AVA LUNA - MOON 2 VINYL (LTD. ED. 'MOON' COLOURED LP GATEFOLD)
LIMITED EDITION 'MOON' COLOURED VINYL LP GATEFOLD
Release Date: 28th September 2018
"On Moon 2 Ava Luna's de facto band leader Carlos Hernandez steps back, leaving space for the rest of the band members to step up and step into roles they hadn't occupied on previous albums. Felicia Douglass (now a touring member of Dirty Projectors) worked with percussion and sampler, Julian Fader experimented with synths, nearly every band member ran the computer during recording sessions, and Becca Kauffman (aka performance artist Jennifer Vanilla) composed her first song for the group On Its Side the Fallen Fire, a deeply layered orchestral piece of Kate Bush grandeur meets Julia Holter reverie. Compared with previous Ava Luna albums, Moon 2 has fewer sharp turns into dissonance, fewer celebratory guitar parts, none of Hernandez's signature screams. Nevertheless, the infectious buoyancy of Deli Run and Walking With an Enemy, are warm and bright, and songs like Centerline and Phoebe (Set it Off) venture confidently into pop territory. For fans of Tom Tom Club, Dirty Projectors, Animal Collective, Tune-Yards and Sylvan Esso."
