Mooncake biography
MOONCAKE is not a Chinese culinary folklore. This is a Moscow band that mixes two guitars, cello, bass and drums into rattling blend of sounds. The music of MOONCAKE resides in the state of permanent development and, moreover, it is a personal experiment of each of band's members. Formed two years ago, MOONCAKE took direction to guitar-driven Post-Rock (with influences ranging from GY!BE to 65DAYSOFSTATIC). Self-released single "More Oxygen, I said!" (2007) recieved numerous positive feedbacks among instrumental music lovers. Debut "Lagrange Points" album was released in May, 2008, with brighter musical palette (cellist added) and again by D.I.Y. paradigm. Live performances (with videoart attached) present immense power of the band and clearly show their maturity and professionality. (stuff from MySpace was used)

Review by Prog-jester

3 stars Debut effort from Russian indie/post-rockers MOONCAKE was a pleasant surprise in the world of instrumental music more than a year ago. Subtle and simple, melodic and catchy, 3 short tracks in EXPLOSIONS' vein had free-to-download status for some time, and the best from them, 'Rain in the Astray', has been re-recorded recently for band's debut full-length album, 'Lagrange Points'. You better start there, and if you like LP, you'll have to check this one too. Not essential, but Post-Rock collectors should have this one in their collections, at least in mp3. Recommended

3 stars MOONCAKE's self-released full-length debut album is yet another fact that Russian underground/indie scene needs no remorseful attitude anymore. I bet you wouldn't doubt if I've said this album was released by English/American/Japan Post-Rock bands - both record quality and musicianship level are top-notch. Forget sentiments like 'crappy recorded? at least they have no bears walking their streets any longer' that could have been in previous Russian/Post-Soviet Prog reviews. I dare to propose this album as a pattern of sound for further Post-Rock releases from ex-USSR area!

Down to music. MOONCAKE plays nice instrumental Post-Rock, nothing truly special, short (as for this genre) tracks, obvious tricks like voice samples and 'fall!fall!rise!rise!' piece structures, but if you're in love with bands like SAXON SHORE, GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT, PG.LOST, BRIGHT RED PAPER, JOY WANTS ETERNITY, JOHNNYTWENTYTHREE and especially YNDI HALDA, you should definitely give it a try. As most bands do these days, MOONCAKE has a plenty of free tracks both on their MySpace and LastFM pages (the one who seeks shall find!), so don't hesitate to check them. My personal favourities are 'Rain in the Astray' (even better than on single!), epic 'Horizons', energetic '444' and closing 'Short Stories...'. The further they go the better they be, I believe. I'm preparing my 5 stars for the possible second album of MOONCAKE, and 3.5 stars now. Recommended!
