Moon Honey

Grateful Web Interview with Moon Honey

Moon Honey, the New Orleans born quartet, is celebrating the release of their first full album, Hand-Painted Dream Photographs, with the completion of their US west coast tour.  Moon Honey’s love of the symphony and poetry is evident in the beautiful lyrics throughout this record and in the orchestrated tracks.  Violinists, harpists, horns and choirs have sat in with the band.

Moon Honey's Self-Portrait Beneath Woman's Mask Out Now

In the case of psychedelic freakrock group Moon Honey, depth is the name of the game. Whether it's in the heightened lyrics—"When Edvard was sixteen, he beamed through the flap of a mask" references painter Edvard Munch as a teenager—or the restless path of the songs, Moon Honey is utilizing the psychedelic adjective to good purpose, giving us something in the veins of both Dirty Projectors and Deerhoof but with a side of Yes and Joni Mitchell.
