Boomkat product review for:

l. pierre - The Island Come True

**Includes digital download voucher redeemable from the label** Following his 'Everything's Getting Older' album with Bill Wells, Arab Strap's Aidan Moffat returns as L. Pierre with the richly atmospheric 'The Island Come True', his fourth album in this guise - the first since 2007. While perhaps best known as a wry and observant lyricist, his vocals are abandoned in favour of cherry-picked samples - operatic loops, intimate, humming ditties and fragments sourced from radio - finely woven with carefully dilapidated sonics under referential track titles to sculpt a distant, detached dreamscape in our imaginations, or as Moffat puts it "it's about taking the listener on a wee journey, but where that journey goes is entirely up to them... I wanted this one to be more suggestive and mysterious than the previous records." Hence we're subtly prompted by signposts such as the album title itself, borrowed from a chapter in Peter Pan, or the opening track title - the name of the radio station heard in John Carpenter's 'The Fog', or 'Tulpa', a Buddhist term for a physical object brought about purely by the power of the mind, which, when combined with the retrograded musical textures and feel for surreal, mossy melody and sinister synth ambience make for the kind of album as perfectly suited to long drives in the highlands as headphone commutes and long nights alone.
