Mogwai – The Hawk Is Howling
LTW ‘Without very much fanfare Mogwai have been consistently releasing great albums and are one of the best bands in the world right now with their crafted instrumental brilliance and stunningly intense live shows…’
Nigel Humberstone : Just how a band can produce such consistently beautiful music, this being their 6th album, with such an independent ethos (perhaps that’s a clue) is beyond me. This is an album that I really look forward to returning to. Standout track, and perhaps my all time favourite, is ‘Scotland’s Shame’ with it’s simple bass line that subtly changes and evolves throughout the 8 minute duration.
