And here we are with everyone's favourite scottish noisemakers with their first single to be taken from their upcomming new album. And... its all very nice and its all very pianoy and its all very Mogwai and its all very 'post rock'. And really thats about it. Well, no thats not it but Mogwai have not progressed very much since their last release. Which in a way was to be expected, which isnt really all that bad. This is by no means a bad song. Its just that it hasnt really done anything for me, maybe in the space of an album it will work better..but what do i know?. Ah well,what about the other three songs on this then?
Fresh Crown is better, again its based around a piano piece, with what sounds like a drum machine and some backwards guitar, something that wouldnt feel out of place on CODY. Nothing much really happens, but in this situaton it certinly feels better than the title track. Finally 1% Of Monster is again another slab of atmospheric Mogwai at their best, and again nothing really happens, its as if they have attempted to get an ambient feel to their sond. Its not bad. Its Mogwai, so it can't be bad. But if the new album is like this.. im afraid im not going to be too impressed. It just feels a bit lazy.
