ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brooklyn, NY based Moonraker formed in Boston during 2000 when two film students, David Moltz and Kody Akhavi, and their roommate, drummer Dan Mintzer, began experimenting with electronic music. They were joined music students Kelli Scarr and Dan Chen, and a strong musical and philosophical connection was established between the five. Musically, the band has never been easily categorized. Their multifaceted sound has been described as electronic rock or experimental dance rock. Moonraker has been compared to Björk, Portishead, Stereolab, early U2 and the Police.

Over the last two years, Moonraker has performed alongside Metric, Elefant, The Stars, Ambulance LTD, and the Broken Social Scene, developing a faithful fan base in the Northeast. The band won WBOS' Best New Band in Boston [in 2001], they receive regular airplay on college and satellite radio, and recently they were awarded Best New Band at the 2003 Boston Music Awards.

In addition to Moonraker's debut LP Nada Brahma, the band has released an EP, a live CD and the self-titled 2003 CD on Immergent Recordings.

What a great album!
Moonraker's sound has really positively evolved. The songs are great, as is the production and performance. I really recommend this album to anyone who wants to hear something smart, original, and soulful. And be sure to see them live if you can!

THis CD is special to meeeee!!!
This is a really great album. You'd never believe that the guitar player only used one effects pedal. My fiancé introduced me to it, and I had to buy a second copy after we let someone borrow it. It's that good.

Brian

good record, weird coincidence
Strangely, I also bought this record after hearing it at the Tea Lounge in Brooklyn (see next review). Moonraker should be giving them a percentage! It's a rare thing that you hear something so arresting in a coffeeshop and have to know what it is to get it, but this album is that. Great melodies, great energy, focused sound, well-recorded. I love it.

One of my alltime favorite albums
I was standing in line at the Tea Lounge in Park Slope, waiting to order a cup of coffee when I heard this brilliance over the sound system. Those kids have great taste in music. At the time the guy at the counter didn't know who it was and i was trying to guess because in one song she sounded like cat power. but then another song came on and she sounded like bjork. and in the next song she sounded like ani defranco. by that time my head was spinning because i was so in awe of this chameleon voice exuding so much raw emotion. many days later the boy who had put this album in cd player told me who it was and i was soooo happy. Anyway-- I tried to buy this album but ordered a different one. the one i got was okay but i was very sad that it was not this one. since then i have been trying to track down this album over the net. i had all but given up hope when i just finally googled the band and discovered them sitting right here. soooo happy.
This album is a must.

Tamara Turner, CD Baby


Literally, one of my "top 5 favorite" bands at CD Baby. Come find out why. It's no surprise that they've delivered another brilliant album, this time, slightly more adventuresome in the electronic direction, yet still intertwining their signature elements of downtempo, jazz, soul and trip hop. Directed and inspired by the nature of an organic groove, a pulse that somehow feels familiar to your cells, Moonraker bridges the surreal and spacious quality of dreamy colors with the earthy and grounded solidity of naturally-occuring rhythms. Although they have been compared to Bjork, Portishead, Stereolab, early U2 and the Police, there's a big unidentifiable something- a big magic something- that gives their sound a distinctive curve. Go touch the moon.

I love the melodic sounds and the guitar riffs. Really haughtingly beautiful
I love the melodic sounds and her beautiful voice. There are great guitar riffs in some of the songs. This music is hard to catagorize, its not pop or jazz but has elements both and new age sound. I hope this group becomes better known and does well.

I love this album
It flows so nicely as an album, including the symmetry of the first and second half. Here's hoping that Moonraker makes more music for us.

Unique and amazing...
Although you have to hear them play live to really understand why I so love Moonraker, their CDs are incredible, and their music inspires and soothes. A unique blend of jazz, electronica, and Kelli's amazing vocals gives this band a beautiful and distinctive sound.

laugh hard it's a long way to the bank
this cd is a gem. at times ethereal, at times rockin - it's a decent cross section of the band itself. moonraker is dynamic. they wear many hats and appeal to a wide audience. chances are good that you'll love them. be sure to check them out live. also, great cover art!
