Best known as the gentle guitar foil to Warren Ellis’ flamboyantly melancholy violin in The Dirty Three, Mick Turner hardly allows himself to cut loose on this, his third solo album. Instead, Moth consists of 19 untitled guitar meditations, reminiscent of Papa M, only far more weathered and haphazard. Turner’s tunes have a pensive, wandering style, but that’s part of their charm. Plus points, too, for the excited dog on “Part One” and the sleeve being designed by a company/individual called “Giant Beer”.
