ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Moonraker is a rock band based in Brooklyn, NY. The band
originated in Boston, when two film students, David Moltz and
Kody Akhavi, and their roommate, drummer Dan Mintzer, began
experimenting with electronic music. They were joined by Kelli
Scarr and Dan Chen, and immediately a strong connection was
formed between the five of them. Musically, the band has never
been easily categorized. Their sound has been described as
electronic rock and experimental dance rock; they have been
compared to Björk, Portishead, Stereolab, early U2 and the Police.
Over the last two years Moonraker has performed alongside
Metric, Elefant, The Stars, Ambulance LTD, and Broken Social
Scene, developing a faithful fan base in the Northeast. The band
won WBOS' Best New Band in Boston [in 2001], they receive
regular airplay on college and satellite radio, and recently they
were awarded Best New Band at the 2003 Boston Music Awards.
Their debut LP Nada Brahma sold 5,000 copies independently,
and their self-titled 2003 release, out on Immergent Records,
has sold over 1000 copies to date.

I adore this band. I'm so happy I was bored and lurking around CDBaby one night and stumbled across them. Everyone should have this in their Moonraker collection.

New Direction, Still Awesome
All the songs on this CD mark a departure from Moonraker's earlier stuff, yet they all rock. And I mean rock - there's more of a raw feel on this EP compared to their past dancier/jazzier/electro albums and the band feels right at home with the new styles. Excellent CD, my only regret is that there aren't more songs (or I would have given it 5 stars).

CD Baby


One of CD Baby's most recommended "bands to follow," Moonraker brings it back, once again- another mind-blowing album we can all get excited about, as if we weren't excited enough about this group's potential which they are quickly realizing. This time, they wrap up new flavors, blending them into their reputable mix of electronica, trip hop, rock and jazz. This time, we get a taste of the 80s for starters- a little more rock and a little less electronica. There are hints of the Police, early U2 (serious flashbacks of Sunday Bloody Sunday), Talking Heads and on and on. But still pulsing underneath is their core of Massive Attack/Portishead-like leaning. One thing is for certain- no matter which direction this band explores, you can be sure it will be quality. Thers's no half-ass dabblings with this group; it's either all or nothing. Time for the Parting can only be hailed as a huge success.
