With their fourth album Salt, transcendence, the sublime, and letting go are on the mind for the members of Montreal's Moon Run. Since Half Moon Run’s last album, A Blemish in the Great Light (2019), there’s been a global pandemic and a sea-change in the live music industry. Meanwhile, the band’s put out three releases—two EPs and a collection of reworked “isolation versions” of older songs. Plus, their fourth member, multi-instrumentalist Isaac Symonds, has moved on to a bucolic life out west. The remaining trio—Portielje, Conner Molander, and Dylan Phillips—are also the band’s founding trio. Their fabled origin story involves a 2009 Craigslist ad, and a dingy Mile End jam space populated by a rising wave of Montreal musicians, including phenom Grimes. They spent those formative years generating not just their debut album, Dark Eyes (2012) but also the restless, six-armed entity that composes their music and performs their live show. That sublime state of creation has produced music that everyone from The Guardian to Exclaim praises, even as they struggle to classify it. But the band doesn’t much mind what genre they’re filed under—whether it’s neoclassical dream-folk, ambient math-pop, or rustic art rock. Live or recorded, their music—at least according to one anonymous fan—“sounds like gold dust." Now, with their fourth album released, labelling it is the furthest thing from frontman Devon Portielje's mind. “All I can say is that our last EP was looking inwards and moving onwards, and now we’re maybe looking upwards." - Devon Portielje

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
