  • UK artist Mickey Moonlight will release his debut full-length on December 5th. Mickey Moonlight had previously been known by his given name, Mike Silver, as one half of brother/sister duo Sonovac, and latterly Midnight Mike, the quirky dance/pop alias he adopted throughout most of the remainder of the decade. This latest incarnation properly surfaced in 2008 with the release of "Interplanetary Music," a reinterpretation of a Sun-Ra track of the same name. Moonlight has cropped up regularly in the remix field over the past few years, with Franz Ferdinand, Circlesquare, Tame Impala and Connan Mockasin all coming in for re-rubs. And The Time Axis Manipulation Corporation brings together 16 mostly new tracks, with the exception of "Interplanetary Music" and a dub mix of "Pelu Tolo," which was put out last year by Ed Banger. In his own words, Silver describes the album as "...tales of biotech companies, artificial lovers, voluntary euthanasia, cosmic ambivalence, Discordian folk songs, time travel field recordings and psychedelic pattern-music."
