Boomkat Product Review:
Cripes, this may well be the finest of all Aidan Moffat's outings as L. Pierre. Dip sees the Ex-Arab Strap man refining his art on a wholly more epic scale. Cited by the artist as a concept album of sorts, Dip is themed around the natural world - the sea in particular - and is underpinned by appropriate environmental recordings. 'Gullsong', as its title suggests, is constituted from the coastal sounds of birds and waves hitting the shore, all set to a kind of woozily melancholic sea chantey made up of droning harmonium, willowy cello and choral howls. 'Weir's Way' persists with the idea of underlying field recordings forming the introductory basis of a track, as the tidal motions of the sea provide a backdrop for faded strings and warm gusts of brass. Further on, 'Ache' is utterly gorgeous, a piece fashioned from layerings of ghostly vinyl crackle and eroded orchestration. It's supremely beautiful. 'Hike' marks a shift in tone, its rampant drum machine accompaniment to the bristling string section bringing to mind Aphex Twin's 'Girl/Boy'. Except this has banjo in it. Finally, 'Drift' sees the album off with some vast, watery, orchestral ambience. Excellent stuff indeed.
