Mick turner - Moth

Mick Turner is a guitarist best known for his work with the group Dirty Three and his numerous other collaborations with the likes of Bonnie Prince Billy and Cat Power. He is also a painter and has done the cover art for many of his projects. My favorite work of his comes in the form of his solo project released under his own name, more specifically, the album called simply ‘Moth’. The music here is a collection of short guitar songs all strung together to work as a whole. Some are a bit more rambling and short than others but all of them hold a place of their own among the record as a whole. Other instruments sneak in there from time to time but for the most part it is the echoing calm of the guitar that holds your attention. The songs radiate a peaceful existence and beg your mind to relax. One of my favorite discoveries of the year, you owe it to yourself to pick this one up. It will leave your mind refreshed and ready to live.
