Boomkat Product Review:
Raime + Valentina Magaletti's Moin project sum up their influences on a class 90 min mixtape delivered in the wake of a their ace debut album ‘Moot!'.
Marking nearly 10 years since Joe Andrews, Tom Halstead and Valentina Magaletti’s side-project emerged on their Confessions (a sublabel of Blackest Ever Black) split with Pete Swanson, the mix renders a scuzzy deep dive into their enviable record collections, racking up a feral selection of bullets that reek of beer-stained back room pub carpets, cigs and sweat. Beloved for their numerous mixtapes over the years, the group here fuck off the mixing in favour of a no frills barrage of angst-ridden, snotty vocals and wiry guitars delivered with armfuls of jittery melodies designed to an adrenalin rush. Aye, no need for ID’s on this one, just join the dots between their overarching love of underground energy in its myriad, direct and obtuse forms.
