Everything’s Getting Older

Ah, Aidan Moffat. He’s not just there for the miserable parts of life. Oh ok, yes he is. His dry, laconic, sodding miserable style has the perverse effect of making you feel quite perky. No idea why. What do you want from me, insight?

He’s back with Bill Wells, with a charming new record called “Everything’s Getting Older”. It is, as you’d expect, all solemn piano and vaguely uplifting strings and just general drollery, which is bracingly, refreshingly cleansing. Single “The Copper Top”, with its funeral director video, gives you a pretty good idea of their oeuvre:

As the saying goes, if you like this kind of thing, this is the kind of thing you’ll like. After the year I’ve had, and on a day like today, will you begrudge me this?
