Malojian – Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home

malojian weirdness

While there’s been no shortage of first-rate albums released on these shores this year, Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home by Malojian is a special kind of triumph.

The self-produced follow-up to the Stephen Scullion-fronted threesome’s Steve Albini-produced This Is Nowhere, the album is a masterfully mottled effort, veering between wonderfully wistful folk tales, Motorik rhythms, found sound and a whole gamut of forward-thinking textures and ideas. And featuring the likes of Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M., Atoms For Peace, Roger Waters), Gerry Love (Teenage Fanclub), and Jon Thorne of Yorkston, Thorne & Khan, the collaborative backbone of the release runs parallel with Scullion’s open-ended, subtly experimental approach here.

Partly recorded in a lighthouse off the coast of Northern Ireland, Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home bursts with heart and real, forward-moving motion. It’s out now, in a run of limited edition coloured vinyl, CD & digitally – available to buy here.
