Set sail onto a cartoon ocean on a quest to an imaginary world in Wide as the Moonlight, Warm as the Sun. A perfect fit for Daedelus’ label Magical Properties, the new album by Goodnight Cody (of Team Supreme) is an experience of powerful imagery and pure poetic whimsy. Synthesized vocals, colorful toy beats, and charmingly playful dreamscapes create a captivating story of adventure. Every track is like a different land – or level – with all the twists, turns, and emotions that define the hero’s journey: uncertainty, excitement, loneliness, romance, melancholy and victory. Pack your bags for “Travel Alone,” which flips from slow and ponderous to funky and frenetic and back again – infused throughout with stars, so shiny and bright. “Paper Boat” launches into easy pink waves, under a glowing green sky and butter moon. With a childlike sense of wonder, “I Met a Whale” sways side to side in the deep blue sea – inspiring kisses, songs and smiles. “A Walk Through the Trees” pauses in the fresh feel of new love, and “Almost Forgot” expands with rising energy into the sunset. Absorbing and pleasantly unreal, Wide as the Moonlight, Warm as the Sun is a sonic kaleidoscope that ignites the imagination and makes music into a game.
