Moonrivr‘s debut album, Vol. 1, is a captivating journey into a distinctively out-of-time sonic universe. Created on an old analogue tape machine, the songs feature reverberating slide guitars, wonky string synths, and nimble percussive environments. Thematically diverse, the tracks range from reflections on everyday pleasures to meditations on world politics and climate change. Led by Gavin Gardiner (Juno-nominated front person of The Wooden Sky fame) and “Champagne” James Robertson, the ensemble stumbled upon something special during the early pandemic days. They joined forces with bassist Ben Whitely (The Weather Station, Basia Bulat, Julia Jacklin) and percussionist extraordinaire Lyle Molzan (Kathleen Edwards, Corb Lund), refining their sound at All Day Coconut studios. With a refreshing, magical creative process, MOONRIIVR draws from decades past while transcending the boundaries of any era.
