Mogwai-Rano Pano

I don’t lay claim to knowing everything about Mogwai, but on Tempest’s recommendation a while back, I found out that they’re a rather talented group. Hence, cut me some slack if this review is a little ‘beginner’.

The track above was atmospheric, electronic and like much of the Mr. Beast album, it was very piano-driven. Rano Pano, from the upcoming album Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will, adopts a much gritter, guitar driven backing which seems to have few similarities musically with the aforementioned track/album. It does however retain a strong sense of atmosphere, replacing the serene hopefulness of Auto Rock with jagged edges that suggest stormy imbalance, which is no mean feat when you don’t utilise vocals. Worth a look for the alternative/rock fans.
