Inspired by the lifecycle of a tree—from seed to recycled paper—the Limbus suite sprawls skyward while rooting itself deep in the rocky murk. Drawing parallels between the root systems of plants and our own limbic system, harsh, bowed guitar drives over delicate, leafy arpeggios backed by percussion textures ranging from sparse to pummelling.
Moonwood rehearsals 3 & 4 (MOONWOLF)08/10/2011
Two new releases in the Moonwood live rehearsal tapes series. Both feature Stephen Wolf (Summer Amp, New Yaki, Partli Cloudi, etc) on percussion, prepared bass guitar and, we think, moaning vocals.
Vol. 3 is over an hour of live jams recorded straight to 2-track as a duo over 2 days somewhere between the pyramids and the cosmos.
Vol. 4 (aka “Moonwolf”) is a half-hour set recorded live as a trio on October 6th. “Mowgli” is a straight live take whereas “Akela” is three live jams spliced together, adding analogue synth and a barrage of percussion instruments into the usual Moonwood stew.
