Procedure In A Case Of Breakdown

Welcome to Majmoon

Release 2012

„Procedure In A Case Of Breakdown“
Im Dezember 2012 erschien das neue Album der Band, das komplett live und ohne Overdubs im Blubox Studio, Troisdorf, gemeinsam mit Guido Lucas an den Reglern, eingespielt wurde.

Direkt. Intensiv. Unverfälscht. Die Idee zu diesem Konzept stammte von Guido Lucas, der die erwähnten Schlagworte in der musikalischen Aussage der Band wiederfand; denn der Sound von Majmoon wird durch einen hohes Maß an Improvisitation geprägt – folgt also vor allem dem Gefühl der Musiker zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt. Diese sowohl kraftvollen als auch äußerst fragilen Momente hält das kommende Album in kompromissloser Direktheit fest.

 

 

What is MAJMOON ?

MAJMOON is a big bleeding heart.
MAJMOON’s songs tell stories; they open up a world which to delve and lose yourself in. They tell of remnants of war, anonymity in a concrete city, decaying death and a love for love. Thumping thrusting drums, glimmering guitars and a voice calling from another place which intersperses to break it up and then disappears again as if had never been there before. The songs build up and crash, they move like waves back and forth, back and forth. These are dark moments in history and personal epiphanies. The album centers around the notion ‘life is a snapshot in time’ which is reflected in the music, the lyrics as well as in the formal translation – all songs were recorded analogue and in one take; do it and so be it. A reflection within a reflection: a closed house with doors leading to one another. Distorted sounds and Kraut moments mix together to form an amalgam of ecstastic swaying and pounding. It is all about feelings and how to detroy them. You can feel that heart bleed all over your record player. Is it CAN, is it SHELLAC is it BATTLES or is any comparison superfl uous ? To hear, to listen, to feel, is the way to approach a band such as MAJMOON. Hypnotic darkness will envelope you in velvety scratches.These are soundtracks with which to forget yourself. Their philosophy is ‘Do it yourself and Do It Together’. The individuals come together to create a large swaying animal that lurches back and forth, howling, shouting and baying at the moon searching for answers.
DIT forever bye bye.
