On November 15 (2022), Legends of Nantucket Island a new album by the Lunar Cape band - will be released on all digital platforms. The format of the album is untrivial.


On the one hand, it’s a conceptual album traditional for the prog genre. Instrumental compositions with a piercing solo flute are in line with the main theme - a trip on a sailing whaleship that started on its metaphysical journey from the Nantucket Island.


On the other hand, it’s an audiobook where the legends of Nantucket Island from Herman Melville's Moby Dick, or the White Whale are read to the accompaniment of music and the sounds of the ocean. By the way, these ocean sounds are not an imitation – they are the actual, real field recordings from the northeast coast of North America.


“If you think about it, the Earth is a tiny island on the edge of the Universe. As we look at it from the far side of the Moon, we’re inviting everyone to join us, the adherents of the moon-centric concept of the universe, Homo Lunaticus,” - says Andrey Shashkov, a band member.


This album format, the synthesis of music and fairy tales, as well as the moon-centric” concept itself, are not new for the band. In 2019, the Lunar Folk Tales album was released. True, according to the musicians, in Folk Tales it was the words that were born after the music and began to describe it, and not vice versa.

About the band

The Lunar Cape band was created in 2011 by Nikolai Petrovsky and Olga Scotland in Moscow. The group’s key concept is the so-called Filmusic, that is, figurative music capable of describing events, emotions, feelings and relationships through sound. For 11 years, the band has maintained and developed this concept.

Legends of Nantucket Island is the band's third album. All albums were released by ArtBeat Music (Aleksey Kozlov's club).

The previous album Lunar Folk Tales (2019) was released in three versions - instrumental, English and Russian. The album enjoys well-deserved popularity. According to Yandex Music statistics for October 2022, more than 87,000 people listen to Tales every month, and the number continues to grow.
