Moonstone Continuum is a monstrously talented band; yet, their instrumental wizardry would mean very little if not for their unbridled chemistry and their ability to craft a song while still flexing their impeccable chops. Their first album was a collection of duel guitar-driven Prog-groove songs that took listeners on an action-packed adventure from start to finish. But the bounds of a rock were too narrow for these creatives, so they expanded their scope into an entire religion known as Lunarianism, complete with sermons and scriptures.
While the marketing lessons of pedaling a morally dubious faith continue to inform how Moonstone Continuum relates to the citizenry, the band has replaced the divisive trappings of folk religionism with the burnt-down cool of Miami’s golden years. In its incarnation as Moonstone Continuum: Salon Edition, the band provides all the pomp and glitz of Biscayne Boulevard, but with a mouthful of filth washed into the gutter after a seething tropical rain. The band let go of their rock and roll chains, shed their need to shred, and focused on the groove. And like the smooth leather of a well worn penny loafer, Moonstone Continuum: Salon Edition grooves like no other.
