Mogwai: Get To France

Not long ago, it was announced that the post-rock outfit known as Mogwai is releasing an EP called, Earth Division. The EP’s opening track, “Get To France,” has been circulating via the webscape, so I figured I’d post it as well. From the track, you can get a very comprehensive idea as to where Mogwai is going sound-wise with the EP, which is a four-song foray into classical elements and how they can merge with the electro-enhanced rock sounds mostly found in this year’s, Hardcore Will Never, But You Will. I hate to use the word “departure,” so I’ll instead say “visit” as a means to convey the EP’s incorporation of strings and composition.

A review of Earth Division will be up at No Ripcord very soon. In the meantime, sample “Get To France.”
