MOGWAI

Earth Division EP

2011-09-05

More (mostly) instrumental rock is what’s to be heard from Mogwai, on the band’s fifth release, “Earth Division”. The band gets a bit experimental here and explores its subdued side. Not that this is experimental rock; it is just a bit more contemplative than is the norm for the Glasgow band. Besides the expected fuzzy guitars, on this release you also get quiet piano and exquisite string arrangements. All in all, a pretty, though almost melancholy release. Rebecca Ruth
