What’s New & Hot in Music?… Mogwai

Browse & purchase this albumSpecial Moves – Mogwai (US release: 24 Aug 2010)
Mogwai’s first live album entered stores earlier this week. I haven’t been to one of their shows, yet, but it sounds like they’re a tight concert outfit. Other than some applause here & there, one would think you were in the studio. Enjoy!

Mogwai, named after the creatures in the 1984 movie Gremlins, are a Scottish band formed in 1995. Their musical style is usually labeled as post-rock, but the band doesn’t agree with this designation. Their influences include such groups as Pixies, The Cure, MC5, and Slint.
