Mogwai, Xander Harris


Roseland Northwest
Thu., Nov. 23, 8 p.m. 2017 All Ages


Mogwai takes its name from the 1984 horror-comedy Gremlins, and the ’80s and ’90s influences don’t stop there. The four-piece formed in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1995, and still plays post-rock distinctly of that era. These days they’ve been dabbling outside of the typical album release cycle—between 2011’s Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will and 2014’s Rave Tapes, the band scored the haunting French TV drama Les Revenants and the British documentary Atomic, Living in Dread and Promise. They also collaborated with Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor on the soundtrack of Before the Flood, a documentary about climate change. With their new record, Every Country’s Sun, Mogwai proves they’re still masters of dazed sonics, but it also includes a rare vocal track from the band, “Party in the Dark.” It’s a rousing break from their atmospheric instrumentals, but those will definitely help if you need some escapism this Thanksgiving.
