Boomkat product review for:

the the - Moonbug

**80-page deluxe hardback edition includes stills from the film and exclusive interview** Matt Johnson aka The The presents his soundtrack to a film by Nicola Bruce following photographer Steve Pyke on a journey to meet his childhood heroes - the men who went to the moon. Mixing newsreel samples of JFK and NASA's mission control with exquisite sci-fi electronics and evocative exotica atmospheres, the music on 'Moonbug' blends a sense of naive wonder with darker themes of peril and trepidation inherent to those pioneering space journeys undertaken by fearless astronauts. As the 2nd volume in the Cineola series, it also forms part of elusive musician, Matt Johnson aka The The's return from extended hiatus that saw him practically out of orbit for a whole decade. And, as to be expected, his new music is meticulously constructed and considered, whether it's twanging lounge vibes or deserted alien atmospheres, sashaying in anti-G from the plangent lap steel of 'Night Flight' into the marrow-freezing deep space tones of 'Electric Moonlight' and 'Sea Of Dust', or sweetly linking the two with the entry of rippling xylophone melody on 'Butterfly Wings', and the wide-eyed, heart-in-mouth synth vista of 'Earth Rise'. For sure, we'll have to track the film down, but in the meantime we'll be tracking the stars on our ceiling to this. RIYL Vangelis, Badalamenti, Schulze, Global Communication.
