Recording: Moon King

Artist: Moon King

Songs: Impossible + Roswell

Recorded at Smiling Buddha, April 14, 2015.

Moon King - Impossible

Moon King - Roswell

With Dan Lee warming up the crowd with his Lee Paradise project (to say nothing of Alex Low rocking the room between sets from the DJ booth) this night was, in one sense, not so far removed from going to see HUT playing all-ages shows in dark basements. But looked at another way, we've all come a long way since then. Although the pair of Obsession EP's essentially added up to an album, the brand new Secret Life gets the nod as the first "official" Moon King full-length. It also shows the continuing development of Daniel Woodhead's musical craft, integrating textured lushness with spiky energy in increasingly natural ways. The shared vocals with Maddy Wilde accentuate the dreamy sensibility and this band continues to sound better at slower tempos. Getting ready to take the new album on tour and represent T.O. to the world, the crew was already in fine form.
