muschiosauro Had no idea that an electric harp could have such a great, groovy, psychedelic and luscious rock sound, one that fits perfectly with the rest of the (fantastic) band and with some soulfully mesmerizing female vocals. Every song here shines in its own unique way, like pearls scattered in the sultry underbrush of a thick, tropical forest. Favorite track: Firefly.

Bucky The Moonsets play what you’d imagine in your head having known they’re from the ‘Sunshine Coast’ of Australia. Elements of psychedelic rock hazed with soulful and bluesy vocals and holding a pretty damn catchy island beat throughout. All in all this is a hot find and one I’ll be waiting for the rest of you to join the party soon.

Firefly 05:32
Oh Firefly come light up the night and say hello to my new friend Oh Firefly come share that sweet light and say hello to my blue friend Oh come weave through her heartstrings – she smiles with a hum Come weave through her heartstrings sweet thing Firefly – You light up the night Oh Firefly come light up the night – come weave your own constellations Firefly come share your sweet light – a mirror image to the sky Come weave through our heartstrings we watch the forest come alive Come play with our heartstrings – Sweet thing Firefly – You light up the night Fire take thy flight You light – you light up the night. Oh come weave through our heartstrings we watch the forest come undone Oh come play with our heartstrings – sweet one Firefly – You light up the night Fire take thy flight You light – you light up the night.

Supersede 04:20
We all know that ganja gets you high but it's a myriad of offerings that'll truly blow your mind But according to a law of sold out men We see you're burning the witches again Release the Superweed We got to set it free Release the Superweed The weed is all we need When there's a cure right before our eyes but the big pharmaceutical companies keep selling us their lies When just one plant can ease so much suffering How can we deny the remedy Release the Superweed We got to set it free Release the Superweed The weed is all we need Now is the time to plant the seed And this sick little joke will one day be history So let's ditch the polyester that got us into this mess Go the natural fibre It feels good upon your breast The Superweed will supersede a long list of outdated industries How can we deny the remedy Release the Superweed We got to set it free Release the Superweed The weed is all we need Release the Superweed Hemp for victory

When the power you hold Is measured in gold It'll slip through your fingers Like the soul that you sold So don't look down now There's a long drop below you And your media circus Won't come to the rescue You feed us with lies You lead us with lies You feed us with lies And you know it won't fly If you wade through the squalor And follow the dollar Pretty soon you will find That it's rotten on the inside Well we may not have many But we'll vote with or pennies And we'll take to the street And vote with our feet You feed us with lies You lead us with lies You feed us with lies And you know it won't fly

Home 05:20
The river's burnin My stomach's churnin The cogs keep turnin The lines keep blurrin The system's broken It's cracked right open If this tide keeps risin There's no use hidin Home, this is our home Home Home, this is our home. There's no where else to go Home, this is our home Home Home, this is our home This is our home The earth is shakin The wind is howlin The ocean's chokin The fire be ragin The system's broken It's cracked right open If this tide keeps risin There's no use hidin Home, this is our home Home Home, this is our home. There's no where else to go Home, this is our home Home Home, this is our home This is our home

Llokesh 04:04
He goes by the name of Llokesh Always lurkin in the shadows Waitin for his next victim I was peelin myself a little golden treasure in the form of a ladyfinger To my surprise when I opened my eyes A Llama ate my banana Draped in a feather boa was his partner in crime A luck dragon, runnin off with my flagon Or perhaps I need some more wine Or I could be losin my mind Cos now the Alpaca's eyein off my tobacca And Llokesh, he wants my cavendish To my surprise when I opened my eyes A llama ate my banana

Watermelon 05:21
Don't misjudge my intention You're the star of my destiny Cast aside your pretension Come outside and walk with me The moon is a watermelon Touch it and it shall explode The moon is a watermelon C'mon c'mon and let me hold you Don't you dwell in trepidation Come swimmin in a sea of serendipity And although this aint no simulation Come inside and dance with me The world is a minefield Touch it and it shall explode The world is a minefield C'mon c'mon and let me hold you Well there aint no case for compensation Accidents like these happen willingly And although we may never gain redemption Come upstairs and lie with me My heart is an atom bomb Touch it and it shall explode My heart is an atom bomb Touch it and it shall explode My heart is an atom bomb C'mon c'mon and let me hold you Let me hold you

about

*** Hey Earthlings, we are offering our digital download for whatever you can afford. If you, like us have lost work and can't afford a single dollar, you can grab it for free. If you are in a position to pay we would be forever grateful for your support during this uncertain time. Live shows may be cancelled for now but listening to music is NOT cancelled. Much Love. Stay Strong! ***

Recorded and mixed on 100% Solar power in an old wooden shack on the far northern edges of QLD's Sunshine Coast. Mastered at Yama-Nui Studio by Paulie B. 

This offering is a musical journey exploring everything from the little things like fireflies visiting in the night to the more serious theme of the state of our planet to cheeky llamas who steal bananas and the over-arching power of love.

The Moonsets electric harp, bass & drums trio are unashamedly eclectic, exploring the light, the dark and all the colours in-between, both musically and lyrically. We hope you enjoy the ride!

Formerly recording and playing live as The Flumes, we changed our name (for obvious reasons) at the end of 2016. We're glad we did and think The Moonsets suits us very well, but to reassure everyone that we're the same band, we re-recorded "Firefly". It's an old one for us, still in the live set and much loved.
