While mixtapes are typically reserved for rappers and bedroom producers, Brighton-based band Moon > Sun (pronounced Moon Over Sun) decided it was the best format to release their latest body of work. Like their approach, the trio’s music is just as unconventional. A disparate mix of broken samples, garbled beats and loopy vocals, their second official release, Mixtape #1, changes tempo like a mechanic changes tires. While it’s not exactly the most cohesive collection of songs, it does present an intriguing look at the far corners of electronic music.
Mixtape #1 will be released on cassette this June via Little L Records. Watch some glitchy, Jack Waghorn-directed visuals for the tape above and check out the tracklisting below.
