Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbert - Here Lies the Body (CD)
Fans of all good music to come out of Scotland will be familiar with the name Aidan Moffat. Now, the stalwart of Glasgow, one half of Arab Strap and Scottish Album of the Year winner - among many other accolades - joins fellow SAY Award winner and Chemikal Underground labelmate RM Hubbert for this new album, this time out on Mogwai's Rock Action Records.
The record features guest appearances from fellow Glaswegian Siobhan Wilson, who sings and plays cello (and who released her own There Are No Saints album last year to great acclaim); Louisville, Kentucky's Rachel Grimes on piano; and veteran jazz saxophonist John Burgess.
On a personal note, these are two of our favourite artists going, and it's a delight to report that this record is everything we'd hope for and more! Recommended.
