Moving Foundations and Outer Space!

November 17th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

We are very happy to announce that wednesday the 21st of November is the releasedate of our new album “Moving Foundations and Outer Space”.

Albumcover

It will be released as a vinyl and a A2poster! Both of them are accompanied by a digital download.

“The eleven-piece afrobeat machine Music Is The Weapon is due to release their second album. Moving Foundations and Outer Space journeys through galaxies made up of sound, occasionally trespassing obscure sealed off areas therein where hidden bea(s)ts are to be discovered by the brave listener. The new set of songs is a melting pot of ecstatic percussion, wild sax parties and psychadelic organ lines. Music Is The Weapon is constantly challenging concepts and whatever you exspect of this new release expect something else.

Moving Foundations and Outer Space challenges you to let go, shake that body of yours and awaken the spirit of rythm within thyself, and above all, love afro-beat.

Moving Foundations and Outer Space will be released on MITW Records on november 21st. The album is released on vinyl and digitally (iTunes, Spotify etc). It also released as a poster, designed by artist Peter Larsson, where you can download the music digitally via a QR code or URL.”

June 12th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Melbourne based radio show Stylin at Triple R have already played our single We Will Never Stop. But more people have digged the song and played it on the radio.
We are really happy that our favorite DJ duo High Life played us on P3 Musikguiden. So check out their mix here!

We are honored that DJ Meredith on BreakThruRadio opened her The Afrobeat Show with our singles.

If there is a Swedish journalist who knows anything about music with African roots, it’s Lars Lovén. So listen to him …

“Music is the weapon [...] here with a new single that promises well for the album coming this fall.”

So friends, follow his blog from now on!
