Humming Mountaintops by Joy Moonflower and Captain Baker (Mechanical Folk)

Humming Mountaintops  (released 08 February 2012)
by Joy Moonflower and Captain Baker (also known as Mechanical Folk)

A collaboration between the charming Joy Moonflower and the talented Captain Baker (of the Sindrones).

Hometown : Pretoria, South Africa

Joy's distinct, idiosyncratic singing has garnered comparisons to the likes of Joanna Newsom and Regina Spektor. However, her musical style is pervaded by simple guitar rhythms, unpredictable chord progressions and vocal acrobatics. A large portion of Joy's songs are improvised and lyrics are usually made up spontaneously - often only the basic chords and chorus lines are thought up beforehand. Thus her shows are usually marked by spontaneity, the musical direction depending a lot on they way she feels at the time.
