Moon Orchestra You'll Know When You Get There
- Words: Rob Riddle
- Label: Db
Moon Orchestra makes music for chill travelers and dramatic soundtracks to extreme lounging and dreams of a perfect getaway. "Moving on Out" sets the mood, and even though the tempo pushes, full strings and a floating guitar loop mesmerize more than excite. The slow luminescence of "Eastern Lights" leisurely culminates in a driving rhythm with forward dub influences. Jon Platou Selvig's splendid blend of jazz sensibilities and relaxing atmospheres conjure in-between-adventure times, with preludes of spy-oriented tension ("the Valley") that lead to light Latin fun ("Mystic Brew") and bursts of calm stasis ("Sorcery"). A nice little trip for sure, with a pleasant view and enough changes along the way to make it worth the while.
