The Most Powerful Telescope In The Universe: The Moonlight's Fair Tonight

It's a nice concept. Assemble a group of musicians and shuttle them off for the weekend to a secluded woodland cabin somewhere in the woods of the Pacific Northwest to create an album on the spot. The Most Powerful Telescope In The Universe recorded their full length album The Moonlight's Fair Tonight in November 2007 and November 2008.

The Most Powerful Telescope In The Universe: The Moonlight's Fair Tonight

The The Moonlight's Fair Tonight is a lo-fi drones driven psychedelic record that sounds great on vinyl, with warm keyboard washes lounging on top of the drums that were recorded with the natural echo of the cabin as a not-so secret ingredient. Melancholy rules in the lyrics for songs like Window Wine and it's boozing sister track Anything for A Drink, but the best is saved for last when the band slows down for Low-lying Clouds.

The Most Powerful Telescope: Michael Bond, Tim Heyl, Andrew Hagood, Andrew Kroner and Michel Winters
