Product Description

Product Description

Mogwai release their stunning soundtrack to the documentary by prolific director, Mark Cousins; Atomic: Living In Dread and Promise which was aired on BBC Four last summer. The soundtrack has been especially re-recorded for release at the band's Castle Of Doom Studios in Glasgow. Guest appearances on the album come from occasional band member Luke Sutherland, Sophie and former The God Machine's Robin Proper-Sheppard and Glasgow composer Robert Newth. Artwork includes images from the film and comes in the form of CD, double gatefold heavy pressed vinyl with download code and digital download. As with their soundtrack to the Zidane documentary, the band will be performing this soundtrack live at dates across the world throughout 2016.

By Big Jim TOP 100 REVIEWER on 1 April 2016
Format: Audio CD
Mogwai have more or less written their own script and have found a formula that rarely deviates from what has gone before. That isn't to say that they are boring or one-dimensional. Far from it. They have developed a unique "mogwai" sound and they pretty mush keep within its parameters, it's just that those parameters are pretty wide. It's no coincidence that they are chosen to do the soundtracks to quirky, intelligent and forward looking films and this one is no exception. The overall feel is more mellow than many of their past works but you know that there will be a crashing crescendo or two along the way. This is a very good soundtrack album by a very good band who have found a productive niche for themselves. It's not as challenging as many past albums but that is no bad thing. You will play this again and again and get new nuances every time you do. A grower

I've forgotten how many albums Mogwai have made, or how many years they've been at this – 20 years, maybe – and yet, every time, their work seems fresh and new. Whilst furrowing in seas of utterly predictable instrumental voyages, “Atomic” is a soundtrack, their third after Zidane and Les Revenants, this time for a BBC documentary about nuclear power and nuclear weapons. Growing up, I was always aware of The Shadow Of The Bomb. At some point people stopped talking about it, but then, it was everywhere, like radioactivity, invisible, untastable, but omnipresent, at all places and all times at once, and I lived in fear of the inevitable Air Attack Warning that ushered in Frankie Goes To Hollywood's biggest hit... and my biggest fear.

Opening with “Ether”, their best individual song in at least a decade, the Mogwai template, of rising instruments to a crescendo, and then a slow, gradual disappear into the ether, is set. It's not exactly music for going out. Or staying in. It's music for thinking. It's music for having a bath to. It's music to find yourself, and lose yourself to. For me, it's also, in this at least, the soundtrack to a permanent state of fear, where there's a nagging sense of doubt, something that you can never step quite out of the shadow of, and here, it is everywhere. The instrumentation takes a darker tone, with subtle electronics pulsing in the background like a John Carpenter soundtrack, that offbeat waltz time that you can't quite like but adds a sense of creeping death (especially on “U-235”).

It's always a pleasure to hear a new Mogwai album and Atomic doesn't disappoint.

It's not easy to explain why I like Mogwai or this album - I just do. They keep on doing what they do so welll - melodic very atmospheric - an excellent album

Another superb album from Mogwai...another awesome soundtrack. Mogwai and soundtrack's are a perfect fit. Sometimes threatening, sometimes moving. Instrumental music at its best.

Bought on strenghth of hearing one song. Disappointed as this is very much a tv soundtrack so in my mind sounds odd without the tv part.
