It is just over five minutes long and it is just as good as you have been hoping for. Mogwai are set to return next year with the wonderfully-titled Hardcore Will Never Die, But you Will, which is more a statement of fact than anything else.

Phil Udell said in a recent podcast about digital journalism that one of the hardest things to do is descibe instrumental music. Listening to ‘Rano Pano’ offers such a problem. It is laid-back heavy music, that is Mogwai throughout. You can download the first track off the album via the widget below. Though you do have to hand over your email address. The band plays Dublin and Galway next year.

The track will be released with a b-side, ‘Hasenheide’ in January.
