After over 25 years in the game, Mogwai are a band that should need no introduction. Yet, perhaps because of their primarily instrumental nature, the Scottish post-rock band only recently received their first chart-topping album with 2021’s As the Love Continues. Hitting No. 1 in the UK Albums Chart this past February, the record builds upon the emotively expansive world-constructing sound they’ve become masters of.

For Live on KEXP, Troy Nelson takes us through a brief history of the band and shares snippets of DJ Morgan’s interview with Stuart Braithwaite about the lockdown-made record before the band plays a kaleidoscopic four-song set.
