I do not get tired of MOGWAI

MOGWAI are definitely one of my favorite bands. They have this unique way of blending soothing almost ambient melodies followed by sudden bursts of sonic chaos.While at times their songs are a bit reflective and spacey, each album definitely has it’s own vibe and are individually unique. However, I must also add that they also have this way of expressing emotion and feeling with each song with minimal to no lyrics.  Not an easy thing to do for this mostly instrumental band.  Many fans argue that their debut album,  Young Team, is their best. I can’t argue that the album is not amazing, but I don’t think it’s their best effort (see Happy Songs for Happy People, Rock Action).

With that said, they have a new live album and DVD about to drop and it looks pretty amazing. A few songs and a preview is below. Enjoy.
