FWY! — “Any Exit”
3 / 11 / 2013
Bringing it back to the bay, FWY!’s newest slowmo drift has arrived. This is Any Exit.
Returning from last year’s gorgeous San Clemente release is FWY!’s next slowmo coastal drift, Any Exit. Pushing his minimalist palette, San Francisco’s Edmund Xavier crafts with drum machines, aqueous soft-synths, submerged bass lines & endlessly bright melodies. As a transient passenger, we watch Any Exit bloom with understated movements and intoxicating grooves; complemented by Xavier’s organic aesthetic and laid-back composition (both visually and aurally). On this more diverse affair, Xavier is equally comfortable with the bass-lead dynamism of “Exit Downtown” and the ambient fallout of “Irvine’s” sublime latter half. On Moon Glyph’s fifty-fourth release, we present FWY!’s singular trajectory and his most expansive vistas yet on Any Exit.
Brute Heart — “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”
2 / 18 / 2013
A majestic, adventurous score for the 1920 silent film “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” as penned by Brute Heart. Cassette out today.
Ninety-two years after its initial release, Minneapolis trio Brute Heart were commissioned by the Walker Art Center to construct a soundtrack for the German Expressionist film, “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”. Deftly evoking its subject matter, the score transitions from moment to movement; gorgeous, elegant viola & cello swell to tense alien landscapes to mystic passages of looping melody. It’s a style uniquely their own, one in which Brute Heart have been mining via bass, drums, viola, keyboard & their collective voices for two prior full-lengths (Brass Beads & Lonely Hunter, the latter on Soft Abuse). Few have the compositional prowess of these three & Moon Glyph is grateful to release in its entirety, their formally recorded score to this silent noir masterpiece.
M. Sage – “The Receivers Peaking”
1 / 28 / 2013
Starting 2013 with the brilliance of M. Sage. Cassette out today.
Depicted here is the raised hand of an obscured preacher, hovering above rows of urban housing. A striking concept that runs deep into the fervor and punk ethos that M. Sage has been cultivating via ambient and sound collage for years. For the uninitiated, M. Sage is a man out of Fort Collins who crafts grand, aural impressions while simultaneously running his exceptional imprint Patient Sounds. His most recent work and Moon Glyph debut is “The Receivers Peaking”, a conceptual and auditory abstraction of AM radio clips, looped field recordings, processed guitar and serene, pensive composition. As a progressive and prolific worker, M. Sage deconstructs our surroundings and shows us his shimmering utopia that could have been.

Food Pyramid & Roy Orb D.MT. – “Arp Navigators”
11 / 19 / 2012
Marking Moon Glyph’s 50th release is Food Pyramid & Roy Orb D.MT.’s brilliant new collaborative LP “Arp Navigators”. The pre-order & first single entitled “Windsong” are available at the link below. Out December 4th in an edition of 300.
“The spiritual & synthetic omniverses of Food Pyramid & Roy Orb D.MT. unite to form their majestic statement with “Arp Navigators”. The album calls to mind a great escapist wandering; one of rising mountains, luxuriant aquatic-life & surreal terrain all sought after in the name of inner-tranquility. Beginning side A is “Windsong” consisting of airy undulations & breathy new age atmospherics, staying true to its namesake. Within their wide-eyed vision is the ascending groove of “Visualizer”, the fuzzy astral traveling of “Summit Expedition” & the deep effervescence of “Corealis”. This LP of transportive tunes present a vibrant array of healing tones, bubbling motorik & celestial gazing. With much anticipation, we’re pleased to reveal Moon Glyph’s 50th release, Food Pyramid & Roy Orb D.MT.’s “Arp Navigators”.
Treasure Hunt – “Toys Unatic”
11 / 12 / 2012
Very pleased & excited to share with you the newest of the Moon Glyph family. Out today is the work of Myles Byrne-Dunhill as Treasure Hunt.
“Treasure Hunt is the moniker of Myles Byrne-Dunhill, a psychedelic collagist residing in Dallas, Texas. His newest release & debut for Moon Glyph, “Toys Unatic” is an eclectic expanse of kaleidoscopic brushstrokes, emanating the warmth of morning’s first light. The opener “One Fungi” contains loosely sewn elements that cascade into an aqueous, disorienting composition. This album fleshes out his personal sonic palette of organic sampling, plucked strings, earthy reverberations and transportive jazz. The result is a most joyous sound. Let Treasure Hunt’s vibrant odyssey affect your judgment and mold your psyche.”
Deep Earth • MP3s & A Busted Sampler
11 / 5 / 2012
Deep Earth are in need of a little support after a most unfortunate event. You can help them keep the groove alive & come away with 8 killer releases worth of tunes. I’ll let the band explain :
“Somewhere on the return trip from point A (Chicago) to point B (Portland) after our last recording session, some airline thug made short work of the Deep Earth sampler. The screen arrived to us in a seriously bad kind of way. The manufacturer has said that they don’t carry the part and the whole shebang will need to be replaced. Now there are much worse situations in the world, but there are also much better. This thing was our sampler, drum machine, sequencer, MIDI brain, and general glue that held all of the chaos together.
That being said we’re trying to raise any amount of money to contribute to the $500 price tag on the replacement. In doing so we’re putting up almost the entirety of the Deep Earth and Beyond back catalogs in MP3 format for any donation amount whatsoever via Paypal. Whatever you think is fair, and honestly, whatever you can afford. $5.00 or $5,000 and we’ll be psyched to send ‘em on over.
We’ve never officially released any of these in digital format. You name what it’s worth to you and we’ll email you 8 albums worth of jams and hopefully raise enough money to buy a replacement to make 8 more albums with!”
