Mogwai is an odd one. On one hand they seem to be stuck in a bit of a rut and aren’t really pushing out in new directions. On the other hand nobody else does quietly Scottish melancholia quite so beautifully.
Other stuff I am hoping for in 2017 is a new Slowdive album (plus Ride and the Mary Chain both have new albums out). Jens Lekman, a possible new album from Motorama, the Toothless album, new stuff from Luxembourg Signal and loads more.
I also really really want to see Klangstof live in 2017 and can’t wait for King Creosote.
