    new york times preview

    mogwai and seely, brownies, 169 avenue a, at 10th street, east village, (212) 420-8392. these two bands wander different byways of understated but serious rock. mogwai plays slow-motion pieces: three or four chords that meditate or build inexorably, with touches of dissonance and, perhaps, a conversation or an under-the-breath vocal attached. seely is atlanta's analogue of stereolab, setting minimalist patterns behind lounge-flavored melodies and ruminative words. saturday night; call club for times. admission is $7 (pareles).
