Mogwai

Rave Tapes

Samantha Eynon

 

Rave Tapes is Mogwai’s 8th studio album, besides their soundtracks and remixes, and comes nearly 19years after their formation. It is a beautiful, atmospheric album that is instrumental on the whole, with the addition of some vocals on Blues Hour, The Lord is Out of Control and Replelish.Re-murdered is the most synth heavy of the tracks, and is reminiscent of Daft Punk’s Tron Soundtrack, but a bit on the darker side.The album has lots of slow building tension, exploding with fireworks of drums, and hulking guitar riffs.

Sounds like: Explosions in The Sky, This Will Destroy You

Stand out Track: No Medicine For Regret

Rating: 7/10
