Moon Gogo

MOON GOGOJOY(Havalina Records/Differ’Ant)

SECOND ALBUM / JANUARY 2018

Moon Gogo is the surprising teaming of a master of the komungo, a thousand years old korean music instrument, and a singer and songwriter who knows his way around.

On one side, E’Joung-ju, a classical music player who makes the six long strings of her instrument rumble, moan or whisper. The komungo has sometimes been described as the «Chief of the Hundred Musics» and here it actually is, in turns threate­ning thunder, gentle lament or heady groove.On the other side, Federico Pellegrini, keyboard played with one finger, guitar played with not much more, hyperfuzz pedal when needed and, most of all, that kind of singing that takes you higher in three inflections.

Their second album is titled Joy. Ironically, because the emotions the album is nursing are the kind that would rather curb any joy. You’ll hear what was an anthem to north korean industry turned into an eruption of rage (Chulgang (Nowhere at a Time), you’ll hear sarcastic dancefloor hits (Joy, Sally’s Gone), you’ll hear eastern ballads turned into obsessive hip-hop (Hangukae dal (My Rihanna)) or into psychedelic backwash (the 9’24 of You Say I) … Nine tracks in total, which design a unique and unexplored musical territory.
