Endless hours on the road in support of Mountains Beaches Cities allowed for reflection and collaboration like never before. The band, who all split song-writing duties, found themselves sharing personal experiences with one another, opening up about relationships, and becoming very aware of how powerful the human bond can truly be. This realization is heard throughout Moon Taxi’s third and most relatable album to date, Daybreaker. “To me it’s an album about facing the unknown, starting something new and realizing that the relationships you have with other people are what get you through life,” notes guitarist Spencer Thomson.
Recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, Daybreaker was produced by Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse, Tom Waits, James Bay) and is comprised of eleven tracks that showcase exactly why Moon Taxi have become known as THE live band. For the first time since inception, all five members were together in the studio, performing and rehearsing as a band rather than self-producing bits and pieces at home. “As a whole, Daybreaker sounds like a performance to me,” says keys player Wes Bailey. “You can hear fingers moving, breathing and all the other subtle sounds that one would hear at a live performance.”
The album opens with the stadium ready first single ‘Year Zero’ and immediately envelopes the listener with echoing oh’s and ah’s, a swooning chorus, and soaring guitar riffs. ‘Year Zero’ is the perfect live sing-a-long; it’s meant to be heard with arms up, eyes closed, and bodies swaying in the warm summer air. “This album has summer vibes all over it,” says frontman Trevor Terndrup. The first song that was unveiled ‘All Day All Night’ is an excellent representation of that and is already making its mark with festivalgoers. “I want the listener to feel like they have stayed up all night with someone and that they are the only ones in the world experiencing the new day dawn,” he says.
Daybreaker continues to glide effortlessly from track to track each building upon the sentiment of the last. Mid album gem ‘Make Your Mind Up’ is the perfect juxtaposition of upbeat hooks and heartfelt lyrics, while closer ‘Rooftops’ shows a softer more intimate side to Moon Taxi, lending itself to be the soundtrack of a midnight rendezvous. From start to finish, Daybreaker is sure to leave fans feeling more connected to the band than ever before.
“When we release a new album, we enter a new chapter in our story; an experience we share with our fans. When the day breaks and the sun rises, changes happen and the world we know illuminates. That’s the same kind of effect we hope to achieve when we share new music.” – Wes Bailey
Daybreaker will be released nationwide on October 2, 2015.
Based around a studio project involving The Shady Horns (Soulive), Joe Tatton (The New Mastersounds), Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk)
and Joey Porter (The Motet/Juno What?!) as well as some of Denver’s finest local talent (members of The Congress, Fox Street All Stars, Kinetix, Rebel Tounge, Devon Parker, Convergence) Analog Son will released their self-titled debut in the spring of 2014.
“some funky, trippy jazz-funk from an awesome set of players.”- Joe Tatton
This funky brainchild was born at Scanhope Sound in fall 2013. While Josh and Jordan had conceptualized this project for years, much of the composition was impromptu as each guest musician brought their own unique brand of artistry to the table stirring up a sizzling musical melting pot.
Their first single, “Analog Island” showcases the unmistakable articulation and harmony of Ryan Zoidis and Eric Bloom(The Shady Horns) as their melodies naturally integrate with Josh and Jordan’s rhythmic chemistry and vision to create a fresh funk-fusion project.The end result takes advantage of modern production and technology while using the finest vintage equipment and tape machines to fuse together both classic engineering and modern musicianship.
This studio finesse translates effortlessly into the live setting. In their short existence, Analog Son has supported The Funky Meters, Trombone Shorty
& Orleans Avenue, The New Mastersounds and Orgone at some of Colorado’s premiere venues. Live audio engineer, Joe Michaels (The Rolling Stones; Larry Graham; Blood, Sweat and Tears), immediately remarks on the authentic funk revival Linit and Fairman have managed to pull off. He states that “mixing these guys is like pure funk heaven....reminds me of my Larry Graham days!”Analog Son’s debut album will be available April 1, 2014 and the CD release party will take place at Cervantes’ Other Side on March 28 with special guests.
The band’s versatile sound has given them the opportunity to share the stage with a diverse list of acts that include The Revivalists, Matisyahu and Elephant Revival and have played an impressive list of Colorado venues including the Fox Theatre, Boulder Theater, Ogden Theater, Bluebird Theater, Cervantes Masterpiece and The Belly Up Aspen.
