Life is always better with a soundtrack, and time spent hard at work in the office is no different. Therefore, coming your way every Tuesday will be album of the week; a release we can't contain our excitement for or a record we have been reluctant to take off repeat since its first play. We’ll be putting the time in to explore the world of new releases on a quest to bring you the best. While we’re at it, just because we’re feeling generous, we’ll be digging deep into our collections and giving classic albums the airplay they deserve.
Somewhere in a parallel universe The Moonlandingz are just another pop group whose songs appease the wants on needs of the radio; right here on earth however, they are sound tracking on alternative reality. While it’s easy to assume The Moonlandingz are cut form the same soiled cloth as close affiliates Fat White Family, the two bands possess differing make ups in their DNA. One smoothers its self in the sordid essence of 21st century society while the other bounces around the final frontier in an intoxicated manner, with its latest terrestrial expedition returning home brandishing the band’s debut LP, Interplanetary Class Classics.
Take a collection of smoky riffs and sticky synths, slap them both together with the outlandish wordplay of front-man Lias Saoudi, and you’ll find yourself in possession of the co-ordinates to the universe where album was dreamed up. Strap yourself in, space travel is a bumpy ride after all.
