Lunar Chateau: Lunar Chateau

Recorded in 1994 and newly released on the French progressive rock label “Musea”, the American band “Lunar Chateau” have been garnering a noteworthy reputation throughout Europe, the US and South America for several years. A keyboard, drums and bass trio consisting of the Sekulovich brothers, lead vocalist and bassist Paul Sekulovich’s breezy incantations might appeal to fans of “Yes”, “Camel” and a few other prominent and time honored outfits of the progressive rock genre.

The band exhibits a strong predilection for incorporating memorably melodic themes into their itinerary, thanks in part to keyboardist Novak Sekulovich’s multilayered synths, catchy hooks and deterministic approach. Furthermore, the Trio conveys a light-hearted and somewhat positive demeanor via upbeat and joyous sentiment as portrayed through thought provoking lyricism. And other than Milo Sekulovich’s monstrous power drumming solo exhibition on the track titled, “Fearless”, the musicians adhere to a concise and tightly woven group sound as they forsake extended soloing and cutting contests while focusing more on affable arrangements and well placed notes. Basically, this self-titled release warrants repeated spins and is bound to put a smile on your face, as the overall effect is that powerful.
