aidan moffat of arab strap presents us with a philosophical release – an experiment in what makes acquiring and listening to music personal and unique.

each record is presented sleeveless, in moffatt’s own words: “I don’t want a pristine, digital document that could last forever; I want the music left to the elements, I want it to live and scar, with each record’s acquired crackles, pops and scratches making them unique and identifiable to their owners.” serine blade runner atmospherics, mendelssohn performances sampled from youtube and frank sinatra records warped out of all recognition makes ‘1948’ a truly esoteric release.
