CUE DOT SERIES - CUE DOT 006:
Moth Effect, is an instrumental electronic music project by Andy Le Gresley. Andy has been making music as Moth Effect since the mid-2010’s using processed guitars, loops and synths to create a spaced-out mix of beats, drones and melodies.
‘Hovering,’ was produced during 2020. Infused by his love of Kosmische Musik, New Wave and anything that stays on one note for too long. It features nine tracks, covering chugging melodies and sinister drones, heavy self-oscillations and spacey ambience.
We’re thrilled to share this latest collection from Moth Effect as the next milestone in the Cue Dot Series.
"With Hovering, Moth Effect has crafted an intelligent and bold album, one that wonderfully fuses psych, electronica, space-rock and kosmische. Ultimately though, at its core this is a pop record and a damn good one at that." - Gordon Rutherford, Louder Than War
"Sometimes you just have to listen to an album to experience the majesty, the joy, the feeling, the power, the quality, the size, the intricacies. Hovering is that sort of album. You should listen to it." - Bobby Gant, Iniquitous Glory
"There is nothing throwaway or disposable in Hovering’s passion for the more electronic side of pop music yet it truly does manage to carry throughout a wonderful sense of fun and happiness . A fine balance between the playful and progressive and an album that leaves you in a far better state that when you first hit play." - Simon Tucker, At The Barrier
"Slathered in kosmische synths and enough post-punk guitars to make veteran John Peel fans shudder under their blankets, it's terrific fun" - Bob Fischer, Electronic Sound

This album caught my eye and ear as someone who grew up living in a new town in Hertfordshire and now lives in new city in Egypt. The album encapsulates a sense of the doomed promise of such ventures, and the way in which such synthetic managerial ways to constructing a culture through architecture always sow the seeds of their own failure. The music resonates this duality perfectly - the beauty of the utopian dreams that birthed such cities, but the grim experience of their realities. nujumi
So wonderfully put together you don't realize the ingenuity behind some of the sound sources until you read the liner notes. Another fine addition to an increasingly expanding Radiophonic-like world. Anthony Childs
