RECORD OF THE MONTH!
AS THE LOVE CONTINUES
On heavy rotation this month is the new album from Mogwai – 'As The Love Continues'. Building on their previous long player 'Every Country’s Sun', it is an album of beauty and poignancy, mixed with a harsh, brooding edge.
Multi layered guitars and effects making a soundscape relevant to the current climate of the lockdown. The new single 'Ritchie Sacramento' showcases a rare foray into vocals, and although they are understated, they bring a freshness to the wall of sound, and yes I love it.
Off kilter song titles intrigue with their meanings, and the slow building rhythms sometimes make for an intense listening experience; I can only imagine the majesty of them in the live setting (hopefully soon).
*I would also have to recommend ZeroZeroZero TV show which Mogwai provide the soundtrack too.
"Ever since I can remember I have wanted to own a record store, and 2 years ago that dream became a reality when I took over West Town Records in Peterborough...
I feel incredibly lucky that I now have the opportunity to fulfil my dream and spend my working day doing what I love. I've met some great people along the way, and had some great discussions... why not come and check us out?"
