Rusted Rail release The Trees, The Sea In A Lunar Stream, the debut album from Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon on 1st May.
It is with great pleasure that Rusted Rail can announce the release of “The Trees, The Sea in a Lunar Stream” by Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon. An Irish duo made up of Aaron Hurley and Scott McLaughlin, their music combines many elements from avant-folk to shoegaze, modern composition to indie rock.
“The Trees, The Sea in a Lunar Stream” is their debut album under this guise, following an acclaimed album “In a Light” under the moniker Snowmachine on Deserted Village and a 3” EP “Through a Forest Only” as Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon on Rusted Rail. Recorded in England and Ireland, this album combines avant singer-songwriter moves with a contemporary classical sensibility as songwriter Hurley and multi-instrumentalist McLaughlin conjure music from vocals, guitars, piano, cello, glockenspiel, bass guitar, melodica, double bass, harpsichord, vibraphone and electronics. An ambitious recording with many experimental textures, Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon veer from rustic folk to glacial atmospheres, from haunted songs to spooked shoegaze soundscapes.
The album is housed in a hand-assembled and hand stamped recycled card sleeve.
Release Date: May 1st 2010
