It's normally clichéd to describe mostly instrumental post-rock bands as the creators of imaginary soundtracks, except Mogwai make it unavoidable. In addition to their proper studio albums, the Glasgow outfit has scored films, like the experimental documentary Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait and (with Clint Mansell) Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain. Mogwai's new album, Every Country's Sun, is of a piece with those works, as Stuart Braithwaite, Dominic Aitchison, Barry Burns, and Martin Bulloch conjure up the kind of atmospherics associated with Nordic noirs in which moments of tension give way to pastoral interludes and even a Moody-Blues-meets-Mercury-Rev-like vocal number.
