Scottish post-rock band Mogwai’s eleventh album, As The Love Continues, stands testament to their ability to fire the synapses and pump atmosphere directly into the brain. They haven’t the reliance on lyrics that many have; no care for trends or Tweets. This is their niche, this is their sound, and the undulating rhythms, riffs and percussion of As The Love Continues is unequivocally Mogwai.

The album itself is consistently strong, however the warming fluidity of Ritchie Sacramento and melodic synth depth of recent single Dry Fantasy are as good as any. Whether you’re looking for the soundtrack to your next TED Talk or late-night study session, Mogwai might just have the answer.
