TO ORDER WAXWANE CD & LYM MERCH - SHIPS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
Love You Moon is the solo project of Matthew Embree; a founding and core member of the genre-defying bands RX Bandits and The Sound of Animals Fighting. Over the course of his ten year career Embree has developed a cult like following of impassioned fans that thrive on experiencing his genuine and musically explosive performances. Heralded by them as one of this generation's most prolific, socially outspoken and musically diverse songwriters.
Waxwane, Love You Moon's debut full length release, is the five year culmination of Embree's most stripped down and soulful songs with a pureness and honesty that comes through in his lyrics and the style in which he records. written, performed, and produced entirely by Embree (with contributions from drummer Chris Tsagakis (RX Bandits, TSOAF) and vocals from Lauren Coleman), Waxwane was recorded live and on analog tape, a conscious decision underscoring Embree's fearlessness in presenting his music in an unadulterated and genuine form.

Purchase Waxwane on iTunes PRESS:
"Waxwane features 10 songs that span a variety of styles and paces, ranging from Embree's patented upbeat socio-political diatribes ("Screams In A Vacuum" and "The Last Words Of Nicholas Berg"), to more unexpected Billy Joel-esque jams ("David's Birthday") and Elliot Smith-inspired poetry ("Brown Shingle Berkeley")...4/5 stars" - Alternative Press
"Combining influences from multiple genres, including acoustic, folk, and sometimes jazz, Love You Moon has put Waxwane together beautifully, and has produced an album to rival the best releases of 2008 to date." - Absolutepunk.net
"It takes a special kind of person to single handedly spark a thunderous clapping session in a dark room full of too cool twenty-somethings. But by the end of Love You Moon's acoustic set at Koo's Art Center in Long Beach, any worries of judgment or anxiety had been sucked out of the front doors of the paint slathered gallery to freeze in the midnight air. Huddled together in the darkness, unity and power spread like a fever in the crowd." - OC Weekly
