Lab Overview

Scottish post rock masters Mogwai return with one of their greatest works to date. Atomic was originally released as the soundtrack to Mark Cousins' BBC documentary Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise. The dystopian sci-fi nature of the subject matter fits with Mogwai's music perfectly. One tends to think of post rock as a soundtrack to the future, but the 20th century is filled with plenty of events that fit the drama of the music. This is not the first soundtrack the band have handled, but it might be the most expertly executed. Although they never quite put down their guitars, synthesizers are used much more than on any previous release. Those keyboards provide plenty of tension and allow Mogwai to expand their sound, as well. "SCRAM" is filled with foreboding sirens, while both "Ether" and "Are You A Dancer?" provide some light amongst the darker moments. Ten tracks in all. Released by Temporary Residence Limited on double vinyl with a download code.
