Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Once upon no time, countless light-years from Earth, the cosmos revealed the moment had come to take action. Sonnymoon, a mystical, nurturing, peaceful planet, found itself on a collision course with Earth, whose inhabitants had a dubious history of preaching peace yet living lives of war. History had once before shown that when worlds collide, the trauma of such a collision is forceful enough to cause a massive rip in the time/space continuum, throwing all things as we know it into uncharted territory. One effect of this rip is the potential for chaos, mayhem, and complete destruction. But, as fate would have it, Sonnymoon had written it quite differently. As known on Sonnymoon, the people of Earth are able to vibrationally align with Sonnymoon through gradual contact. That which no longer serves the people will fall away, creating the Golden Age of being. This communion of vibrational frequency results in a vastly expanded collective consciousness. It is most easily achieved through the creation and sharing of music. So as all planets do, Sonnymoon created the perfect beings to self-fulfill the prophecy. From the deepest depths of the sea they called forth an energy entity to be called Anna, comprised of feminine aspects: wisdom, water, land, emotion, passion, moonlight. From the core of the sun they called forth a polar energy to be named Dane, comprised of the masculine: intelligence, fire, wind, cognition, sunlight. Together they formed the perfect celestial balance of non-duality --embodying Sonnymoon itself. Anna and Dane soon set forth as journeymen, ambassadors of their world, and were given but one mission find allies and prepare Earth for the energies of the coming planet, thereby averting catastrophe. Upon first landing on Earth, they noticed the void was vast and deep. This would be no simple task. Dane quickly found that the music Earth most often communicated via airwaves was not indicative of the wants (or needs) of the people. Meanwhile, Anna was challenged to make sense of foreign concepts such as ignorance, mediocrity, and perhaps worst of all, suburbia. But they pressed on, creating music that undoubtedly expanded the minds of all that that were ready. And in due time, Sonnymoon found a powerful ally with the team at Plug Research. Sonnymoon is part of the fertile ground by which the new and innovative springs forth. They are an army of the audible, a musical militia manned by two. There is no time to prepare sufficiently for their coming-- they have already arrived and the mass-scale invasion is imminent. For those receptive to their transmission prepare for your world to change. But fear not, Earthlings, they come in peace.

Review

''As students at the lauded Berklee College of Music, aspiring musicians are a dime a dozen, but the synergy that the duo known as Sonnymoon possesses and projects through their eclectic mix of indie, pop, R&B and electronic is exceptional.'' --Life+Times (Jay-Z's blog)

''If you have not drunk the Sonnymoon kool-aid yet, this might be the extra packet of moonbeam flavored powder that breaks down your resistance.'' --Okayplayer

''the group has synthesized familiar sounds into something fresh.'' --Pitchfork

Format: MP3 Music
No one has the pure magic of Sonnymoon. From joyous electro-pop "Greatness" to symphonic "Just before Dawn," from straight up jazz "Kali" to animal madness "Wild Rumpus," from synths, analog bass lines, guitar, drums, and sax, to sitar, violins and harp, Sonnymoon does whatever it takes to create sonic worlds that display Anna's one of a kind voice. It's tough to choose a favorite. There are 9 striking songs balanced by 3 sonic explosions. If I have to choose a single favorite it might be the "infinity" song with it's growing, building beat, lush lead AND background vocals, and extended sitar solo played more in a jazz/rock than a classical Indian style. Or maybe it's "Nothing Thought," with it's silky vocals supported by gorgeous guitar work, topped off at the end by playful synths and a wah guitar, Anna and Dane both singing, "Nee nee nee nee."

There are creative twists and turns and melodic bits that will remind you of Abby Road. You'll hear light and playful touches like "Zone 2," angst ridden soft beauty like "Universal Appeal" and clanging chaos like "Others By." Then there's future-tribal in "Watersboiled." Just make sure you listen with a good set of headphones or a very good stereo. There are layers upon layers you'll miss completely if you play Sonnymoon on your computer's speakers.

there is magic and beauty here, but...more in it's potential, than it's realization. am trying very hard to get thru this album. these are seriously talented people, but...perhaps trying to hard. too many twists and turns, when sometimes a vibe might work better. everything shifts too fast, as if it were necessary to get 20 great ideas into one song (instead of one, or several, ideas).

imho, if sonnymoon tunes more into their hearts and instincts (and makes music less with their heads), they will be a force to reckon with. right now, too much cleverness, not enough feel.

but again, beautiful moments, and enough great ideas for a 10-CD set....
