From the diverse and controversial mind of Rob “The Hat” Gilbank comes a stunning debut album under the name of Molly Mutton, a project brought on by The Hat during 2008 in Lincoln, UK, consisting of a brilliant blend of multiple genres, including folk, glitch and rave. With such a varied theme and flavour, the album lends itself to previous projects brought on by Rob The Hat as its parents, including the rather abstract trance-rock, neo-industrial band Shoot The Clown and the solo psychedelic-folk project under the Rob The Hat persona.
Misplaced Adventures I and II follows the story of a confused girl in a near futuristic post-apocalyptic world who has lost her memory after years of being held hostage by a terrorist group. She suddenly finds herself alone and wandering the wastelands of this destroyed world. Throughout this journey, the music and words explore several aspects of the story, describing emotions and events occurring to and around Molly Mutton.
It is quite apparent and obvious that a lot of careful thought, planning and love has gone into the composing and production of this album. It will take you into another world manifested by the music and sounds and you will find it hard to get back out again.
So what is to come next? You can expect Chapter III and IV sometime next year, with more experimental sounds, adventurous ideas and stylistic inventions.
