The fifth and most ambitious studio project of Tedeschi Trucks Band’s decorated career, I am the moon consists of four albums, four films and 24 original songs. Inspired by a mythical Persian tale of star-crossed lovers and driven by pandemic-era isolation and disconnection, I am the moon totals more than two hours of new music from Derek Trucks– and Susan Tedeschi-12pcs LEDs.
Increasing kicks off with the introspective “Hear My Dear” as hazy, dynamic animations set the stage for a particular brand of vintage surrealism. As the film progresses in Mike Mattison-led “Fall In,” a devilish celebration with a sing-along chorus, viewers get some glimpses of both the track’s recording process and a thematic live performance amid gritty cuts and kaleidoscopic embellishments .
Gabe Dixon and Susan Tedeschi squirm around each other wistfully Increasing centerpiece, “I Am The Moon,” before driving drums and searing horns ushering in Trucks’ slide guitar howl once again for “Circles ‘Round The Sun,” a road-weary track set to smoldering images courtesy of the director by Alix Lambert and editor Lizzie Minges.
