New Mogwai EP w/ Roky Erickson

free tibet

Recommended Posts

With their classic debut all fancily reissued and available for the purchase, Mogwai have recast their gaze towards the future. Their new LP, The Hawk Is Howling, is due September 22 in the UK and September 23 in the U.S. on Matador, and just a few weeks before its release, the post-rock vets will issue a very cool-sounding EP with a little help from a bona fide psych icon. (Via NME.com, confirmed by Matador.)

The Batcat EP begins with a pair of non-album cuts: there's "Batcat", of course, plus the unfortunately titled "Stupid Prick Gets Chased by the Police and Loses His Slut Girlfriend". But it's the closer, "Devil Rides", that really fascinates, as it sports vocal contributions from freakout legend/13th Floor Elevators frontman Roky Erickson. It's due on CD, 12" and digitally September 8 in the UK and on 12" and digitally (not on CD) September 9 in the U.S.

just listened to this & its jolly good :up:

Still resisted the temptation to steal the album...

Bought the Batcat ep earlier and about to give it its first spin. 5 weeks (i think) till the Edinburgh gig and drunken adventures.

Which also means it's less than 5 weeks till Scotland v. Norway, This Will Destroy You in Glasgow and 2 weeks school holiday :love:
