Experimental rock maestros Moon Relay’s opus _...-``-..._! First premiered at Henie Onstad Art Centre February 9, 2020 in cooperation with visual artists Anthony Barratt and Espen Friberg, and now reworked in the studio to form their biggest and most powerful release this far. The release also marks their first album in cooperation with Sheep Chase Records.
Where earlier releases have been more traditionally based on stand-alone tracks, _...-``-..._ is a more conceptual experience still playing on some of the same inspirational sources. Early post-punk and no-wave mixed together with noiserock, kraut, jazz, fractured funk and sometimes elements from hip hop in the spirit of Afrika Bambaataa. Avantgarde, hypnotic and yet groovy on the verge of dancy. Trance-like rhythms evolving into mysterious drones, and then funky bass lines with noisy guitars and synths floating on top. A unique and all-consuming experience.
The album comes with two fronts (red and blue) and no backside. The yellow cover is for digital consumption.
