Moonrises is the brainchild of Plastic Crimewave (a. k. a Steve Krakow), Libby Ramer and Ben Billington. Their tremendous sophomore album Frozen Altars absolutely destroys the competition in the ring of avant-psychedelic bands. Wrap your bad-trip damaged brain around an album that continues to reinvent and expand with every rotation. Experience intense flashbacks of 1960's British pysch and 70's krautrock. Envision the sounds of the Soft Machine, the Dead C. and This Heat trapped in a droned-out noise chamber. Tiny Mix Tapes calls them "the newest addition to Chicago's vibrant psych scene, and they take you way beyond your average wanna-be psych band. Some of the best psych music you will hear, yep (Moonrises) will pretty much amaze you. " Don't hesitate, you will want to be the one telling your friends to take this trip.
