Moving Statues 'You Look Like You've Seen a Ghost'
Release Date - December 2nd 2022
Format - Cassette/Digital Download
Moving Statues is a new musical duo comprised of Rusted Rail labelmates Brian Kelly (So Cow) and Keith Wallace (Loner Deluxe). After 20-plus years of friendship and musical research they reckoned it was about time they recorded some music together. Their multi-instrumentalist collaboration kicked off in late 2019 and originated as a non-pandemic project although file-sharing and email overdubs were exchanged during that time. They recorded more than enough songs for a full length release - this is that album. A close listen will reveal a musical project that spans diverse musical touchstones such as hook-laden electro-indie rock, noisy synth pop, kosmische melodicism and spontaneous electronic composition with detours into motorik rock, slow-burning synthetic soundtracks and dubby ambient folk. The soundtrack for the winter of discontent is upon us.
