Compressing their emotional power and enthusiasm into tight, five-minute pieces
2014 | Label: Rock Action Records / PIAS Digital

Twenty years into their career, Scottish five-piece Mogwai have become masters at tugging heart strings and manipulating emotions with nothing more than a single chord change or well-timed drum hit. They’ve experimented with sprawl in all its forms, from film soundtracks to droning, 30-minute song lengths, but on Rave Tapes they compress their emotional power and enthusiasm into tight, five-minute pieces.

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.
