Beach Moon/Peach Moon is the songwriting vehicle and stream-of-consciousness cathartic outlet of San Francisco based musician, Robert Prisco. Originally conceived to be layers of rambling, inarticulate psychobabble about philosophy and the sea, strewn over lo-fi folk guitar and audio loops – songs just short enough for victims of the digital-era musical ADD phenomenon, Beach Moon/Peach Moon has since expanded to a full band set up. Taking influence from the likes of American Analog Set, Sparklehorse and The Microphones; intricate guitar lines interweave with off-centre drums, setting the backdrop for Prisco’s hushed vocal.
Kite Without a String
Recorded in various basements, houses and trains around New York and California, Kite Without a String features a textured, dynamically rich approach to songwriting. Feelings of unease and uncertainty underpin the record, with whispered beginnings giving way to lush post-rock crescendos. The album takes the listener on a journey chronicling the expectations and disappointments in relationships and life, while serving as a reminder not to let the world lose its light as you become older and more jaded.
