Mooncake - Zaris EP (2010) (AWESOME !!!)
Genre : Post-rock, Russia
Mooncake is a Moscow post-rock band founded early 2006 comprised of two guitars, a bass, cello/keyboards and drums. Since then the band has made a name for itself having developed its own style and become quiet popular among connoisseurs of genre both home and abroad.
Most critics emphasize that Mooncake have successfully revised such conservative genre as post-rock and its clichés. In the end the band came up with its own style and sound that one can easily recognize. Their tracks are very atmospheric complying fast, positive and catchy melodies on the one hand and basilisk, ponderate canvases on the other. The ideal balance between rapture and grief has always been Mooncake's distinctive feature.
By now Mooncake performed at one stage together with such bands as Explosions In The Sky, Russian Circles, God Is An Astronaut, Mum, Somebody Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Dalek.
