Top100: 2013

Released to coincide with the final episode of French TV thriller 'Les Revenants', Mogwai issue the first EP from their "calmly unsettling" soundtrack to the Canal+ series. We're not familiar with the show but it's producers or synch advisors evidently have top taste when it comes to moody post rock. The group rein in their heavier tendencies for the most, expending all their serious looks and towering riffage in the opening 'Wizard Motor' before trying out more subtle ideas in the tense serenity of 'Soup' or coming across like a Gallic Bohren and Der Club Of Gore on 'The Huts', whilst 'This Messiah Needs Watching' captures them at their most succinctly sublime.
