Coming To Your Local Bandstand: Mogwai

Scottish post-rock dynamo Mogwai hits U.S. shores next week to support the March 7 release of the act's new skull-crushing Matador release Mr. Beast. The 11-year-old quintet's latest record, its fifth full-length, is "only about 25 percent" noise, according to some musings of guitarist and vocalist Stuart Braithwaite posted at the Matador web site. In the event you've been sleeping on this one, head over to the Matador MP3 page and check out "Folk Death 95," a track from Mr. Beast. To get the kids pumped up Mogwai Monday released a new digital single, a live version of "Glasgow Mega-Snake," recorded in London in January. You can snatch it at places like ITunes.
