about

Two years after the successful release of “Manipulators” (Greed Recordings – 2003), Moonman is back with a brand-new album entitled “Necessary alibis”.
This time, the machines are switched off and moonman blesses us with a collection of 14 new tracks of singular and catchy indie-pop, cleverly sailing between existential hymns stuffed with interwoven melodies and patterns (“Necessary albis”, “Bunch of liars”), tortured and disturbing post-rock with luminous guitars (“Mascara and glitch”, “Victim of your own device”) and subtle acoustic ventures with glockenspiel, mellotron and cello arrangements (“Smother”, “Female democracy”, “Self-made man”).
The album closes on a quadrilogy (“Team of secret rivals”), which feeds itself as much with lively and complex instrumental post-punk as with both heavy and crystal-clear drones to offer an apocalyptic final part in while one witnesses an unscrupulous guitar fight between moonman and Lunt (Unique records) with a background of spoken word voices by Sandra (Another Record) on a magnificent poem by American writer Patrick Porter.
Coproduced by Duncan Roberts ( Dictafone, Bo...), Gilles Deles (Angil, Melatonine, Half Asleep, Dana Hilliot, Lunt…) and Moonman.
