ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Moonflower is a homegrown music project by Martine Garai and James Dryden - songwriters, performers, singers, husband & wife. Their first CD, simply called Moonflower, harkens back to 1960s and 1970s pop psychedelic and looks forward by incorporating modern recording techniques and adding ethereal elements of space, time, soul - all backed by a percussive beat, atmospheric rhythm guitars and pulsating keyboards. Martine and James are joined by the vocal talents of Grace Cloyd and Tom Whitney, along with the talents of a few other welcome musicians.

Wow
I went down the list of songs presented here and enjoyed them all. I was pleasantly surprized by I am the Oz, but really enjoyed Wander Through Me and I can't seem to get Orbiting Annabelle out of my head. Mahna Mahna was hilarious and Groove the Kink was disturbing, but also quite fun to listen to. Give this album a listen. I wish I could hear the other songs here as well (Capn Bill and the Pelican, Groove Shoes, and one other I think) - I am curious to see how they sound.

The Ol' Bait Shop

Great effort in a category all by itself (especially "Mahna Mahna")
I like alternative music that's truly alternative, and Moonflower is in a category all by itself, combining folk, techno, and groovy psychedlia (with "Mahna Mahna" in my own personal heavy rotation at the moment)!

Who dropped the acid in my cd player?
I'm not going to sit here and tell you how much I like this record. I'm not going to sit here and tell you about the fine songwriting and craftsmanship that will be heard pouring out of every speaker. I'm not going to tell you how cool it is to have the sexy and seductive whisper of a beautiful womans voice in your ear. I'm not even going to tell you that the journey this record takes you on is well worth the small purchase price.

What I am going to to tell you is that there is no greater experience than driving into downtown Los Abgeles at 3:am listening to "I am the OZ" with those towering buildings approaching. Scary fucking stuff indeed!!! I loved every minute of it!!!

Dig!

An eccelectic blend of soothing female vocals and tight, spaced-out instrumental
It's been a long time since something so sweet has come out that doesn't even bother competing with the mainstream - yet seem so refreshing at the same time. It's also hard to believe that music this so well-written and well-produced was recorded in a home studio by unknown musicians. There's an addictive quality to this music - which can easily be categorized as space rock/space pop, somewhat along the lines of Stereolab, but a bit more accessible - and I had trouble letting it go after one or two listens. I wish there was more music like this, unpretentious, fun, not taking itself so seriously—and so musical and spirit-lifting at the same time. My favorite tracks? I like all of them, but I am the OZ, Wander Through Me, and Orbiting Annabelle are especially well-done. It's difficult to find anything negative to say about this CD. Good job, Moonflower. Please make more music like this for all of us. - Reggie MacDonald, Dig magazine

funky groovy
This CD has some really cool funk and groove tunes. "I am the OZ" uses samples from the movie to really cool effect. "The Pelican 'n Cap'n Bill" is a classic 60's style ballad, complete with female background vocals. Moonflower's version of the vintage "Mahna Mahna" song is hilarious, slipping in subtle and not so subtle rhymes (an enama!) to create a memorable tune to sing along with. "Groove Shoes" is reminiscent of 70s funk tunes that sing about material things and their importance to living large!

Jesse Roberts

Refreshingly unique, yet gounded and tunefully accessible
In a music market increasingly bulging with me-too pseudo-diva's and angst-ridden poseur-rock pretensions, listening to the eponymously titled debut by Moonflower is enormously refreshing. Though technically a modern pop CD, the quirky lyrics and winking performances make it feel refreshingly retro. It is tunefully accessible; borrowing heavily from 60's psychedelia, kitsch lounge, burlesque and guitar rock, largely wrapped in a simple unpretentiousness that draws me ever further from today's fashionably disingenuous earnestness.
The standout track is the gorgeously emotive "Orbiting Annabelle", a eyes-wide-in-a-dark-place lullaby with Beatles-esque musical swirls, it ends on a fragmented sigh and I do the same every time I listen to it. Most of the other tracks are worthy of your attention, too.
Moonflower is a CD that rewards repeated listens, as the densely layered arrangements reveal new sonic treats each time it's played.

ARUALYHPRUM

Music for the futuristic and wonder minded generation
This CD was filled with peace n love. Like totally 60's but sounding more like futuristic music with it's quirky lyrics and it's amazing allure of humming instruments. The perfect soundtrack for any movie! It's d'groovy, d'funky and d'monic.

--JED

Trippy and Fun
Trippy and fun, sonic and tight, upbeat yet relaxing, atmospheric, a good spin!

Candie Girl

Spank tabulous
When I first listened I was sent back to the early seventies. It was noticeably unique in comparison to today's pop and rock music. Though, the world of music may go in circles, Moonflower has definately brought yesterday's music into the 21st century. It's good to hear refreshing rhythm's, and quirky overtones. I laugh at every Manha manha, over and over with every listen. I groove with every move in the sexy melodic rhythm. LOVE IT!
