Dima Midborn is known among his friends as the Russian underground’s hardest working musician. Forever on the lookout for doing something new, bassist Midborn busies himself with Inturist, On-The-Go and a number of solo projects. This new release, the title signaling his slide into middle-aged decrepitude, is a gem for misanthropes everywhere.
It’s a sensuous, languorous collection of downbeat, bass-driven numbers that really get the listener in the mood for having a snifter or two (with some cheese), in their carpet slippers on a Saturday afternoon, whilst the Significant Other is away doing something more responsible. Our hero croaks and groans his way through a set of lounge-style soliloquies, helped along by some (frankly) beautiful bass playing and clever arrangements.
