One Last Summer

    “Like Felt exploring the recesses of krautrock, Moon Attendant marry analogue electronics to a lovely burbling pop sound” Shindig Magazine Brighton’s indie psych collective Moon Attendant emerge to release their debut LP ‘One Last Summer’. A new band featuring old friends. Brothers from critically acclaimed psych-space rock group Black Hearted Brother. Blewett swaps bass duties for vocals and electric guitar and other brother Holton once again provides synths & production. Label boss and guest Neil Halstead also wires up his pedalboard and crashes some signature Slowdive sound-waves into this record. The line up is completed by Big Potato mainstay McCutcheon (Slowdive/ Mojave 3) on percussion & guitarist and songwriter Molyneux. Moon Attendant’s psychedelic grunge pop debut LP wields deranged analogue synths within a cozy jacket of fuzzy guitars and over saturated sonics. Imagine if Colin Blunstone & Klaus Schulze had released Pebbles-esque garage. Words & production walk a starry eyed tightrope between childish endeavour and mature lamentation. Songs about Death, Power, Drugs and Despair have never felt so pop! “There’s so much going on and it all works, they make it sound simple but it’s very hard to do” 

    The brainchild of The Strokes' bassist, Nikolai Fraiture, Summer Moon is a music and arts collective that features Stephen Perkins of Jane's Addiction (drums), Camila Grey of Uh Huh Her (keyboards/vocals) and Noah Harmon of The Airborne Toxic Event (guitar), as well as Fraiture himself on bass and lead vocals.

    Starting out as an "underground supergroup" (NME), the band's debut single, 'With You Tonight' immediately struck a chord with press and fans alike, becoming NME's 'Track Of The Week' and featuring as the soundtrack for Alexa Chung's collaboration with AG Jeans.

    Without the pressure of having to deliver an album within a certain period of time, coupled with the free-spirited nature of the band, Summer Moon has given Fraiture the freedom to experiment and expand his own musical horizons. Once the demos became fully formed songs, Summer Moon's wanderlust took them from their New York roots to Austin and back again.

    "We did most of the basic tracking at Vacation Island Studios with Matt Boynton, who did MGMT. The studio was tucked away in Brooklyn next to an overgrown parking lot filled with Puerto Rican Day parade floats and run-down classic cars. I then reached out to Brad Bell (Arcade Fire, The War On Drugs) at Public Hi-Fi Studios in Austin who helped produce some of the early tracks."

    With Fraiture playing many of the parts himself on the album, it resulted in heavy experimentation in order to discover new sonic landscapes and fully capture how the songs should sound.
