’s Sun album review
Scottish band Mogwai’s ninth, recorded with Flaming Lips man Dave Fridmann
For 20 years now Mogwai have exemplified the post-rock approach that they first heard in groups like Godspeed You! Black Emperor, with their use of space and repetition, and with much of the fine detail embroidered into the fabric of their music rather than worn showily on the outside. In this respect it’s different from a lot of prog both ancient and modern, but achieves a similar net effect in terms of power and scale. The rhythmically restless Old Poisons even finds them wandering across the borderline.
A gale force racket of thrilling power.
