Album review: Malcolm Middleton - 'Waxing Gibbous'
Apparently, you can fight the moonlight
is pitched firmly in the former camp.
His new set is disarmingly jaunty, occasionally odd – as on the scratchy electro-folk of ‘Don’t Want To Sleep Tonight’ – and frequently lovely, chiefly on the parched reverie of ‘Ballad Of Fuck All’. Gibbous describes the state of a moon that is midway between being half and full – which is not a bad one-word review.
