What happens if you take one of Germanys best-known Post Rock bands, and mix it up with one of Russias best known Post Rock bands? That's right, you get a Split EP full of surprises. Not just a compilation of tracks, Black Moon Empire is more than that, as the title track blends their unique styles into a single track, which winds along bend and curvess, culminating in a Post Rock eargasm.Click here to order CD or MP3!
Hailing from Moscow, Mooncake are different from most "western bands".
They don't tour the world, however they have shared stages with Caspian, Explosions in the Sky, God is an Astronaut. They don't try and imitate what's happening within the genre, they stay true to their music. A delicate balance between catchy melodies and emotional scapes, their music is as identifiable as it is encouraging. They compose their tracks based on their experiences themselves, and find an audible output the perfect way to transpose that to the listener.
Mooncake has known C.U.T.E. for a few years, and was more than ready to participate in a Split EP, in advance of their upcoming new album.Visit the Mooncake website!
After speaking to a couple of bands towards the end of 2010, we realised that we may be able to help small and yet unknown bands with their plans. As most bands don't start with a bang or a big budget, it can be difficult for them to get onto a label. Although there are a few labels out there that really dig Post Rock, they of course can't take every band on. That's where Oxide Tones hopes to help. Having been in the business for a while, Oxide Tones has managed to gain quite a network of people, from labels, distributors, shops, pressing plants etc. Using that network, we hope to help bands get a "foot in the door".
