Boomkat Product Review:
One of the highlights from Scottish post-rockers Mogwai’s new full-length, ‘Mexican Grand Prix’ takes the band’s well worn sound and reinvigorates it with the ghost of Krautrock past. The influence of Neu! and Electralane hover around the track, but this is a Mogwai beast from beginning to end, and should bring a few new listeners to the fold. The gloomy piano-led B-side exclusive ‘Slight Domestic’ is where my money’s at however, showing the band in full-on soundtrack mode, effortlessly facing their instruments off against a near-orchestral backdrop. Tear-inducing stuff, and I’m not sure why it was left off the album!
