Atomic, the new album by Scottish experimental rock legends Mogwai, comprises reworked versions of the music recorded for the soundtrack to director Mark Cousins's acclaimed documentary Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise, which first aired on BBC Four last summer.

Constructed entirely of archive film, Atomic is an impressionistic kaleidoscope of the horrors of our nuclear times—protest marches, Cold War sabre-rattling, Chernobyl, and Fukishimabut also the sublime beauty of the atomic world, and how x-rays and MRI scans have improved human lives. Mogwai's soundtrack encapsulates the nightmare of the nuclear age, but its dreamlike qualities, too. It is the latest in the band's series of impressive soundtracks and scores, following acclaimed albums Les Revenants (The Returned) and Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait.

Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite says: "The Atomic soundtrack is one of the most intense and fulfilling projects we've taken on as a band. Ever since we went to Hiroshima to play and visited the peace park this has been a subject very close to us. The end results, both the film score and the record, are pieces I'm extremely proud of."

For “Flagger Ahead,” the students will assemble “altars” to encourage deeper thinking about sound and sonic imagination for the audience.

Hayley Reardon

Jeff LeBlanc graduated from Sacred Heart University, earned a history degree, and imagined that he most likely would become a middle-school teacher. However, LeBlanc’s discovery of songwriting led him down a different path. Since releasing his first EP, Signals, in 2009, he has epitomized success as an independent artist, netting three top-20 albums on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart: 2011’s Worth Holding On To, 2013’s My Own Way There, and 2015’s Vision. This lead to LeBlanc scoring dozens of television placements, achieving both satellite and commercial radio play, selling out headline shows, and touring the country with a wide range of acts, including Gavin DeGraw, Tori Kelly, Ingrid Michaelson, Parachute, and many more.

After quickly establishing a name for herself in the storied Cambridge, Massachusetts folk scene at a very young age, Hayley Reardon’s sterling debut album, 2012’s Where the Artists Go, achieved widespread acclaim in New England. She has received feature support from the Boston Herald, NPR affiliate WBUR, and Boston Globe Magazine, who named her a Bostonian of the Year, in celebration of not only her music, but her work to use it as a vessel for empowerment. Reardon’s 2014 release Wayfindings expanded her International footprint via syndicated public radio show “Art of the Song” and praise from Paste, Performer Magazine, Americana UK, and American Songwriter who referred to its first single, “Numb & Blue” as a “melancholy little masterpiece.”

In turn, these songs have been covered by musical notables such as the Beach Boys, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Van Morrison, Nirvana, Odetta, Little Richard, Pete Seeger, Frank Sinatra, and Tom Waits.
