Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings


When: Wed., May 14, 8 p.m. 2014

On Mogwai’s eighth studio album Rave Tapes, the band delivers another set of compelling mood-altering, mostly instrumental tunes. Mogwai wrote and recorded Rave Tapes at its own Castle Of Doom studios in Glasgow, Scotland, with producer Paul Savage, who also worked on their 2011 Sub Pop album, Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will. Tracks such as "Remurdered," a song about a guy who was stabbed and left for dead only to escape and then be "remurdered," and “Repelish,” a tune that features a strange spoken word rant about Led Zeppelin, the band successfully incorporates old school synthesizers into the mix. That slight alteration aside, expect the live show to still be deafening. (Niesel)
