Brooklyn is not exactly the region you would expect to see the creation an epic seven-act song cycle of avant-garde theater rock depicting the internal struggle of a megalomaniacal monarch at war with the demons in his mind. However, what better place than the “Kings County” for such a lofty concept piece to emerge from. As the brainchild of visual artist and singing horn player Will Lemon, Moon & Moon recruit such prolific pals as An Albatross, Devendra Banhart, Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers and Bat For Lashes to help flesh out the challenging VII Acts of an Iron King, augmented in its stunning intricacy by obscenely-detailed packaging that includes jasmine-scented print cards gorgeously illustrating each act of this most impressive experiment in sonic black box theater. The line separating Godspeed and Godspell has officially been erased.
