In preparation for their numerous live shows this week, Moonwood spent the weekend (Sept. 28-29, 2013) rehearsing. Out of that, 128.5 minutes of music got recorded. They captured a few slow-burning versions of their current improvised arrangements for “Trans Lunar Express” and “Trans Martian Express” as well as an in-progress piece with the working title “Surf The Casbah“. Also a completely new, completely improvised, probably never to be played again, 20-minute post-punk tinged tune called “I Went Walking“. Patience rewards with deep droning freak-out culminations.
Available for stream and purchase at Bandcamp.
