  • Moin, an experimental ensemble made of Raime and percussionist Valentina Magaletti, have unveiled their first full-length. Spanning eight tracks of rock, post-punk and electronics, Moot! is due on July 9th via AD 93, marking the group's debut on the London label. The album follows Moin's self-titled EP from 2013, released by the defunct, highly influential Blackest Ever Black label. Read our review of that record. Stylistically, Moot! takes a different direction than Raime, a project of Joe Andrews and Tom Halstead that pushes a darker sound of UK club music. Magaletti has been a prolific collaborator as of late. Her CZN project with João Pais Filipe just dropped an EP, Commutator, on Offen Music, following the Luxury Variations 12-inch for The Trilogy Tapes. Tomaga, Magaletti's duo with the late multi-instrumentalist Tom Relleen, released their final album, Intimate Immensity, in March. For more on Raime, revisit our 2016 podcast with the post-hardcore duo.
