Mogwai - Special Moves/Burning
Scottish post-rock legends Mogwai will release their first live album this August 24th. Titled Special Moves, it's accompanied by a live DVD, Burning, directed by Vincent Moon and Nataniel La Souanec. Full pre-order details are available here: http://www.mogwai.co.uk/order/uk/
Mogwai are widely regarded as one of the most amazing live bands around: despite the fact they're predominantly an instrumental act, their music packs a hefty emotional punch, as well as a visceral ferocity that has often seen their sets reach My Bloody Valentine-style levels of white noise. If the upcoming releases can capture some of that raw power, they should be more than worthwhile. Here are some clips of them in action:
And in other news, the band have indicated that a new album may be on the way in early 2011.
