Rockets Red Glare ( )

Moonlight Desires
Blue Skies Turn Black ( )
Rockets Red Glare are no more. But thank god we have Moonlight Desires as a time-capsule to remember a time when musicians made sincere, painstaking and methodical music. From the outset of the opening bars of "Future Interior" the lead cut off of Desires, you feel an immediate rush of power from the clashing drum cymbals but the delicate almost whistfull guitars and slow plugging bass punctuate one another, dancing around one another, weaving around each other. The music of Rockets Red Glare comes together like a puzzle, they're not math rock, they're puzzle rock. Evan Clarke's vocals punctuate the musical melange like a strained instrument complementing and leading the momentum of each track with subtle accuracy. You have to hear the airtight musicianship on this recording. But the tight playing can sometime elude the listener because the band's song arrangements are so infectious and trance-y. Rockets Red Glare score big points in the originality department, forging a sound that is both unique, mysterious and pulsating. Their live shows out shadow any of their of their recordings, but since they are no more, familiarize yourself with their musical output (www.rocketsredglare.ca) and gets yr hands on some.
