Mogwai, Come on Die Young
1999 | Label: Chemikal Underground / PIAS Digital

Matador Records lost the thread for a hot second back in the late '90s, as co-founder Gerard Cosloy wasted his hard-earned bread signing dinner music for robots (Plone, Boards of Canada, Pole). But this Scots space-rock crew kept hope alive. Like then-voguish "electronica," the Mog explored the contours of space and time, drift and absence, but they did it without floating off into the wankosphere. They just added layer upon layer of monstrous tension until… read more »

This is undisputedly their finest album. Paradoxically they didn't play a single song from it on the recent live date I saw. It is definitely works best as complete album, so don't try to go fishing for catchy tracks - you may be missing out. It must be downloaded!

Who Are…Alcest

By Jon Wiederhorn, Contributor

Though he was raised in a vibrant French black metal scene, Alcest frontman Neige outgrew the rage and nihilism of the genre and strived to craft something that's just as powerful but far more beautiful.

Interview: Mogwai

By Andrew Perry, Contributor

During their 15 years together, Mogwai have been revered as the most electrifying instrumental-rock band on the planet, and justifiably so. Emerging from Glasgow's indie scene, just as "post-rock" was wafting over from across the Atlantic, these wild-eyed Scots were, from the off, a far more volatile and often ear-damaging prospect than those vocal-free colleagues Stateside. After self-releasing the inaugural "Tuner"/"Lower" 7-inch, the band unleashed two epochal albums, Mogwai Young Team and Come On Die Young… more »

Behold the Shoes: A Brief History of Shoegaze

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

No, it's not a great name: "shoegazing." Very few artists who've actually played in that style like the term; Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai has called it "a dumb term made up by clueless... idiots... if someone called us shoegazers, I'd be pretty unhappy." The other leading candidate seems to be "dreampop," which is also not quite satisfactory. But we're stuck with those words, because it's undeniable that there's a certain tendency in rock music, especially British… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Mogwai’s much-anticipated second album, Come on Die Young, is a trawl through post-Slint and Sonic Youth territory. Each cut blends into the next, creating the impression of one endless track that teeters between deliberately dreamy crawls and random bursts of noise. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
