latimesblogs.latimes.com:

If Mogwai hadn’t been inching toward experimental metal before, it is now. There still are uplifting hints of indie slow pop lurking around its seventh studio album, “Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will,” the sort of requisite sounds one hears when watching TV dramas about football-playing teenagers in Texas or Prius commercials directed during the Obama campaign, but there are also brief glimpses of ’70s sludge — and it is refreshingly wonderful. As an instrumental band, it would only make sense that Mogwai would arrive here eventually. There is only so much strumming and twinkling an outfit can do before its needs to axe it up or fuzz it out.
