‘Western Mystery Tradition’, the third studio album from Moonwalks, is out today!
The new record from the Detroit via Brooklyn trio marks a departure from the band’s DIY psych-rock roots to a more mature and polished sound. It was produced by Mattiel’s Jonah Swilley and recorded in May 2019 at Detroit’s acclaimed (and rumored haunted) Masonic Temple with Bill Skibbe (Jack White, The Kills). Pick up the LP here
“Western Mystery Tradition was conceived in the winter of 2019 amidst a polar vortex in Detroit, Michigan. At the time and in between touring, we lived together in a house on the west side that lacked a working stove and had no power in half of the building. The band - trapped indoors due to temperatures in the negatives and massive amounts of snow - drew inspiration from our isolated state amidst a bleak Michigan winter.”
Moonwalks will be celebrating with album release shows in Detroit, Montreal and Brooklyn over the weekend and then heading back to the UK and Europe in July.
