WAXING GIBBOUS
MALCOLM MIDDLETON
FULL TIME HOBBY

Reportedly his last before an extended sabbatical, Waxing Gibbous is again where the dreary bogs of Middleton’s psyche are detailed before a frequently unremarkable musical backdrop. Between clumps of inert accoustica are ‘Zero and ‘ I Don’t Wanna Sleep’; satisfactory examples of well-judged ‘folktronica’ and gallivanting opener ‘Red Travelling Socks’ engenders a short-lived vitality. Alas, any peppercorn of straightforward passion contracts next to Middleton’s chokingly reflexive M.O. Almost to spur your indifference he sings: “Everything I do is redundant / Everything I write is a lie” on a song entitled ‘Ballad of Fuck All”. All you need to know, really.

5/10
