Get Fresh w/ Moon Magnet Supergroup … Moonhammer

Moon Hammer

You know how Young Money is a supergroup and record label? We decided to do just that and started a Moon Magnet Collective band named Moon Hammer (after our infamous drink). The group consists of 12 people from different bands and we just recorded our album’s first single. Our first show is opening for déCollage April 27th 9pm at Syntax with a slew of heavy heavy jazz cats.

Get Fresh

Hi moon magneteers, April 27th is déCollage’s first show in 5 months while they’ve been mixing up the ACTUATOR album. To celebrate Reed’s birthday we’re throwing a one of a kind immersive & interactive art experience to razzle all the senses. A scent architect for nose enthusiasts, a blindfolded toothbooth with a touch artist that will brush teeth (has anyone besides your mom ever brushed your teeth?). Tastes provided by Syntax featuring the classics: Cosmic Pineapple & Moon Hammer. Visuals by all attendees: you are the art if you want to hang around the eye gazing booth. déCollage’s new theatrical show is based on Finding Nemo (complete with swimming lessons and life rafts). The night will end with a dance party/DJ set by Maria Kohler from Kitty Crimes.

DRINK THE KOOLAIDE

WHAT’S NEW?

Magnetize Music Video Premier
~~~~~~~~~~~~

The blog Indie Rock Cafe is premiering the music video for déCollage’s Magnetize later this week. Here’s a private link to see it before anyone else. Magnetize was written the last night of UMS between 3am and noon. The song and video feature members of Man Mantis, Rose Quartz, Ancient Elk, Kitty Crimes, The Other Black, Sound of Ceres, Rubedo, & Retrofette.

We’re spotlighting a new artist every week and decided to have King Eddie as the first. Reed is co-producing his 2nd album at Moon Magnet and we released the 1st single, “Killer”, on our Soundcloud today, stream it here. The album is taken straight from experiences in virtual reality and inspired by the 360 degree format.

This week, Oko Tygra, and Blake Brown & The American Dust Choir are flying out from Colorado to play what New York calls the “Music Marathon”. Denver label, Holy Underground is curating two stages throughout the week featuring the likes of Brothertiger and StaG.
Oko Tygra is lead by the intrepid Denver staple, Joshua Novak, who recently was placed in the top 20 of 560 bands in The Denver Post’s Best of The Underground. Oko Tygra is Novak’s dark and dreamy counterpart and they “just finished recording two songs with Wilson Helmericks from Snake Rattle Rattle Snake, which (they) plan on releasing on a 7” sometime within the next couple of months. The songs explore apathy, youth, and learning to let go of ghosts.”~ Joshua Novak. Blake Brown recently released “Three” after Patrick Riley of Tennis put him in contact with Roger Moutenot who has produced and engineered artists like Lou Reed, Yo La Tengo, Gillian Welch, etc. “Three” is an indie Americana EP Consisting of three songs.
