12" LP - Released 10/20/2015 on Moon Glyph Records
"Lovely new vinyl transmission from 3 Moons, a heaving dose of refined rustic psychedelia and avant folk. Stunning document of chiseled and churned gutter country/ acid acoustic transcendentalism."
-Lighten Up Sounds
"Humming electronics and rumbling walls of feedback [transition]] to winding, brooding folk with slow paced plucked guitars and male / female vocals being sung in haunting unison."
"Lavish washes of instrumentation give way to beautifully written folk tunes""
"It would appear that blues music has seen its final day long ago but in fact it is still very much alive, just in a different form and 3 Moons makes that apparent on this LP. On ‘Astronomy of Dreams’ the blues are infused with an array of syrupy psychedelic atmosphere. Traditional structure takes a back seat in favor of more prog forward, slow moving free form jams that build with cosmic intensity."
from: [sic] MAGAZINE
"The visionary Astronomy Of Dreams is an olde worlde, dog-eared kind of record, one that tells of a series of fascinating alternate histories."
"deep ley lines intersect on the paths of myth, religion and the cosmos"
"mesmeric, sleepy psyche-folk harmonies"
"creeping retro-futurist synth playing off against buzzing low-end"
"all over the temporal map"
"solemn piano providing stability to the misfiring and foreboding electronics, the doomed combination conjuring the band playing on as the Titanic sinks – except this ship’s a hovercraft and it’s being overrun with Sentinel squid."
"acoustic-led freak-folk excursions",
"meandering strum into an undertow of dangerously sad strings and an extended passage of drones and experimental oscillations"
from MOON GLYPH:
ASTRONOMY OF DREAMS" is a distillation of multiple dimensional reality levels, made audible here, but reflecting back to the celestial mechanisms, symbols, and beings of Beyond. Touching upon secret technology, alter-messiahs, aliens, planetary forces, and personal magics, A.O.D
. is as varied and unpredictable as a powerful dream, and it is the perfectly condensed survey of the songscape of interests 3 MOONS has been excavating for the past 3 years. Harmonic male/female vocals, drift, blast, psychedelic primordial soup, free form improvisation, and finely executed song-crystallization are all represented magnificently. In “Mars in Phrygian”, and “Mercury in Hypophrygian,” ancient Greek musical modal technology is deployed to invoke useful aspects of these planetary forces, based upon an arcane system of inter-disciplinary correspondences (for more on this, see: psyoprecordings.blogspot.com/2014/06/blog-post.html)
. “H.A.A.R.P.” was originally was written for a crypto-environmental Vaudevillian paranoid comedy play / folkloric public service announcement (psyoprecordings.blogspot.com/p/milking-clouds.html
) put on by a group of radical mutants in Minneapolis, and “This Old Christ” was brought on by a weird encounter with Lee Scratch Perry in L.A
. “Smoke from the Well” takes us into smoke damaged American ghost conjuring while “Nazi Zuni Lulu Annunaki” might trigger the recovery of lost memories of UFO rides and close encounters. The Album is a psychic core sample of a dream planet in some alterdimensional cosmos here to augment our perspective in this dubious reality.
