Post-rock pioneers mellow

By DERON JOHNSON - Sun-Gazette Correspondent (Music Revew:?Mogwai, ‘Rave Tapes’) , Williamsport Sun-Gazette

Rave Tapes" is the eighth studio album by Scottish band Mogwai, a group that heavily influenced the development of post-rock, a genre of instrumental music featuring long, slow development of repeated material using typical rock instrumentation. You've probably heard this music before through bands like Explosions in the Sky, who wrote the soundtrack to the "Friday Night Lights" movie and television show. Due to its use in these contexts post-rock is often viewed as background music, and despite having composed a few movie scores, Mogwai is a band that wants to avoid categorization.
