Scottish five piece Mogwai formed in 1995 and debuted a year later with the single ""Tuner/Lower"", released on their own Rock Action label. They've since gone on to develop their distinctive style of apocalyptic, yet deeply humanised noise across four albums, establishing the transcendentally effective quiet-loud/quiet-loud dynamic as their very own and spawning a generation of imitators. Usually tagged a post-rock band because of their slow-build, instrumental workouts and the neo-classical majesty of their more ambitious songs, Mogwai are rather a bunch of a-rockers, drawn to whatever serves their cause.
Mr Beast is the band's fifth studio album and, as the title suggests, sees them returning to their first, true love - Rock with a capital ""R"".
