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. Drawing on his classical guitar training and his love for Celtic melodies and soundtrack composers, he developed Alcest, following the raw 2001 black metal-based demo Tristesse Hivernale with the 2005 EP Le Secret (which was recently re-recorded), which began with… more »


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

Originally offered on Eye-Q Records, this disc was also packaged together with another Eye-Q release, Mogwai Fear Satin Remixes, and distributed through Jetset. Like the band that inspires them, the DJs and producers at work on Kicking a Dead Pig: Mogwai Songs Remixed go to both noisy and gentle extremes as they infiltrate their Young Team-era cuts. Things get kicked off on the softer side as mostly mellow mixes of “Like Herod” (Hood) and “Helicon 2″ (Max Tundra) present a breezy, meditative soundscape. This pattern holds for the most part as the remaining cuts overlay hip-hop, techno, and other dance-oriented beats onto generally mellow Mogwai tracks, with the chaotic Alec Empire’s Face the Future remix of “Like Herod” being the noisy exception. While there are some decidedly uninspired white-noise explosions, there is also enough interesting material on Kicking a Dead Pig: Mogwai Songs Remixed to interest devoted fans. New listeners should probably avoid this compilation, however, as Mogwai’s trademark subtlety of texture and performance dynamics are aggressively (and in some cases destructively) modified on this release. – Vincent Jeffries
