MoonMot: Going Down The Well

Read "Going Down The Well" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Six musicians from the UK and Switzerland, with a strong background in improvisation and a talent for mixing acoustic and electronic instrumentation, creating tunes which move from the gentle, Rhodes-led, intro to “35 Years" and the bass-sax interplay which opens “Threnody Of The English Polity" to the raucous baritone sax of the title track—that is MoonMot ...

Robin Phillips: Re-Versed

Read "Re-Versed" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

How long does it take to write the lyrics?

Merry Peers: Merry Peers

Read "Merry Peers" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

The collective name under which Brad Henkel and Yoshiko Klein operate suggests that the duo's debut release is a record filled with jolly songs about inconsequential things (or that it's a tribute to the Grand Slam winning French tennis professional, Mary Pierce). Whether such intentions are deliberate or not, it takes only a few seconds of ...
