Richard E has travelled about a bit but this time he's taking us to the moon with the new single, 'To The Moon'!

Long time followers of Further Out Recordings will know that the origins were inspired by Sun Ra via Solar Apple Quarktette and Neptune Alpha Base Massive; any wonder then that this track is called 'To The Moon'?

Well it was inspired by the cyprto boom and equally seems relevant now with the mini-space race in times of a mini-planet crisis - sounds a bit 70s?  And so does 'To The Moon' with the ex-London based Yorkshireman now US citizen, LA resident with wife Annabel (lee) (when she's not engrossed with Edgar Allan Poe, there's 'Live Covers' also on Further Out Recordings (see review HERE).

This is almost 100% on vocals and instruments and feels nicely West Coast Baleraic Bowie that'd fit in a Paul Hillery 'We Are The Children Of The Sun (see review HERE) or his equally compelling compilaton series, ' Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours' (Vol. 2 came out earlier this month on RE:WARM).

The dreamy vocals, flute and guitars take a back seat on the Robert Burbidge remix but there's instrument and accapella versions too to make this the full package.

A new album, 'Opening Scene', is promised for release early next year so in the meantime, let's take it 'To The Moon' and back.
