Lunar Magus

(Members From Fugazi, Fidelity Jones, Metamatics, Mary Timony, Telegraph Melts, Threnody Ensemble)

Dischord 131.5

Released on January 21, 2003


Lunar Magus is a raucous culmination of compositions that span the range of heavy metal,Korean shamanism, West African drumming, techno, country and Hasidic traditions. What may seem like sacrilege to some-this band of intensely inquisitive musicians take as a challenge. A casual listen might induce an exclamation of "this sounds like a mix tape", but the mark of the band on each song is unmistakable. The dark vocal drone of "Prisoner of Light" is the flip side to the sunny western melody in "Aleatoric Chambers"; organic sounds mix comfortably with electronics as the album progresses. Founders Jerry Busher (Fugazi, Fidelity Jones) and Chuck Bettis (Meta-matics, Trance and the Arcade) are now joined by Amy Domingues (Mary Timony, Threnody Ensemble, Telegraph Melts) on this fine release.

I bought this CD for the ties with Fugazi. However it doesn't sound much like Fugazi though. It has a strange experimental sound. It is recorded well and has lots of strange electronic sounds. The singing has an almost sarcastic sound to it and most of the lyrics are sarcastic. It's a great CD to listen to if you have a good system. There is a lot of stereo effects. Support Dischord Records they're one of the few true D.I.Y. labels left.

If gay cowboys eating pudding formed a band, it would sound like this. Im not quite sure what to think about this, might be better if i were still under the influence.
