Mogwai have premiered the official video for their track “Teenage Exorcists” from their forthcoming EP, Music Industry 3. Fitness Industry 1, which will be released on December 1st. The clip, which was directed by Craig Murray, is highly elaborate, trippy and very visually stunning. I can’t fully describe the video eloquently, so I will say just watch it for yourself after the break.

As far as instrumental rock is concerned, Scotland’s Mogwai have always been in the upper echelon. The band’s continuing stylistic evolution helps them distance themselves from your average post-rock categorized band. Album after album, Mogwai add something new to their musical repertoire and create a full length that is alien and familiar at the same time. 2011’s Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will represented yet another new chapter for the band. Compared to 2008’s The Hawk is Howling, the instrumentation was more on the subdued side, but without sacrificing any of the band’s lavish songwriting. The bursts of heavy guitar mastery were replaced, for the most part, by bright selections of melody and driving, alternative rock rhythms. It was a little different but something you would expect to hear Mogwai do. With this year’s Rave Tapes, the band takes a step in a slightly new direction. Forget what you heard on Hardcore Will Never Die, because Rave Tapes is a new animal all together.
Scotland’s masters of instrumental rock, Mogwai, will release their new album Rave Tapes next week on January 20th. But do you really want to wait that long? Hell no.

It’s always somewhat of a mixed blessing when you start getting into a band only to find out that they are no longer active; especially when that band is as good as this one. I am referring to a band I literally got into just yesterday, Teith. Teith were an experimental and instrumental rock band whose roster notably includes Trevor de Brauw of Pelican. The band posthumously released their first and last full length record, Humboldt Park, yesterday and after jamming it a couple of times the anxious desire to hear more crept up inside me. Teith were onto something very promising with their unique sound and Humboldt Park can attest to that.
