Aidan Moffat And RM Hubbert

What The Night Bestows US

    Recorded live in November 2018 on a 5-date tour of England, the album features new and intimate stripped-back arrangements of album tracks as Aidan & Hubby are joined for the first time by violinist and vocalist Jenny Reeve. It also includes completely reworked versions of Party On and Wolves of the Wood, the latter being a particular highlight for the band: "As we walked on stage, we decided to ask the audience in Oxford to join us for the new version of Wolves and howl as best they could all through the song – they were brilliant and it turned out lovely, and it's probably my favourite track of ours we've ever released," says Aidan. There's also a cover of Rosalie Allen's post-war anti-fascist song Hitler Lives, while the album ends with Car Song, the first track the duo wrote together back in 2012. Available on heavyweight clear vinyl with download code.

    Mogwai

    Ten Rapid (Collected Recordings 1996-1997)

      THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2018 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

      Ltd coloured vinyl repress of long out of print collection of Mogwai singles, b-sides and rarities.

      Rave Tapes is the eighth studio album by Mogwai and their second on Rock Action, the label they set up almost 18 years ago to issue their debut 7" single, Tuner/Lower. In between, the Scottish quintet have established themselves on the international stage through a prolific recorded output and a commitment to touring that few of their peers can match.

      Clocking in at just under 50 minutes, the 10-track album is a lustrous collection mined from the same quarry as its predecessors, wreathed in painterly textures underpinned by increasingly electronic beats. The haunted strains of Deesh channel the slow-burning ecstasy of their 2006 song “Auto Rock” (a key presence in the denouement of Michael Mann’s film of Miami Vice that year) while the guitars on which Mogwai built their reputation remain, if for the most part less overtly belligerent this time round, as evidenced by the somnambulant opener “Heard About You Last Night” and the sonic scowl of “Hexon Bogon”. With Rave Tapes, Mogwai’s mastery of sound and space is firmly at its apex.


      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: Mogwai, Veteran post-rockers and noise merchants ramp it up in this latest iteration, with synths! Pulsing, brooding and mysterious, and juxtaposed with their trademark melodic highs. Groovy, imaginative, and downright brilliant. Post-rock for the 21st century.
