This much-loved Scottish quintet are often described as post rockers because of their love of kraut-ish, instrumental workouts; but they're in fact equally beguiled by the minimalism of Erik Satie, Sunn O)))'s monolithic thunderings and Big Black's boiling rage. The fivesome's wordless epics have been lulling, bludgeoning and confounding adventurous music fans since the late ’90s, and they're going strong with a just-released eighth LP, Rave Tapes and a Saturday set at Coachella. The record is a followup to 2011's Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will; and true to its name, the album does get pretty synth-happy in spots. But the die-hards shouldn't worry: There's plenty of the group's trademark slow-burning, post-Slint churn on display here.
