Moon Hooch to Release New Album in September

Bark at the Moon...Hooch!
Brooklyn sax-and-drums dance music trio Moon Hooch will release their second album, This Is Cave Music, on September 16 via Hornblow/Palmetto Records. It's the follow-up to their self-titled, 2012-released debut.
The title refers to the term Moon Hooch coined to describe their unique sound: like house music, but more primitive and jagged and raw.
The trio -- Wenzl McGowen (tenor sax, bari sax, contrabass clarinet, EWI), Michael Wilbur (tenor sax, soprano sax, vocals), and James Muschler (drums, percussion)-- met while all three were students at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City. They started busking in New York's subway platforms, and the underground dance parties they whipped up got them banned from Brooklyn's Bedford Ave station.
And here they are today, prepping for their second album.
