STS9's boutique record label, 1320 Records, proudly presents A Place Behind the Moon, the new full-length studio release from BIG GIGANTIC (September 1, 2010 / 1320 Records).
A Place Behind The Moon explores a unique mixture of electronic and acoustic styles, clearly defining the vision that brainchild and saxophonist/producer, Dominic Lalli, and drummer, Jeremy Salken both conceived and mastered. This sophomore effort is the strongest statement to date by Big Gigantic and it effortlessly combines saxophone and syncopated drum rhythms with intoxicating, intertwining electronic undertones, truly bringing a unique sound to the evolving, electronic genre. A Place Behind The Moon demonstrates how Big Gigantic successfully delves deep into the future of electronic music, while staying in touch with their own musical roots, to ultimately create a history all their own.
A Place Behing the Moon will be available for free download September 1st on www.1320records.com. In addition, APBTM will also be available for purchase on iTunes, with purchased copies including higher quality mp3's, as well as a bonus track featuring a first-time studio collaboration with STS9.
