New on Palmetto
Red Sky will be released June 10 on Hornblow Recordings/Palmetto Records and distributed by RED. First single 'Shot' will impact college, Triple-A, and alternative radio in May. Moon Hooch tour relentlessly and, in addition to the dates already made public, they will soon be announcing an extensive worldwide tour that will fill up 2016 and carry them straight through 2017. Over the past several years, Moon Hooch has successfully transitioned their heart-pounding, impromptu subway platform raves from New York City's underground to the main stages of music festivals and rock clubs worldwide. Having performed for tens of thousands of sweaty, raucous fans and seeing their first 2 albums regularly sit atop the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, Moon Hooch is ready to share their third album, Red Sky, with the world. Calling their sound 'Cave Music—like house music, but more primal,' Moon Hooch is a riveting combination of EDM, indie rock, hip-hop and modern jazz. Originally using just two tenor saxophones and a drummer, the Brooklyn-based band, all in their mid-20s, have expanded to include a vast array of instruments, such as contrabass clarinet, bass sax, tubax (Google 'Moon Hooch' + 'Tubax'!), EWI (Google this too!), baritone sax, soprano sax, flute, a Moog Sub 37, tablas, and even vocals. Now imagine all of these sounds fed through a system of programmed Ableton effects and blasted back through a PA turned up to 11. That's Cave Music!

The Welsh-born singer Donna Lewis is one of those rare artists whose immense success on the pop radio charts disguises an exceptional and serious musicianship and breadth of repertoire. Lewis’ new album,Brand New Day, reveals the range of her artistry, and may surprise listeners who know her only for herpop hits “I Love You Always Forever,”“At The Beginning,” “I Could Be The One” and “Love Him.” Produced and arranged by Lewis’ longtime friend DavidTorn, the genre-busting composer and producer, Brand New Day is an intoxicating set of jazz-inflected covers and Lewis originals in which she is joined by the eminent progressive jazzmusicians Ethan Iverson(piano), Reid Anderson(bass) and Dave King(drums). The album is in stores 3.10.15

The first video from This Is Cave Music features the track "EWI," which is named for the Electronic Wind Instrument that Wenzl McGowen plays on the track and in the video. In the clip, we get to see Moon Hooch derail a wedding and almost get stabbed by the groom! "This video demonstrates the social energy that music can unleash. Music can break social norms and make people perceive events from different perspectives. The destruction of social norms can lead to bizarre situations and violent outbreaks but ultimately gives people the option to reconstruct their world view. We hope the energy we put out with our music helps people transcend fear based behavior patterns and recognize the unity of everything that is," Moon Hooch sax player Wenzl McGowen tells JamBase.
