MoonJune announces new release: YagulL from NYC

Yagull is a New York City-based acoustic power project written, arranged and produced by composer/ guitarist Sasha Markovic. On their debut, "films", Markovic is joined by an extraordinary group of soloists consisting of Lori Reddy (flute), Eylon Tushiner (sax) and Sonia Choi (cello). The music on "films" appears very cinematic and theme based, but would probably best be described as a "next generation post-rock chamber music." Like an independent film, the moods on "films" move from the dramatically atmospheric to playful. Two classic rock pieces appear in the mix that serve as listener friendly signposts within the landscape. "White Room" by Cream and "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" by Black Sabbath are both bravely deconstructed from their iconic forms and melodically reconstructed as dreamy reflective impression pieces. The album closer, "Distance, " brings out the full band sound - featuring soloists Reddy and Choi, and special guest, Josh Margolis, on drums.

Now on MoonJune's sister-label ZoZe Music.

SASHA MARKOVIC: acoustic and electic guitar

sashasonia, the homonymous album

sashasonia is a New York-based acoustic power duo, comprised of Sasha Markovic (guitar) and Sonia Choi (cello, vocals). On this, their self-titled debut, the two deliver a unique blend of musical stylings - including world, classical, folk and more - that meld into moments of pure elegance. Featuring fluid interplay between cello and guitar and spiced withexpressive vocals, sashasonia is a graceful and self-assured first offering. Fueled by passion and tempered by beauty and sensitivity, magical moments abound throughout this album of diverse compositions.
