Rock Action's Mum Gets The Stan Winston's

Mogwai's label Rock Action Records have some of the most interesting UK acts - Part Chimp, Errors, and Desalvo number in their small ranks. Glaswegians Remember Remember are an act that sit apart from the musical stylings of their brethren, but due to their ebullient aural histrionics seem a snug fit here. Their influences are many and varied - from more obvious namechecks such as minimalist scorers Phillip Glass, Yann Tiersen and Max Richter, to Icelandic sorcerers Mum and Sigur Ros, to more sonically abrasive artists such as Nirvana and Sonic Youth (?), therefore RR's sonic palette is always busy and never dull. They are preparing to launch RR Scorpii at us soon, but in the meantime check out this short film that highlights a track from last year's enticing debut, 'Imagining Things'. It seems almost cartoonish, but as this is from Mogwai's stable, prepare for something decidedly left of centre to lurk in the shadows. (The film is by Gregor Bradley - and just a heads up, this is slightly NSFW...)
