Amoeba Review

01/20/2014

Every once in a while, Mogwai releases an album, and the world is reminded of how awesome they are. Rave Tapes, the post-rock band’s eighth album, has all the trademarks of classic Mogwai—scenic, intricate guitarwork; a dedicated, marching rhythm section; and grandiose, elemental crescendos. They tweak the formula here with a bit of analog electronics, on songs like the single “Remurdered,” whose sinsister synth line and muted guitars give it the feel of a vintage horror soundtrack. Just watch out when those drums kick in. That creepiness continues on “Repelish,” a track dense with atmosphere as a voice details the Satanic message allegedly embedded in Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven.” Songs like “Simon Ferocious” and “Deesh” use synthesizers to great effect to bolster Mogwai’s sound, while their classic, more guitar-based sound is the focus of much of the album, as the band tears through songs like “Hexon Bogon.” Rave Tapes nicely sees Mogwai bringing something new to the table while still pleasing their fanbase with some of the most epic guitar music around.
