Lunar 9 cassette- eight songs from 1998

9 Sep

Lunar 9 produced one of the newest cassettes in my collection- by 1998, most bands were handing out burned-CD demos. But what a tape it is! Some tracks are very-produced, some are lo-fi, Lunar 9 exemplified all that was good about Indie Rock in 1998. They are featured with one of the lead-off tracks on the “Redeyed” compilation CD of 1990s Minnesota Shoegaze bands, their track “Prozac Melodie’ was a huge Radio K hit. Members of Lunar 9 previously were in notable bands (Deep Shag, Shapeshifter), and some are currently (2010) still knocking it out with Blue Sky Blackout. Thanks to Jon Hunt for allowing me to post some tracks on this super-good tape.

She’s So High

Addendum 1-27-12: John has put up a bunch of well-produced Lunar 9 tracks, and designed two cool covers to boot. Get ’em here and here.
