The Pictish Trail - Wait Until (Moshi Moshi Records) 
The Pictish Trail - Wait Until

Old blue eyes is back and, apart from looking like a Scottish Joaquin Phoenix, The Pictish Trail is also highly talented at creating understated things of beauty. 'Wait Until' sees our weather beaten hero create a soulful, moving ditty with nothing more than a gravelly electro bass melody, the sound of two wooden spoons being played on a peg-leg and a bit of whale music. The real beauty of The Pictish Trail, however, is that this is electronic music created with the ethos of folk running through it and you can imagine this single being played out on a series of improbable highland instruments as much as you can hear it as a sequence of electronically produced noises. And they do say, the sign of a good song is whether you can play it on the bagpipes or not.
