    Here Lies the Body holds a sweeter and more sentimental Moffat than one might expect. Some of these songs could be parallel universe versions of Arab Strap tales; the scenes quite similar, but the perspective lightened, finding tender humor in human intimacy that’s tart but not bitter.

    It's droll, evocative and occasionally moving. [Jun 2018, p.30]

    The wit and wisdom of Moffat is about as sharp as ever here and ‘Hubby’ is clearly at the top of his game.

    This isn’t a linear narrative, with our author bending the fabric of time to suck us deeper into the emotional life of the characters in his story. As devices go, it’s a sharp one.

    A misbegotten romance plays out across the album in disturbing, always enthralling fashion. [Jul 2018, p.98]

    While there might be a pleasing inevitability to their sonic tryst--and even to its shagging-and-dying trajectory--there is nothing predictable about Here Lies The Body.

    A starkly modern folk record centered on a narrative of a mother leaving her family. [Jul 2018, p.114]
