Product notities

Listen to Benedict Moleta's fifth album and it's like hearing your past played back at you in a sad and sentimental key. You, me, and Moleta: together we've shared this lived experience of love and loss in Western Australia, our hearts rusty with the bore water marks of Moleta's delicately spun narratives. The relationship between location and emotional familiarity reign supreme in Moleta's delicate music making. Take Believer: after two minutes' worth of layered guitars and shimmering cymbals, the instrumental deadens and Moleta's voice pipes up, opulent in it's practiced, unflappable candour: 'If I turn right into this street tonight/I feel like I will be driving/To your girlfriends house in 2002/When you still had your silver Celica/And I was still getting to know you'. Timesheet features a collaborative ensemble of Perth musos whose influence is sometimes subtle (Rosemary Halsmith's whimsical glockenspiel in Crazy Itch) but else times transformative: the prominent drums and formal song structure of Minaret take a decidedly pop folk turn (not dissimilar to 2008's Bicoastal). However, it's tracks like Greyhound, where there is only the sparse backing of gently plucked guitar strings accompanying Moleta's meandering recollections ('we went by different streets the last time we walked/over the gradual hill from my house to yours') that remain Timesheet's highlights. The sheer poetry in this album will floor you. Danielle Marsland X Press Magazine April 2010 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Moleta's new single is the jaunty (for him) 'Minaret'. The man has been working with an ever growing collection of collaborators and 'Minaret' seems the pop-ish result of this excursion. But it's other album cut on this sampler that strikes best. 'Metal Towers' sits somewhere in the rack alongside Smog, Calexico and the Candle Records (R.I.P) roster. Tales of architecture intersect with ruminations on friendship amid a local landscape. 'Wet skin on the warm bricks at the poolside / the movie kind've showed you what an older brother would've been like'. It's a lovely, affecting tale, one whose world encompasses 'Nadine Gardner', 'BMX' and 'your down syndrome friend' in the space of a few lines. With lyrical visions such as these - and the songcraft to match - Moleta remains a distinctly individual character in the overcrowded cupboard of singer/songwriters. Marcus Teague thevine.com.au March 2010 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now that it's possible to have some success in Perth as either a Triple J-played, summer festival band or a limited edition album-selling, underground east coast-touring band, turf and politics are more fraught than ever. One artist who has remained the same in times of little and in times plenty has been sombre soloist Benedict Moleta, who this weekend launches his fifth album, Timesheet. Moleta has been releasing records for the past eight years, starting with his debut solo EP Scales. Since then he has worked with various musicians under his name and the group name White Paper, quietly building up one of the most impressive and unique discographies Perth has seen. Timesheet breaks with the tendency in his earlier records to render heart-and-soul-crushing melancholy and includes a few songs that approach a rock sound, but Moleta says this is far from an attempt to poach listeners. 'It hasn't really been a deliberate decision on my part - it's really the product of the band working together in a more cohesive way and developing a sound of their own,' he says. His backing band have revolved over the years but almost two years ago they firmed into a solid seven-piece ensemble. 'As we've rehearsed over the past 18 months, the songs have taken lots of surprising directions, I guess due to the presence of strong musical personalities taking the initial songwriting ideas into foreign and interesting places,' Moleta says. 'Harry (Kneen) is a busy, melodic bass player - almost like having a third guitar in the band. Sam (Scherr) is a very riffy guitar player, Lorraine (Sumich)'s Hammond organ fattens up the sound and makes it cruise properly, and Lily (Sumich) is always hitting the off beats, which cuts across my meathead straight strumming quite nicely.' These additions and the band's remaining members - keyboardist and percussionist Rosemary Halsmith, live audio sampler Daniel Marano and pedal steel guitarist Cameron Sim - work together to make Timesheet one of Moleta's best works. It might seem odd for him to hit his stride after such a long time flying under the radar but for Moleta it's just a by-product of following his passion. 'The thing I enjoy most is playing the songs with my friends,' he says. 'As far as record label representation and public exposure are concerned, I've tried to make my activities as public as possible, and of course I would welcome the chance to have the music represented and distributed by capable hands. 'But in the meantime, it's enjoyable enough to keep playing the songs with the people who want to do it with me. And the albums are just documents of all these good times we've had together.' Benedict Moleta launches Timesheet at Mojos on Saturday supported by the Painkillers, Umpire and the Leap Year. Matt Giles The West Australian April 2010.
