Moon Zero – A Bevan Rotation

My first contribution to our soundtrack of August is this elegant dirge by Londoner Tim Garratt, known professionally as Moon Zero. Admittedly, my attention was first drawn by the notably eerie image attached to the single and I still can’t determine if it’s a Scott Walker The Drift homage or some inadvertent alien Polaroid, either way its definitely suitable for the track. It begins as a cathedral like rotary organ on rotisserie which keeps the song’s ultimate end point in question; comedy or tragedy? Sure enough about three minutes through the track it turns off into tragedy alley, but the ride is suspenseful and Garratt is quite a craftsman.
