Song of the Wind | CD/LP 2008

$10

“Very straight ahead, personal, even disturbing at times. I liked SONG OF THE WIND a lot. It’s such a sad song, delivered so delicately. The images of loss are really poetic, and each one tells a complete story in two lines. Very strong stuff …”

DAVID KAHNE

– Producer (PAUL McCARTNEY, THE STROKES, SEAN LENNON)

 

“The virtues of simplicity” “There is a pleasingly unpretentious aesthetic toSong of the Wind, from its relatively straightforward sleeve design to the stripped back nature of the music contained within. It is a spare album, almost the bare bones of a sound. There is often little more than a single guitar, sometimes acoustic, sometimes haunted by the ghost of electricity, with only occasional embellishments such as a harmonica or subtle leads dancing around the vocals. Moon’s voice itself does not disturb the pattern, a hushed but resonant instrument weaving words through the quiet beauty.The melodies are equally simple but the combined effect is a captivating hypnotic quality, which at points seems almost eerie. Indeed, Moon evokes a backwoods American gothic without resorting to any of the cliches which have established themselves over the last ten years. There are hints of a British tradition here too, especially the work of NICK DRAKE and JOHN MARTYN. Such comparisons also stand with regard to the lyrics, which in maintaining the dominant modesty of the album attain a lucid poetry…”
