Music Review: Mogwai's Mr. Beast

Mogwai Mr. BeastIf you are not into this band - you should be. Do me a favor, go out, buy this album. Hear it until it can't play anymore, then shred it, grind it and inhale it. Consume this album. Mogwai is a Scottish band that plays "post-apocalyptic" epic instrumental songs with several jingle melodies. This is a video of who these guys are (courtesy of Matador's website. I've been fortunate enough to see these guys perform live and it was........EPIC! So much music is coming out today this is dated and has a lifespan of about 50 listens until it gets old. Mogwai only transforms as it ages into something new. There is so much hidden in the music that as you listen to it over and over - it reforms itself into new movements.

They will be performing at this year's Coachella festival in Indio California. I'll be seeing you out there.
