MOONWOOD – The Strength of the Wolf is the Pack, and the Strength of the Pack is the Wolf
Buy Now: CD – 13 tracks/48 mins. Atmospheric psychexotica. Pocket sleeve in translucent red lino block printed envelope w/ 3-pack of pin back buttons.
From the meditative opener, “So The Darkness Shall Be The Light, And The Stillness Be The Dancing” to the rambling opium den epic of “Where The Flowers Blossom Red”, the album smoulders with Javanese go-go gamelan gongs, smoky Cambodian funk, wicked Celtic ragas, deep Saharan blues, simmering Sufi surf and spacedout Indian soul. A heady fusion for heady times (times like, say, 1972 or, possibly, 1912). RIYL: Six Organs, Dengue Fever, Robbie Basho

Both sites feature the usual updates about what Moonwood and BABEL are up to (news tracks, videos, live dates, etc) but additionally the Moonwood site now houses the “Live Rehearsals” series (which used to be posted here) and the BABEL site features an ongoing radio/tape/media collage project called TRANZMIT.
