Mogwai’s ‘Rave Tapes’ out now!

Another year and another bloody brilliant record by Mogwai! Out today, Rave Tapes is the first studio album from the Glasgow five-piece since 2011’s Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will. Rave Tapes was recorded at the band’s Castle Of Doom studio in Glasgow, by the band with producer Paul Savage (Young Team). Rave Tapes sees Mogwai battering on the door of 2014 with arguably their strongest set yet. Now, all we need is a tour!!!!!!

STEPHEN MALKMUS- AOW on Dig, RRR, 2SER, FBI January 14th 2014 By Aaron

STEPHEN MALKMUS- AOW on Dig, RRR, 2SER, FBI

2014 has barely started  and we have a new album. That’s got to be good news! Stephen Malkmus ‘Wig Out At Jagbags’ is out now. It is getting some exceptional reviews already. Today’s 4 star Guardian review says: “Wig Out at Jagbags is exceedingly comfortable with Malkmus’s feted past as a pop slacker-savant. It’s OK with the idea of having fun, like Pavement did. It seems comfortable, too, with the idea of a late 80s/early 90s revival. There’s even a little Pixies-grunge fusion in a song called Shibboleth, with its Kim Deal-in-Doc Martens bassline and Black Francis guitar squeal.” Also Dig radio, RRR, 2SER and FBI radio have made it ALBUM OF THE WEEK!!!!
