now onto their 7th album, mogwai show no signs of slowing down or any shortage of new ideas to plough. despite kicking off with a track entitled ‘white noise’, the band keep their barrage of screeching guitars to the background, instead letting emotive piano chords lead the proceedings, building into the kind of epic, noisy crescendo we’ve come to love the band for. ‘mexican grand prix’ begins with a pulsing electronic drum-beat & a very new york garage-rock bass line, whereas ‘rano pano’ indulges in some pretty dirty sludge-rock guitar lines contrasted with whimsical electronic synths. album closer ‘you’re lionel richie’ rounds things off perfectly &, in true mogwai fashion, the distortion pedal is stomped, the cymbals begin to crash & all manner of guitar & electronic feedback begins to prevail. “mogwai have recorded some of their finest songs since ‘mr beast’” 8/10 – nme, “still inventive, still challenging themselves & still insanely loud” – rolling stone.
