Rock Action

An interview with Mogwai frontman Stuart Braithwaite

By Jessica Cassyle Carr

Glasgow's Mogwai has been hypnotizing its audiences with elaborate, spaced-out, guitar-driven dirges since the mid-'90s. This week, on tour in support of its wryly titled 2011 Sub Pop release Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will, the cosmic post rock band pays New Mexico a visit. Over the phone, the band's thickly accented frontman Stuart Braithwaite and I discussed recording techniques, favorite concert locales and distortion pedals.

Shoulder Voices on Shoulder Voices

By Captain America

Shoulder Voices is just that. An angel on one side, a devil on the other, murmuring in your ear. And it’s difficult to tell which is offering temptation and which is advising caution.

Music includes Jakob Insane, Vertigo Venus, Sons of Gray, Domestic Violence, Beke Dragoste, 15 Polk St., Slik 50 and even karaoke. This is your lucky day. (Captain America)
