Drink or Die Records / Headdress Records

Love Moon is a psych-sludge band from Oakland, CA. Bred in the Midwest, Love Moon relocated from Indianapolis to The Bay Area in the Summer of 2014. Having established a national basement reputation with their previous band, Male Bondage, Love Moon (named after the now out of print Male Bondage LP) is poised to annihilate West Coast eardrums with superfluous amplification and celestial catchiness. With influences taken from vintage heaviness (The Melvins, Black Sabbath) mixed with more contemporary reflections (MBV, Torche) Love Moon creates a wall of noise that sounds oddly familiar but remains otherworldly. Tour-hards by nature, it is inevitable that Love Moon will eventually be hauling an excessive number of amps into your town, drinking most of the beers, and leaving a weird, foggy, but ringing memory in your ears and hearts.

Track Name: 19 Hours in Portland
hope that
distance
makes the difference
six weeks, never sleep
I can't leave everything
which is the flesh?
which is the cancer?
I can carry myself
road maps
broken paths
no compromise
days past
cold flash
every sunrise
Track Name: Born Ready
lay in bed for weeks
how'd you get here?
these dreams are bleak
they don't own you
I know I've failed
again and again
where do you go
to forget?
buried in myself
can't call for help
frozen in step
locked into death
give me something to need
give me someone
give me air to breathe
I can't breathe
Track Name: Starstuff
I have a death wish I thought I outgrew
The methods you left with I couldn't outdo
The message you gave crawled up my spine
Glued itself to my mind
I don't want to know that you're alone
Peace in the grave / no rest in my head
Nothing is quiet now that you're dead
Slam into reverse / erase the stain
Half of a memory / twice the pain
Track Name: Tortured Mess
Torpid days / wasting away
Ancient age / weaknesses slain
Tortured mess / laid to rest
Old Crow's doom / death's vacuum
