“What a horrible way to begin.” I couldn’t disagree more with the opening lyrics of The Maykit’s third full length album, Moonboy. From the onset, this record has everything it takes to make a complete, well-rounded banquet for the ear. For appetizers, you’ll receive some soft, ethereal sounds and samples. You might find yourself asking how did they get a recording of angel wings fluttering through the ether, or is that the tinkling melody of broken dreams dancing through a starry night? I’m afraid there can be no answer, but for the next course your ear-palate will get a deliciously bright, well balanced mix of rocking, rolling, and swaying with a creamy dollop of this sweet, sing-along quality. By the end of the third song, “Bottom of the Ocean”, you’ll be feeling satisfied by thewell-roundedness of this recording and the beautiful mix of simplicity and subtle complications, but you’ll still be craving more. Then comes the main course of this album, “Sinking Ships”. Enter the dreamy cadence of the violin, and who’s that sing/screaming in the background, and how does he manage to so perfectly complement this melancholy jam? Oh, it’s Adam Fisher, I remember that guy, from Orbs and Fear Before the March of Flames. The course continues, with all the highs and lows one would expect from an album that starts as well as it finishes. You’ll linger over a rich, deep glass of sound-wine, and maybe get a little tipsy from the exquisite and, for a lack of a better word, experimental sounds and effects present in this album, which are so well placed that you’d hardly notice them, or the brilliant overall effect they have. And finally for desert just savor the melodious, silvery speech of the guitar and let the aftertaste of beauty, sadness, euphoria, and revelation wash over you with Moonboy’s closing song, “The Outcome”.

Now you’re probably wondering a little bit about The Maykit, like who are they, and what have they done to me? The Maykit is Max Winne, self-effacing front man, singer, guitarist, songwriter and musical samurai. He is accompanied on this album by Joel Matthews on drums, and Noah Matthews on bass and some guitar. Adam Buccholz (Drums), Dan Grant (Piano) and Noah Matthews constitute The Maykit’s live band. Also on this album are Ryan Brasher on violin, and Adam Fisher with background vocals. The record was mixed and mastered by Tim Garak at Mammoth Cave Recording Studios. Album artwork, by Andres Guzman. The Maykit has been making music since 2009, their first full length album was released in 2011. In 2013 alone The Maykit has played with a lot of indie heavy hitters like David Dondero, Tim Kasher(Cursive), Damien Jurado, Kevin Devine, Now Now, Slow Club, and Poor Moon (members of Fleet Foxes).
