Andy Futreal / Moonwood split cassette

31/05/2010

Not an Arachnidiscs release, but  Moonwood has a new EP on a split cassette put out by fOlkwaste

From the fOlkwaste library website:

Side A – Andy Futreal: Returning from Asian travels, Futreal combines a mysterious smoke blown through wooden flutes. Perhaps the malaria medication is giving us these intense dreams. Side effects merge into effect pedals, rivers of bicycles flowing through market streets, dodging cattle, their bells ringing in time with the chimes of metal hammered into unrecognizable tools.

Side B – Moonwood: Towers of Babel fall. The god of Reverb bears a human child. Meditation as medication. Religious experiences are discarded in favor of deep soul searching. Doors fly open as an organ signals new moonwood. Transcendental floss.

Limited edition of 18, hand numbered and painted cassettes. Tied up in collaged envelopes with storybook insert. each one unique. Please send $7 in North America or $9 for rest of the world… paypal to individual6079 {at} yahoo {dot} com” ~ Folkwaste.com

MOONWOOD : COAL ABERRATIONS *released*

11/05/2010

We’re pleased to announce the official release of Coal Aberrations by Moonwood. Click the image  to go to the Arachnidiscs Store.

This is the first Moonwood release to feature performances by musicians other than multi-instrumentalist Moonwood (Jakob Rehlinger).

Moonwood collaborators include Rehlinger’s New Yaki cohorts Andrew Macgregor (Gown/The Bark Haze) and Stephen Wolf (Partli Cloudi/Summer Amp) as well as Ameen (Healthy Animal), Robert Gray (robrobrob), Elgin-Skye, Eli Korsorado (Brave New Waves), Richard Holiday Cartwright (Everything Is Geometry), Rose Redweed (Dirtnap), Mandi Hardy and Kyprieth.

Operating under the maxim “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts“, Moonwood invited an international group of musicians to submit solo improvisations on their instruments (from tin cans to cellos) sight unseen—or sound unheard as the case may be—for him to build full compositions in and around. Some takes were mixed directly into existing arrangements (Eli’s sax/Kyprieth’s flute), others were used as a launching-pad (Dirtnap’s piano/Heathy Animal’s rhythm drones/Gown’s guitar) for whole new pieces.

The result takes Moonwood’s loose acid folk to both freer/noiser extremes (“Deep Soul #3“) and towards more structured, almost neo-classical/post-rock compositions (“We Are Already Dead“) while retaining the brooding, free-form feel of the previous release, Aubade.
