I Can Hear Your Heart is a musical novel by former Arab Strap singer/lyricist Aidan Moffat about the adventures, regrets, and dark comedy of being a pissed, chaotic and promiscuous man in your mid-twenties.Now if those sounds more artsy than music, just give it a listen. I'm not much for poetry and performance art and all that, but this is a terrific record that really draws you in. And its fun.
There's no verse-chorus. No hooks. Virtually no beats. And most of it is spoken ... and no, not rapped ... in a hypnotic Falkirk sigh.
Please play the tracks in order!!!!!!!
Obviously from the description above you kinda have to hear the whole thing; short stories aren't greatest hits from a novel. This one track will give you a good idea if you will like the whole bit or not though.
(It was one of Blimpey's early podcasts that started me down this road btw; I'd missed it first time around but mnemonic put all the RR podcasts she could find in dropbox and I listened to them .... er, and some promises were made by some people to record again soon and not been kept. Harumph)
