If you like it, please go buy it.
Online, we recommend Insound, emusic or directly from the artist or their label. Locally, we recommend Schoolkids Records or Bull City Records.
Most Mp3 samples are only available for a limited time, usually a week or two. If there is something you missed, and it is currently unavailable or out of print, please let us know and we can see what we can do.

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

This is the first of a few Banter Records posts.
I was sent the demo tapes of Indian Moon, who have a release due out this summer, and was immediately drawn to the slow intimate folk-like music that filled my head. Like the image above, I see slow moving origami shapes, similar to the video for Bowl of Oranges by Bright Eyes, but simple plucks of the banjo and guitar, intimate chimes and piano, low, but eerie vocal stylings that are in the vein of Gary Jules, and on Sleeping With His Gun, a vision of Kurt Cobain, but with a front porch feel. Now some may find that sacrilegious, I find it my first response.
A real highlight in listening to these tapes was the track In Good Company. This track features a lovely creature's voice accompaning our singer, forging in my mind, an intimate and twisted moment in time that takes the listener to a meadow at dusk, with fireflys and crickets serenading our lovers as they lay beneath a hushly veiled night sky.
Unfortunately, as of right now, I couldn't find much information about Indian Moon, other than they have a myspace account and our singer makes a declaration that he could not, "do it without these guys: emily neveu, dave pettijohn, dave nardini, kevin barr, doc davidson, jeremy scott, jackson milgaten, tree."
Be on the look out for this release and future writings here about Banter Records. Sample a few tracks from Indian Moon below and get a few more on their myspace.
