Release show for «Peace Will Grind You Down» by Luna Honey
«Peace Will Grind You Down, the debut album from D.C. experimental quartet Luna Honey, calls to mind Leonard Cohen’s final album, You Want it Darker. Not that there are many similarities to Cohen’s sound, mind you, but “darker” is probably the best way to describe the band’s brooding and atmospheric music.»
KEITH MATHIAS, Washington City Paper
Among The Rocks And Roots
«Music as “just entertainment” is a solipsistic and fairly recent notion. Throughout the history of humankind, various forms of music have instead been tightly woven into the communities that birthed them, shaping and steering social bonds. Even if this fact has been conveniently hidden in the deepest crevices of our collective memories, helped by capitalism’s commodification of art, music as a concept outside the ludic and academically autotelic still exists in the cultures of indigenous people like the Tuvans. Their shamans perform songs primarily to heal and such music becomes a bridge between the spiritual and the physical. Richmond duo AMONG THE ROCKS AND ROOTS are one of those rare contemporary groups which successfully tap into that subliminal, metaphysical source and simultaneously reach somewhere beyond their own ids.»
