Mogwai/Rock Action Records – Errors ‘New Relics’ VHS

The band are releasing a visual accompaniment on VHS – a format that, in itself, is a recent relic in the technological race to thebottom. Each video is made by a different visual artist, ranging from recent film graduates to more established artists, including Rachel Maclean (who created Errors’ ‘Pleasure Palace’ video.) Each artist was just given an audio track, with no information – not even the song title – and were asked to respond to them. Film takes more of an abstract influence on the album too; the group were watching a lot ofAlfred Hitchcock’s works during recording, and draw parallels to the uneasy structures of his pieces with their own lingering time-shiftingtendencies. Tying it all in the album’s sleeve art was specially commissioned by Glasgow graphic designer Gabriella Marcella DiTano.
