Editorial Reviews

Originally released on Electrelane's own label Let's Rock in 2002, `Rock It To The Moon' received much critical acclaim and established Electrelane's as a unique and powerful band. Shunning conventions and expectations, it is a primarily instrumental record that builds with passion, intensity and atmosphere at every twist and turn. `Rock It To The Moon' is a pulsating, spiralling and emotive beast where dirty metal-derived guitar riffs, heavy bass-lines, omnipresent intoxicating Farfisa organ and a centred, building drum beat weave and climax in a thrilling nu-wave, garage-rock and Krautrock-esq combined assault. At once avant-garde, yet also toying gently with a pop aesthetic - the animated organ on `Film Music' and `Blue Straggler' and the chugging guitar, hand-clapping and harmonising on `Spartakiade' - each track is unforgettably infectious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Electrelane - 'Rock It To The Moon' (Mr.Lady) January 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Coming to you straight out of Brighton, UK. 'Rock It To The Moon'' is the all-female electronic / Avant Garde band's first release, as they have one other that came out as it's follow-up. The gals were supposed to play a pub in my area fairly recent, but the gig was apparently cancelled. If this CD is any indication, they should be decent to see live.T racks that I thought carried some weight were "Gabriel" (nice keyboard work), "Blue Straggler",the krautrock-ish "Long Dark" and "U.O.R.". Line-up: Mia Clarke - guitar, Rachel Dalley - bass, Verity Susman - keyboards and Emma Gaze - drums. Might appeal to fans of Sonic Youth, Stereolab, PJ Harvey and KaitO. A very decent find.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hardly groundbreaking, but worth a listen. April 12, 2004
By skytwo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This insturmental British quartet seems largely known for the number of bands to which they've been compared. I think the comparisons are a little overblown, but the album more than anything resembles a slightly unfinished work. Without vocals (there are some small exceptions here and there), the group just doesn't really manage to carve out its own niche. It lacks a unique sound that lets you know that you're definitely NOT listening to something by another group.
All told, if you enjoy the samples, you'll probably enjoy the album in its entirety. While consistent, it's a real mishmash of electronic, punk, and occasionally ambient sounds with a little bit of vocal harmonizing here and there. Not exactly upbeat, not exactly downbeat. It's a little bit of everything without standing out from the crowd-- which makes it difficult to give Electrelane's debut a higher rating.

4.0 out of 5 stars rockin' indeed June 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
so I read the other review, and mostly agree with what was said, I think comparisons to Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emporer! are a bit of a stretch---this band resembles early Stereolab much more than either of the two previously mentioned bands--its a hard rocking interplay of rhythmic guitar groove, feedback-laced good times--a great background, rocking type of album--wear it jogging, listen to it in the car on a road-trip--you won't be humming catchy riffs per se, but you will tap your foot in time and love the energy--its got that feedback lounge type of feel that makes one think that the girls grew up listening to Stan Getz just as much as the Velvet Underground--Bridgette Bardot followed by Sonic Youth--Esquivel with equal parts Ramones--well...you get the idea

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool August 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
All in all I liked the album, although the other reviews were correct in that it does not do much to be unique.
Actually, I was surprised to hear riffs lifted directly from other bands, like Hot Butter, and even Devo. So if you're into that kinda stuff, I would suggest you check this one out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Snapshot of a band in development October 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Formed in Brighton in 1998, this feminist avant rock four-piece set up their own record label with backing from Sony a couple of years ago. A young band, guitarist Mia Clarke was still preparing for her A-levels during the recording of this debut album. They had already put out a couple of singles on In Denial and Fierce Panda, one of which, Film Music, turns up in re-recorded form both here and on an EP which includes remixes by Echoboy, Treva Whateva and Jagz Kooner, and is where I first heard the band. Approved by The Wire, they were written up in issue 208 and tracks by them show up on Wiretapper 8 and Wiretapper 9 cover disc CDs.

Although they use modern production techniques and equipment, mixing with ProTools, the overall sound is quite retro because of their love of Farfisa organ and analogue instruments, and is predominantly instrumental despite the occasional vocal phrase emerging through the mix. Long Dark reminds one of nothing so much as Syd-era Pink Floyd, elsewhere the twangy surf guitar is redolent of Duane Eddy. However, their experimental approach and use of digital samplers puts them squarely in the twenty-first century. The music is energetic and enthusiastic and bursts out of the speakers in a long and inventive 65 minute rush, anchored by the Krautrock drumming from Emma Gaze and Rachel Dalley's relentless bass lines. 

One can pinpoint their overall sound at this point quite accurately. Create a hyperbolic graph of the Pink Floyd's sonic soundscape from their first album onwards and extrapolate forwards and backwards. Find the point 4.7 months prior to Piper At The Gates of Dawn, and there you are.
