  • Moulettes - Constellations

    Having constantly been on the road for 4 years and enchanting crowds at Festivals as varied as Cropredy to End of the Road, Moulettes are steadily becoming regarded as one of the most exciting and original bands of the decade. Nominated for Best Group in Alternative BRIT Awards and Winners of Best Band category of Spiral Awards 2013, they now are launching their astronomically epic third album 'Constellations' into a musical atmosphere that rarely sees such accomplished musicianship, storytelling and song craft working so harmoniously together. By exploring new blends of rock, pop, classical and folk music they have commanded respect by renowned players and DJs around the UK, including Bob Harris and Cerys Mathews. The 'Constellations' sessions saw Herbie Flowers (Lou Reed, David Bowie), Arthur Brown (God of Hellfire), Emma Richardson (Band of Skulls), Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets) and The Unthanks join the band in the studio. 'Constellations' is out June 2nd on Navigator Records (home to Lisa Knapp, Bellowhead, Fiona Bevan, Paper Aeroplanes, Oysterband and many more).
    This week's leftfield out-of-nowhere entry on the UK midweeks is this thoroughly amazing album by world music / alt-folk group Moulettes. It's very modern sounding while retaining all the classic elements of the music they draw from. Listen:

    It seems from their Facebook they've had an active chart storming campaign via HMV and indie stores. It's not high on Amazon or downloads.

    The single Lady Vengeance features backing from the legend Arthur Brown and Band Of Skulls' Emma Richardson.
