There’s a damn good reason Glasgow post-rockers Mogwai have been going strong since 1995. Something solid within the band’s foundation has kept their sound – their musicianship – steadfastly evolving 17 years after their debut album. So this year’s Rave Tapes, the follow-up to 2011’s infectious Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will (considered by many to be Mogwai’s best), took some by surprise with its slightly more subdued approach, and perhaps a slightly increased use of electronic instrumentation. But this is hardly a digression from their post-rock roots. Rave Tapes shows a natural progression in their constantly expanding style – as elaborate, dynamic, and finely-crafted as ever.
