|Mogwai – Rave Tapes (2014)|
The highly prolific post-rock outfit of Mogwai has done it again with another high scoring album true to their standard. My last contact with the band was with their great Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will.
Rave Tapes proves once again that post-rock doesn’t have to be inaccessible or too far from mainstream. With great melodies and a nice approach to different kinds of ambiances, Rave Tapes is almost 60 minutes long that travels in the listener’s ears with nice ease but also without much incongruity. There’s a nice blend of atmospheres and despite the fact that Mogwai is almost entirely an instrumental band, their music speaks with moods, and phases.
This is another nice soundtrack for 2014 from Mogwai. A potential top 10 of the year for the writer of those lines.
