Today we celebrate the official release of Rebecca Foon’s superb new album Waxing Moon. Although Foon has a long and illustrious history with Constellation (label fans will recognize her from Saltland, Esmerine, Thee Silver Mt. Zion, and many more), this is the first release under her own name, and it’s a resplendent addition to her musical oeuvre. Here’s a glimpse of what folks are saying about Waxing Moon so far:


“The ambience is heavy and sometimes ominous, with Foon’s deep-trawling voice at the core, but appropriately, Waxing Moon – named for when the moon’s brightness increases – is bathed in hope and spiritual substance.”
MOJO ★★★★

“This hugely gifted cellist has gone neoclassically solo. Whilst Foon’s beautifully assured cello and elegantly minimalist piano features throughout, it’s that extraordinarily expressive voice of hers that really headlines. Exquisitely tender on ‘Ocean Song’ and rousingly impassioned on the Arcade-Fire-nodding “Wide Open Eyes”, Foon’s talent feels more boundless now than ever.”
Electronic Sound

“True to the raw beauty of the planet she’s honoring, Waxing Moon sees Foon embracing a sparser, more piano-centric sound. Songs like “Another Realm” evoke the beauty of a film score, with strings and voices coalescing in an almost dream-like trance… The music Foon has created on Waxing Moon is a fitting soundtrack to the work she’s doing with the Pathway to Paris. It’s full of hope, beauty, and perseverance.”
PopMatters (8/10)

“Foon’s smoky, cracked voice caressing electronically enhanced strings, guitar and her cello. With the optimistic jangle of “Wide Open Eyes”, the sole uptempo track, this fascinating mysterious work benefits from total immersion to appreciate its finer impact.”
