Pleasing fans of Godspeed You Black Emperor! and Wire, alike is no small task; those bands are polar opposites in the post-rock sphere, representing the mainstream and the hardcore respectively. This longtime Scottish post-rock quintet has found devotees on both sides of the pit by joining sonic epics with a melodic sense.  If you like your music vocal-less with long instrumental guitar-and-bass jams, Mogwai is offering up their latest single “San Pedro” from the forthcoming, and awesomely titled Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will released on February 15 via Sub Pop.
