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

Young Team, Mogwai’s first full-length album fulfills the promise of their early singles and EPs, offering a complex, intertwining set of crawling instrumentals, shimmering soundscapes, and shards of noise. Picking up where Ten Rapid left off, Mogwai use the sheer length of an album to their advantage, recording a series of songs that meld together — it’s easy to forget where one song begins and the other ends. The record itself takes its time to begin, as the sound of chiming processed guitars and murmured sampled vocals floats to the surface. Throughout the album, the sound of the band keeps shifting, and it’s not just through explosions of noise — Mogwai isn’t merely jamming, they have a planned vision, subtly texturing their music with small, telling details. When the epic “Mogwai Fears Satan” draws the album to a close, it becomes clear that the band has expanded the horizons of post-rock, creating a record of sonic invention and emotional force that sounds unlike anything their guitar-based contemporaries have created. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
