There’s a joke about the Scottish post-rock band Mogwai: My favourite Mogwai track is the one that starts quietly and builds up slowly. True to form, the first track on this album does just that, it’s one of my favourite albums of 2021.
As the Love Continues, their tenth studio album, was met with near universal critical and fan acclaim, along a Mercury Prize nomination. It consists of mostly instrumental music. Their music is unique (no one else sounds like them) and is highly enjoyable.
