Mogwai return with their ninth studio album, recorded with renowned producer Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips, Mogwais Come On Die Young and Rock Action) at his Tarbox Road Studios in New York State.
Every Countrys Sun, named after a friends lack of knowledge in how the universe works, takes two decades of Mogwais signature contrasting sounds and distils it, beautifully, into 56 concise minutes of gracious elegance, hymnal trance-rock and transcendental euphoria. It will definitely appeal to fans of the band and will gain many new ones along the way.
The band recently performed their new album in its entirety for the first time in a triumphant surprise show at this years Primavera Sound, Barcelona. In a live review, The Quietus wrote: ... the material bounds with purpose and spirit, depth and intelligence, quiet triumph and (particularly toward the end) emphatic weight, promising a record of cleverly-woven instrumentalism that slays and sates in remarkable unison.
