L. PIERRE - THE ISLAND COME TRUE (2LP)


"Across his many projects past and present, it's under the moniker of L. Pierre that Aidan Moffat (Ex-Arab Strap) has perhaps best opened up the bare bones of his thirst for sonic exploration. The Island Come True is Moffat's fourth album as L. Pierre and is a work assembled from the vast cavern of his assembled field recordings and samples, a collage that works as a sonic patchwork of the 39 year-old's own mind. As such, the album is as a dreamscape, with fragments of classical works, drum samples, instructional speeches and, in a link back to his last album, recordings of nature. Electronics elements previously employed on past albums have been discarded, the album in its entirety consisting only of these found sounds. The record is overridden by the hissing of tape tracks and drones. It's apt that such an otherworldly LP has been named after the title of the chapter in Peter Pan where they discover Neverland."
