Ava Luna

MOON 2 (WESTERN VINYL) The ex­ceed­ingly in­ven­tive Brook­lyn, New York, band has five mem­bers, three lead vo­cal­ists, an un­known num­ber of vin­tage syn­the­siz­ers and one crate of neo-pa­gan god­dess chants from the 1990s, which re­port­edly in­spired this fifth al­bum that imag­ines a fic­ti­tious sec­ond moon. Genre dis­tinc­tions are point­less here, and that’s a virtue: Moon 2 jos­tles and shakes with polyrhyth­mic en­ergy as Ava Luna shrinks the gap be­tween in­die rock and space funk. “Ev­ery sci-fi movie has a night­club,” singer Becca Kauff­man ex­plained in a press re­lease. “These are the songs in that night­club.”
