Moonwalk into 2022 with Emily Robb! A sizzling celebration of the electric guitar from this Philadelphia amp frier. 'How To Moonwalk' contains the spirit of Link Wray first poking his speaker with a pencil and draws a line between "primitive" rock 'n' roll and "considered" minimalism as did Henry Flynt, or more recently, The Double.
I've never heard The Velvet Underground – The Legendary Guitar Amp Tapes, but the positive reviews I've read recall a listening experience similar to what I've gotten out of this record. - Nic (Repressed Records)
From Petty Bunco... How To Moonwalk is the brash n’ bold new one from Philadelphia-by-way-of-Maine-&-Montreal’s Emily Robb. With a formidable CV in the underground and sub-underground, Emily sits as the top contender for the east coast’s most modestly masterful electric guitar abuser and this is the record to prove it. Though she served as top talent in efforts by Astute Palate, Storks, Louie Louie, & Lantern, How To Moonwalk marks Emily’s long-overdue, mucho-anticipated debut unencumbered release. And the album is, as they say, a motherfucker. Splattered across its eight or so tracks, How To Moonwalk shows a deep respect to the rock n’ roll form while refusing to be held back by a single one of its limitations. No vocals, no artifice, barely even a drum. It’s a totally fried, mutant offering that’ll entice the twisted seekers-- a sustained, distilled meditation on the unabashed revved up freedom of rock. Naturally, the folks here at Petty Bunco couldn’t be prouder to have our humble trademark of quality on it.
Recorded summer 2020 at Emily’s Suddenly Studio in Philadelphia with help from Bill Nace.
