As The Love Continues was recorded earlier this year with producer Dave Fridmann and features contributions from Nine Inch Nails' Atticus Ross and saxophonist Colin Stetson on Midnight Flit and Pat Stains respectively. The albums arrives 25 years on from the release of the band’s debut single ‘Tuner’/’Lower’.
As The Love Continues was originally planned to be recorded in America, but the pandemic led to a relocation to Worcestershire and with producer Dave Fridmann separated by an ocean but appearing like an Orwellian oppressor. This pandemic necessity was quickly routine, it also bought them a little more time.
Unable to perform the album for the time being, Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite hopes the music can take you from somewhere different to where you are, “unless you are somewhere really amazing and then why are you listening to some weird music like this?”
“Dry Fantasy” is the first single to be taken from the record, a celestial track centred around a reverberating synth repetition, which reaches a state of dreamlike grandeur as guitars and bass drift in and out of the track. The track is accompanied by a video directed by Vaj.Power which draws interspersing images of blossoming flowers with the gnarled surfaces of a distant planet.
This is the classic black vinyl edition - includes MP3 full download code - gatefold sleeve.
