Last year Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite, Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, Editors’ Justin Lockey and his brother James formed a super group and released a self-titled album called Minor Victories. All of their parts were recorded in isolation, so the story goes, and it was an almost perfect merging of their individual styles. Throw in guest spots from Mark Kozelek and James Graham and you had a very interesting, and diverse, album.
