DOWNLOAD: Aloha - Moonless March (MP3)
DOWNLOAD: Aloha - Waterwheel (MP3)


"Moonless March" is possibly most in your face, immediate song Aloha has ever written. For a band known best for their intricate arrangements and atmospheres (and ever-present, otherworldly marimba), it signals a new page for their upcoming, fifth record, Home Acres, which comes out March 9th on on Polyvinyl. If "Moonless March" is the straight-away single, "Waterwheel," a song you can get exclusively above, is its gentler cousin. Both come with warm overdriven layers and cryptic, possibly apocalyptic lyrics rich in imagery.

After the record's release, Aloha will head out a series of April shows around the US. Most of those will be opened by Cincinati's Pomegranates, who worked with Aloha's TJ Lipple on their 2009 record, Everybody Come Outside. The bands visit NYC on April 17th for a show at Knitting Factory. Tickets info to come.

Is the rightmost guy a member of the band or just some creep who stumbled into the photo shoot? That hand on the shoulder is priceless.

Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
