Post-rock Giants From Russia Mooncake Sign on with Fluttery Records
Mooncake, the post-rock band who has reached his audience to thousands of people around the world, has signed a recording contract with Fluttery Records.
New York, NY (I-Newswire) February 17, 2011 - Mooncake and Fluttery Records has signed on an agreements and all Mooncake releases will be made available by Fluttery Records (flutteryrecords.com).
Mooncake is a Russian post-rock band founded in Moscow early 2006. Since then Mooncake has been permanently performing at top Moscow clubs and festivals, toured Russia and Ukraine, shared stage with such bands as God is an Astronaut, Explosions in the sky, Caspian, Russian circles and finally became the leader of Russian instrumental and post-rock music scene.
In five years time the band released three EPs and one full length album, which were warmly welcomed both by listeners and critics not only in Russia but all over the world as well.
Most critics emphasize that Mooncake has successfully revised such conservative genre as post-rock and its clichés and in the end the band came up with its own style and sound that one can easily recognize. In his review of the band’s single “Cast the route” (2009) Jordan Walz (TheSilentBallet.com) wrote:
"After a successful debut album, Mooncake has released a single that points toward changes in the near future. I'm more excited about this band than I've ever been. Cast the Route witnesses a sophisticated band that has defeated its demons and seemingly nothing is standing in its way for a knockout sophomore album. Russia has long been waiting for a band to champion over its Western competition. In a few years time, Mooncake may be that band."
Mooncake is sometimes compared to Pink Floyd or Mogwai but the band has made a name for itself having developed its own style and became quiet popular among connoisseurs of genre both home and abroad. Catchy melodies, atmosphere, the ideal balance between rapture and grief: all this has always been Mooncake's distinctive feature.
The main idea of the band’s music is to open the door to infinite space, cosmos, kaleidoscope of meanings, wide opportunities and sparkling hope in any everyday thing, everywhere: in a glass of milk, bookshelf, tree or forest path, in each everyday action and life, no matter would it be a walk or a bus trip, lessons or work in the office.
Acording to the agreement signed by band members Pavel Smirnov, Anton Marchenko, Nikolay Bulanov, Leonid Kurashov and label owner Taner Torun, all Mooncake releases will be on CD which includes More Oxygen, I Said (2007), Lagrange Points (2008) with a new welcome home EP. Fluttery Records is an independent record label releasing Post-rock, Ambient, Experimental, Electronic, Modern Classical music.
