Staggeringly prolific musicians, Mogwai have over the past twenty years produced nine studio albums, 13 EPs, two remix albums, two live albums and four compilation albums including 2015's greatest “hits” Central Belters. They’re also established soundtrack titans, sound sculptors behind an impressive spectrum of cinematic releases (both full soundtracks and contributions), including 2016’s Atomic, a Top 20 UK album.
The band’s latest release, Every Country’s Sun, takes two decades of Mogwai's signature, contrasting sounds – towering intensity, pastoral introspection, synth-rock minimalism, DNA-detonating volume – and distills it, beautifully, into 56 concise minutes of gracious elegance, hymnal trance-rock and transcendental euphoria.
Their most transportive album yet, the record builds across eleven tracks, with the final three songs ascending into explosive exorcism, closing with the colossal title track, its searching intensity wooshing towards infinity in a dazzling cosmic crescendo.
