The first full-length from The Most Powerful Telescope In The Universe, recorded over two weekends in secluded woodland cabins, and pressed to 12" vinyl in limited-edition silkscreened covers. Their first, self-titled EP garnered comparisons to Slint, Shellac, and Ride, and 'The Moonlight's Fair Tonight' takes this mix of post-punk and spaced-out indie rock to the next level - it's an album of psych-pop and drone for those who discovered Pink Floyd before post-rock, rough-edged and unrehearsed.


released September 22, 2009

The Most Powerful Telescope in the Universe Cincinnati, Ohio

Once a year, we turn a woodland cabin into a makeshift recording studio, fill it with instruments, and spend the weekend writing and recording an album from scratch. Then we all go back to our other projects, and release the results online.
