Boomkat Product Review:
It’s true, everything’s getting older – but good music has a way of transcending that. Ex-Arab Strap bloke Aiden Moffat and Scottish jazzy type Bill Wells have been working on this record for eight years now, proof if ever proof were needed that sometimes music doesn’t need to be dropped in with a date stamp. Wells’ production and melodies shouldn’t be a shock to anyone who’s come across his music before but the way it matches up with Moffat’s distinctive voice and poetry is nothing short of a revelation. The first thing I noticed about ‘Everything’s Getting Older’ was just how removed it is from Moffat’s work with Arab Strap – sure it’s the same voice, but set against a backdrop of piano, drums and grimy jazz it sounds as if his poetry is being animated more vividly than ever before. Wells’ music has always been cinematic, but take a listen to ‘Dinner Time’ and tell me you don’t think these guys were made to work together? Sometimes things age poorly, and when you look back you sort of wonder why it ever happened at all. Aiden Moffat has already proved he can stand the test of time, and this collaboration is another reason why he’s one of the most engaging lyricists around right now. Let’s hope it doesn’t take another eight years for the next record eh?
