Mogwai – The Hawk Is Howling

September 14, 2008

Today is the first really bad rainy day, so is it a coincidence that I found and downloaded a new album by Mogwai? Scotland’s finest post-rock beasts have spit out another series of waves of brilliant instrumentalism. Just another or… no. It seems that they’ve combined all the dynamics, bass melody, sharp noise and dreadful peace they’re capable of making and made one wonderful album. The feeling I got reminds me of the first times that I’ve heard them. Rock Action and Young Team. The titles are still perfectly appropriate as well: I’m Jim Morrison, I’m Dead, Thank You Space Expert

    We do appreciate that you are fans of / are promoting Mogwai, but the labels and artist would greatly appreciate your co-operation in removing your links to the pirate files in question.

    Many thanks for respecting the artist’s wishes and, if you want good quality, non-pirated, preview tracks, then full-length versions of “The Sun Smells Too Loud” and other, exclusive previews are available for fans and bloggers to post / host / share etc in the run-up to release at … .. do also check-out and for news and info on the new album and the band’s 2008 shows.

    As you will appreciate, this e-mail is written on a without prejudice basis and, as such, all of our clients’ accumulated, worldwide rights and remedies remain strictly reserved : please excuse this required formality which, hopefully, we’ll soon be able to dispense with.
