Malojian announces Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home Deluxe Edition


The latest NI Music Prize-nominated album from Stephen Scullion, aka Malojian is getting a much-deserved deluxe edition.

Released through Quiet Arch Records on November 30, it’s his fourth solo album, and his strongest collection of songs to date, injecting the golden era of 60s pop melodicism he’s known for with the perfect power-pop of Teenage Fanclub & Grandaddy, as well as a more experimental, psychedelic edge than we’d seen from him until this point.

Recorded in a lighthouse on NI’s Rathlin Island – in contrast to its Steve Albini-recorded predecessor, it features guest performances from a pedigreed cast of collaborators – Teenage Fanclub’s Gerard Love, Beck/R.E.M./Atoms For Peace drummer Joey Waronker, and Jon Thorne – bassist for Yorkston/Thorne/Khan.

This limited edition coloured pressing of the original album comes with a CD featuring 18 tracks, including acoustic versions, live tracks, demos & new single ‘Beardness’ – which can be streamed below.

Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home is available to pre-order now in a variety of bundles, with a bonus 7″ of ‘Beardness’, from Bandcamp.
