MOONLOVE

MAY NEVER HAPPEN

CONCENTRIC CIRCLES


Format: LP
Cata No: CC005
Barcode: 843563137277
Moonlove, a group who went unknown in their time except
to a few locals in their hometown of Kent, Ohio, quietly
released a masterpiece of melancholy, jangly pop called
May Never Happen back in 1985, as a cassette in an edition
of only twenty-five copies. Concentric Circles is proud
to finally present this truly special album to the world,
essentially for the first time. Arriving at a crossroads of the
Undergrounds both Velvet and Paisley, with a smattering
of the Dunedin sound, Moonlove managed to stand out
at the time, both by wearing their folk influence on their
collective sleeve and being somewhat more introverted
than many of their peers, due to the reflective nature of the
group’s lyrics.
Even on first listen, the songs have the familiarity of an
old friend that one hasn’t seen in years, the conversation
never skipping a beat. May Never Happen was recorded
on a primitive set-up consisting of a cassette deck and a
Betamax videocassette recorder, which gives the album
a lovely, warm DIY clarity. The guitars have a chiming,
clanging lilt that echoes the primitive lushness of the best
Flying Nun releases—think Look Blue Go Purple—and the
melodies twist and tangle à la Beat Happening.
May Never Happen is ten moments of miniature magic
made real again, thirty-six years later, finally on vinyl. And
it’s an absolute treat. Edition of 300 copies with twelvepage
booklet of photos and reminiscences.
