Songs We Like to Listen to While Traveling Through Open Space

Album Notes
"Songs We Like to Listen to While Traveling Through Open Space"
was recorded as though you were sitting
around a table with The Moonband, in order to predominantly maintain the pure sound.
If you listen very closely, you can
hear the ever so faint creaking of the wooden floorboards in the 150
year old house in Bohemian-Switzerland (Czech Republic), which served
as the recording studio. Set deep in the countryside in a dark forest,
hardly any different than that of outer space. The perfect
surroundings to create such an intimate album.

Some of the songs on "Open Space" are older than two years, over the
course of time that have changed, condensed, and grown together with
the band. Other songs arose, as it were, in one take during a session
in the kitchen. The kitchen is still, in spite of the expanding
instrumentation, a consistently favorite space for The Moonband to
work in. In an extreme case. Three years in a tiny spaceship.

Many may wonder why the lead vocals alternate throughout the album.
The Moonband don't. Why should they? The two songwriters, Houston
and Mondbasis, handle the majority of singing duties while being
backed by Katerina Kirková. Meanwhile, Andy Armstrong
plucks his large bass and Elena Rakete merrily slaps her old
cardboard box, which once contained James Joyce's old diaries.

"Open Space" is not an album made to take the charts by storm.
Instead it's more of a message in a bottle, being sent into space,
hoping to encounter like-minded friends in the abyss.
