Out Lines
Conflats

Out Lines is a new band from Kathryn Joseph, James Graham of The Twilight Sad, and producer Marcus Mackay. Their debut Conflats has grown out of conversations with service users of Glasgow community space Platform, giving it a hard-won human weight. These stories are accompanied by dark electronic indie-folk. On Rock Action.

Sacred Paws
Strike A Match

Sacred Paws, the new band name of members of former noise pop group, Golden Grrls, is a pairing of Rachel Aggs and Eilidh Rodgers. “Strike a Match”, the pair’s debut as Sacred Paws, will be released through Glasgow’s Rock Action Records. If you are a fan or Sleater Kinney or The Raincoats you are sure to like this collection of jangly indie pop tracks, released on heavyweight vinyl and CD.

Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert
Cut To Black

After a debut, a Christmas album, and a live album, Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbert are ready to say goodbye. The aptly titled 'Cut To Black' is the last thing the two will ever release (or so they say...). Moffat is still doing his sad sing-talk thing, Hubbert is still doing his stylish acoustic guitar thing. Fair play to them for stopping when the going's good.

Mogwai
Every Country's Sun

There’s not many things in life you can rely upon like Mogwai. Perhaps a really reliable plumber is the best comparison I can make. There they are year in year out to service all your post rock needs and come up with the odd chucklesome song title (check the press release for this year’s entry). This is their 9th album and was recorded in New York with Dave Fridmann. It contains in 56 minutes of their signature sound of post rock elegance and euphoric noise-scapes. Big box set too with demos and all sorts.

Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert
Ghost Stories For Christmas

Who would you rather spend time with in The Most Wonderful Time of the Year than Aidan Moffat? He's bound to be a cheery presence around the table and here hooks up with pal RM Hubbert for an album of Christmas themed songs including a rendition of Mud's 'Lonely This Christmas'. Also contains their version of Yazoo's 'Only You' which is kind of Christmassy after it was covered by the Flying Pickets.

Mogwai
KIN

It's not been too long since the successful Every Country's Sun LP but no resting on laurels for Mogwai as they release their first feature film soundtrack for the upcoming movie KIN (made by the same people who brought you Stranger Things). Though it will appeal to lovers of sci-fi soundtracks, we're promised that Mogwai fans won't be left disappointed.

Rev Magnetic
Versus Universe

How does music that ranges in sound from Abba to Vaughan Williams via My Bloody Valentine grab you? If you like the idea then perhaps you should try Versus Universe by Rev Magnetic. A Mogwai-approved wide ranging mix of sounds from This new Scottish four-piece who feature former Long Fin Killie frontman Luke Sutherland could possibly claim to be the world’s first post-rock-R&B-shoegaze band. On Rock Action.

Sacred Paws
Run Around The Sun

Run Around The Sun is the sophomore album by Scottish indie-pop duo, Sacred Paws. It is the follow-up to their Scottish Album of the Year-winning album Strike A Match. You may have caught their upbeat single 'Brush Your Hair' on 6 Music,which is representative of their sound. If you like bands such as Shopping and Girl Ray, it would be sensible of you to give this a go.

Rev Magnetic
Gloaming

Luke Sutherland, a man who will be known to big Mogwai fans as a key collaborator, here puts his solo material as Rev Magnetic out on Mogwai’s Rock Action label. Gloaming is a single in advance of a debut album, and it sets the stage beautifully, with an incongruous but effective mix of harmonised vocals and bitcrushed guitar noise. 7” single.

Kathryn Joseph
Weight / Cold

Kathryn Joseph’s LP from when i wake the want is stole the show in 2018. An album of stormy singer-songwriter fare capped by Joseph’s extraordinary voice, from when i wake the want is ended the year in more than a few ‘Best Of’ lists. Now album highlight ‘Weight’ is getting a single release. The swelling piano ballad - part Björk, part Mogwai - still sounds potent in isolation. ‘Weight’ comes backed here by the spare, Thom Yorke-esque ‘Cold’.

The Twilight Sad
IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME

A few years ago it seemed like the Twilight Sad had had their day. Despite releasing a string of brilliant records they hadn't really crossed over to the success they deserved. Yet all of a sudden here they are with what could be the biggest album of their career. They've used the opportunity to make some pretty wild punctuation experiments and are very fond of the forward slash. Hopefully this will help their mopey Scottish noise pop get an audience amongst the hoards of people who have seen them support the likes of the Cure and Editors.

Kathryn Joseph
From When I Wake The Want Is

Kathryn Joseph's debut Bones You Have Thrown Me and Blood I've Spilled was a bit of a sad corker winning all kinds of Scottish awards. This is her second record and first for Mogwai's Rock Action imprint. Expect windswept bleak confessionals with a warm heart and quivering delivery that soothe rather than haunt.

Swervedriver
Future Ruins

Actual new album alert from, shoegaze legends Swervedriver....and they've signed to Mogwai's Rock Action imprint for that extra coolness factor. We are told it has all the hallmark hard edged shoegaze with new flicks and tricks for 2018 listeners. Their re-issues have been flying out so time is nigh for their first material since 2015.

Errors
Lease Of Life

Glaswegian "post-electro" trio Errors return with their fifth LP Lease Of Life via Mogwai's Rock Action Records. If the title track is anything to go by, expect a predilection for more arpeggiated synths and plenty of layers, alongside sounds the band haven't previously toyed with until now.

Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert
Here Lies The Body

Look at this all-star cast. Arab Strap's Aidan Moffat teams up with guitar ace RM Hubbert in a super-sized collaboration that also includes guest appearances from Siobhan Wilson (cello/vocals) and Rachels Rachel Grimes on piano. All comes out on Mogwai's Rock Action to keep it all in the Scottish family.  

Mogwai
Rave Tapes

Rave Tapes was Mogwai's eight studio album released initially in 2014. It showcased the band mellowing softly and introducing krautrock and kosmische textures into their elegant post-rock. The album is available as a box set which includes all kinds of ephemera such as a bonus 12" and 7", a Cd and tape,m a book and art prints. More Mogwai than you'll ever need? Not likely.

Mogwai
Central Belters

Something of a motherload here for Mogwai fans: the noisy Scottish group are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a grand, box-set compilation, equal parts favourites and rarities. If you’ve never heard their ‘My Father My King’ before for instance, now’s your chance! Three CDs or a whole six vinyl records! On Rock Action.

Part Chimp
IV

IV is the fourth full length release from much loved noise people Part Chimp. This killer album brings together a much more mature approach than their previous releases. A great blend of impending doom-like guitars and slurring vocals allow for Part Chimp to blossom into a machine of the noise-rock genre. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Sacred Paws
Every Day

Preceding their debut full length album in 2017 Sacred Paws (two members of Golden Grrrls) give us this double A side, which are to be the first two tracks from the album. Bittersweet tracks with earwormingly catchy pop melodies, with an almost steel drum rhythm, and a DIY joy that brings the sense of them playing in your front room.

Mugstar
Magnetic Seasons

Since 2003 Mugstar have been making their distinctive krautrock influenced psychedelic music. They impressed John Peel and collaborated with Can’s Damo Suzuki. On Magnetic Seasons, on double vinyl LP and CD from Rock Action, they capture the heavy instrumental post-rock sound that they’ve developed through energetic live shows.

Xander Harris
California Chrome

Fresh American synth-wizardry from Austin, Texas. Xander Harris knows his electronic history and clearly loves a good John Carpenter soundtrack, and he feeds all his experience into California Chrome, his new full-length on Rock Action. The drum machines are big and the synth melodies are bright: there is much dancing to be done.

Mogwai
Atomic

Mogwai penned Atomic as the soundtrack to Mark Cousin’s documentary Atomic: Living In Dread And Promise which was released summer 2015. The record consists or reworks of the original pieces into an album pieces, and are explorative, electronic, slowed down and krautrock inspired. Atomic is also the first release since becoming a four piece.

De Rosa
Weem

Third album by De Rosa, containing 11 further tracks of their woozy, motoriked indie. They have a touch of gloom to them (see track titles ‘Prelude to Entropic Doom’ and ‘Fauster’), but there’s nowt wrong with that. Released by Mogwai’s Rock Action label, on CD and heavyweight vinyl (which includes a download code).

Les Revenants Soundtrack

Les Revenants was the third soundtrack LP from Scottish post-rock titans Mogwai. It contained thirteen tracks of shorter more subdued material which lacked perhaps the explosive elements of their usual work but had a brooding intensity that perfectly soundtracked the successful TV series. Contains a cover of  Washington Phillips What Are They Doing in Heaven Today? - a rare cover song in the Mogwai canon.

Ten Rapid (Collected Recordings 1996-1997)

If you queued for hours only to miss out on the Record Store Day version of this then now is the time to rejoice. Rock Action have re-pressed Mogwai's early singles collection Ten Rapid. The album shows the nascent band exploring a more spindly but equally creative and wonderfully atmospheric version of their later heavyweight quiet/loud sound and is essential listening if you want to find out where it all began.
