20th Art Rock Show: Who Bit the Moon

Gitaarvirtuoos David Maxim Micic wordt ook stilaan wat bekender in ons land. Volledig terecht trouwens. De Serviër verwierf bekendheid met Destiny’s Potato en zijn drie prachtige Bilo-solo-albums.

Josh Redmond van It Djents: “In his previous works like Eco, there have been a lot of influences from genres outside of rock or metal present in Micic’s music, and this trend is continued in Who Bit The Moon. Whether it’s the Imogen Heap vibes from “Beaver Moon”, the presence of rather nostalgic electronic percussion in “687 days” or the pleasant-sounding strings sprinkled throughout, there’s enough diversity to delight even the most jaded listeners.

On top of that it’s accessible enough to appeal to fans of pretty much every genre. This fusion of elements gives it an almost post-rock vibe; I kept finding myself reminded of bands like If These Trees Could Talk and 65daysofstatic, but probably not in the way you’re thinking. It doesn’t sound like those bands per se, yet there’s definitely a shared approach to songwriting between these musicians. (…)

All in all, Who Bit The Moon is an absolutely excellent album. It brings the listener a diverse range of honestly delightful experiences, and does the whole ‘djent’ genre a true service by virtue of its incredibly skillful composition and delivery. I have a few nitpicks here and there, but as a whole, Who Bit The Moon is great. Listen to it.”
