Lunar Galleon is a collection of 'songs' recorded in 2008. Paint and Copter create songs via a process of continued improvisations that later get edited and overlayed in order to create apparent compositions. These edited compositions are then re-learned by the band for live performances. This album contains a wide assortment of textures, from pure ambient pads to hard-driving disco beats, to atonal grooves. However, there is alway an underlying song or groove that keeps the music together. With guest vocalist Mae Starr, Lunar Galleon alternates male and female vocals that allows for an expanded palette.
