Track Of The Day: Mogwai - 'Remurdered'

Scottish post-rock legends Mogwai return with a fantastic new track which provides us with a small taste of their upcoming 'Rave Tapes' album. Despite the title of the LP, 'Remurdered' doesn't exactly find them in acid house mode, however its hypnotic repetition and the vibe you get from those vintage synths does bring to mind the sort of thing you might have heard if you were at an old warehouse party. 

'Rave Tapes' lands on January 20, and looks set to be the first exciting big release of 2014, something to look forward to indeed. It follows on from their fine 'Les Revenants' soundtrack album and 2011's 'Hardcore Will Never Die', one of their strongest works to date and high up my list of records from that year. The latter was produced by Paul Savage, who also worked with the band on the new LP, which is released on their own Rock Action Records. 

The album will be available on CD, LP, Digital and Ltd edition box set (featuring the LP itself, an exclusive 12", a book of studio photography by iconic photographer Steve Gullick shot during the recording sessions, 3 x 12" x 12" art prints, a 7" and a CD version of the album).
