The album is released through Riot Season Records at premium quality on June 14th 2019.
Electric Moon is an incredible established German psychedelic rock band with far-out guitars with bubbling effects, ambient echos and vicious wah-wah screams backed by entrancing rhythm and soothing space rock synthesizer and organ.
The song is titled “Beacon Light Hereafter” opening with ambient and beautiful music with electronic glitter building up to fuzzy guitar leads saturated with effects and pounding drums. The song comes back to its softer starting place so smoothly that it almost escapes the listener. This is when the wonderful classic rock guitar takes the lead tones to a place something like David Gilmore‘s from Pink Floyd. The guitars and synth turn dark as a wall of synthesized distortion and saw-tooth fuzz comes ripping out of the cosmic ocean. The drudging bass and guitar drone forward with filtered synth screeching into spacey almost vocal harmonic resonance until it all spirals out in a cloud of sonic dust glittering quietly in the universe and then pummeling again for bravado at the very end.
Terminal Cheesecake takes the listener into the distortion and fuzz with edgy feedback. They use droning synth and filtered guitar looping into oblivion as the patterns create a grounded earthy tone. Their vocals are used as an instrument with long echoes. This music is like a scene from Twin Peaks in the lodge; it presents a surreal, darkness. Terminal Cheesecake was formed in 1988 playing dark underground drone and have played together intermittently through the decades.
This is an awesome cohesive album with instrumental compositions exploring the new wave of psychedelic drone, space rock, and the heavier side of krautrock.
