Mogwai to Play Urbanscapes Satellite Show

FB-Mogwai - Copy

Urbanscapes, Malaysia’s month-long creative arts festival, confirmed that Mogwai will play Urbanscapes satellite show on Nov 30 at KL Live.

The Scottish post-rock band Mogwai (“Take Me Somewhere Nice”) often championed by the late John Peel of BBC Radio will take their brand of shoegazing, instrumental metal renditions to Urbanscapes’ Satellite Show this year. With a repertoire that contains tracks from the soundtrack for film The Fountain and French TV series, Les Revenants, and “Rave Tapes” which became UK’s best selling vinyl album this year — Mogwai will offer a chilling, ethereal set that will chill the bones and sway the crowd.

As previously announced, on Dec 6, festival-goers can look forward to soak in the anthemic sounds of the Los Angeles-based indie rock band Local Natives (“Gorilla Manor”, “Heavy Feet”) that Pitchfork described as a “sort of West Coast ‘Grizzly Bear’ [the band]”. Playing alongside them will be the legendary American college rock outfit The Lemonheads (“It’s a Shame About Ray”) whose cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Mrs Robinson” paved a way to a breakthrough in their salad days.

Scottish synthpop band Chvrches (“Recover”, “Lies”), whose track “The Mother We Share” was featured in the opening video for the 2014 Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony in Glasgow, Scotland this year. The trio will perform at 7 pm, Nov 19 at KL Live. American comedy rock duo Tenacious D (“Tribute”, “Wonderboy“), featuring actors/musicians Jack Black and Kyle Gass will play Urbanscapes’ second Satellite Show on Dec 1 at KL Live.
