Sylvan Summer Spectre by Moon Cities

Sylvan Summer Spectre, Moon Cities’ long-awaited proper follow-up to Golden Ghost Forest, has arrived in its proper timing, on the fall equinox. Like the mix it follows, it’s full of perfect, moody segues that move fluidly and unselfconsciously between genres without being showy, distracting or disturbing the spell it carefully weaves. The mix lies in that hazy, bittersweet place between seasons, between anticipation and anxiety, and embued with an uneasy, uncomfortable joy. It wouldn’t be right to call it nostalgic, because it’s about what’s happening right now, right here, on the cusp that is every moment. It’s about embracing life in all of its glorious uncertainty, about the low swampy places and the swift sunrises. A bold and brave mix. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
