music video : Mogwai – Mexican Grand Prix

Tired of the same old “softest-soft-louder-loudest” post-rock formula bands have used ad-nauseam since the press coined the term? Apparently so are Mogwai, and they’re coming back with a vengeance (and a video that may induce seizures) on their latest album Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will and a new video for “Mexican Grand Prix”.  Utilizing a more structured approach (versus their usual moody swamp of guitars that crescendo towards heaven), pulsing electronica, and spinning it all into a mix with vocals and vocoders, Mogwai have turned back the clock to a sound that hearkens back to their early years and proved once again why they are the first and last name of the genre.
