Arab Strap«s Malcolm Middleton steps in face of the mike for this store, which casts the unoriginal Strap themes -- melancholy, self-abhorrence, loneliness -- over breakable stabs of acoustic guitar accentuated with swirls of atmospheric keyboards and the ritual female unanimity (civility of Eva»s Jenny Reave; the album also features contributions from Mogwai guy Barry Burns). According to the folks at Chemikal Guerrillas, 5: 14 Fluoxytine Seagull Demon Rum John Nicotine began as a Middleton rest-home recording concoct before its fleshing out. But even with light percussion or the aforementioned synth squiggles, the album is still intensely intimate -- Middleton«s accented murmur is almost an aside to himself that listeners just unlooked-for to overhear. Sometimes, it»s intimate to the spike of awkwardness. «Where are you tonight?» he wonders in the rickety «Cold Winter.» «Why aren«t you here?/You should be looking after me this winter/I sure as scolding can»t» -- you want to twitch a steamer to Scotland, or send in a St. Bernard with a cask of hot brandy. In «Speed on the M9,» he professes a order to get into a monomachy just for the friends, and «Loneliest Night-Time of My Lifestyle Came Calling» is made even more achy when its swaying song is picked up by a windstorm of keys and bittersweet fiddle. Fluoxytine bottoms out with «Devil and the Angel.» The first quiddity tells Middleton his «songs are sh*te,» while the second reassures with humanitarian words. Which route will he choose? Given the self-beating and unhappiness palpable in every stitch of the album, the angel might not remain standing a unlooked-for. Perk demo tracks are included at the end of the album; there's also a instantly smokescreen from Arab Strap video captain Martin Smith.
