Mogwai - As The Love Continues
CD and Yellow Vinyl out now. Black vinyl delayed til the 26th. 3LP+book delayed until 5/7/21.
Both transcendent and surprising, "As The Love Continues" shows that Mogwai are still offering solace from the mundane, supplying the soundtrack to whatever movie you are making in your head. "As The Love Continues" was originally planned to be recorded in America, but the pandemic led to a relocation to Worcestershire, with producer Dave Fridmann separated by an ocean but appearing like an Orwellian oppressor over the sessions. This pandemic necessity was quickly routine, and it also bought them a little more time. The album features contributions from Atticus Ross ("Midnight Flit") and Colin Stetson ("Pat Stains"), and will arrive almost exactly 25 years after the release of the Mogwai’s debut single, "Tuner"/"Lower". Unable to perform the album for the time being, Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite hopes the music can take you from somewhere different to where you are, "unless you are somewhere really amazing and then why are you listening to some weird music like this?"
