Psychedelic Mooj Pays Homage to Vintage Rock, Analog Soup
CHANDLER, AZ--(Marketwire - January 12, 2011) - Psychedelic Mooj pays homage to classic rock on their latest release, Analog Soup. The band had one goal in mind when entering the studio: blow people's minds. The band does this with old school groove, vintage tone, raw energy, and rock-solid rhythm. This album, their first release on Univibe Garden Records, is considered by them to capture their 'live' sound better than any of their other previous albums.
Formed in Chandler, Arizona, in 2005, Psychedelic Mooj evolved from playing amped-up traditional blues to become one of Arizona's preeminent psychedelic blues jam bands. Founding members Ram Tuli, Richard Chavez and Dave Hull were joined by Ram's 15-year-old son, Will Tuli, to record Analog Soup.
Analog Soup was recorded and engineered by Shane Matsumoto. Psychedelic Mooj has worked with Matsumoto before, including appearances on the IMP television and radio shows. Matsumoto understood what the band wanted: an album that sounded like it was recorded in the mid-70s. Matsumoto captured their vintage sound and raw energy perfectly in the large open studio rooms of SER Soundworks in Chandler, AZ. Everything was mic'ed -- including the hallways outside the studio.
Much of the material on Analog Soup was developed on stage beginning as far back as 2007. Nothing went on this album that wasn't thoroughly "road tested." The material harkens back to the arena rock days and will take you on a mind-melting journey that will make your head swim and hips shake.

Everything about Analog Soup was designed to reflect the band's love of classic rock and psychedelic blues and is available on CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon.
