having thus far enjoyed a monumental year, with a sold out world tour and the release of the superb and critically acclaimed 7th studio album, 'hardcore will never die, but you will', mogwai are ready to embark upon another chapter. the band release their 'earth division' ep, which carries four brand new tracks, highlighting a creative departure from the band's trademark cinematic mantra of pulverizing, scorched guitar riffage, into a more re-contextualized domain of hazy electronic distortion, accompanied by spiky wafts of violins, violas, cellos and double bass and jagged keys. 'earth division' discretely demonstrates another side of mogwai's stratospheric level of brilliance with its ever-rotating, hypnotic soundtracks that drift dreamy into force, while adsorbing into the paranormal. the ep is a collaboration of barded guitar distortion and haunting piano, which might offer the listener something different, but it still carries the band's hallmarks.
