Hawk aye


IF YOU don't know what to expect from Glaswegian group Mogwai by now, then Mogwai not.
Because if you don't love them by now, you probably never will.
The Hawk Is Howling, the group's sixth studio album, doesn't break their introverted, instrumental, in the dark mould, ranging from slow-burning shoegazers like Local Authority to metal barrages such as Batcat.
And of course, nobody does this sort of thing better than these five Scots, the standard bearers for instrumental post-rock.
Where other acts of their ilk attempt to scream and shout, Mogwai howl – and that is precisely why this LP is completely engrossing for more than an hour.
