    You Coachella-ites seem like nice people, so I'm gonna risk looking like the uninformed idiot I am and say... What kinda rock band doesn't have a singer?

    Not saying they're not great musicians, they clearly can play like no one's business, but the job of a singer is to give the audience someone specific to project onto and focus on. I donno what to make of this. I'm not sure who I'm supposed to be paying attention to.

    Please don't eat me, I'm here on this board because I wanna learn. Teach me, oh wise ones!

    Mogwai come from a loosely associated genre of music dubbed "post-rock" that very infrequently highlights singers, and if there is a singer, they are usuall pushed way back in the mix. A lot of the time it is actually specifically to cause what you are describing - the band doesn't want all the attention focused on one main source (the singer) but instead on the overall sound, feel, movement of the music. That's why many of the songs are so long...
    Think of it as a cross between classical and popular music

    Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Explosions in the Sky, Tortoise, etc.

    The new track is definitely missing the usual Mogwai build up that kicks you right in the balls. Still good though.

    New Mogwai song "Batcat" here - listen to the Wednesday show ("White Denim"). Skip ahead to 28:37 if you want to hear!!!!



    Edit: This song is fucking SICK. Like a more sprawling version of "Glasgow Mega-Snake".

    Thank you very much, Gabriel! This is pretty damn good - I like it better than the megasnake, but I like The Sun Smells Too Loud and Dracula Family heaps better.
