Moes Anthill
True: An experiment by Swiss cheese maker Beat Wampfler had him play rock music to improve the flavor of his wheels during the many months of curation. «Atom Heart Mother» (Pink Floyd)…

…«We Will Rock You» (Queen) and «Boleros Inolvidables» (Tito Rodriguez) and especially Katja Epstein’s «Wunder gibt’s immer wieder – Miracles keep happening») did especially well. There was also proof that hip hop made for bigger holes in the Emmentaler. (Source: Swiss Review). Dispelling the notion that Switzerland is culturally a barren land.

Innovative Swiss band Moes Anthill and their amalgam of neo-folk, pop, and Americana, rocking but also warm and tender, would not only make Gruyere improve its smell but it will definitely make your blood curdle. What’s more, the leader of the quintet, Mario Moe Schelbert is actually the creator of a body lotion named Quitter which promises to transform the sound of their new album into a sensational scent bouquet. Yes, «Quitter» is also the title of their latest creation. The album presents 10 songs in all and features their line-up of Moe (vocals, banjo, guitar), Simone Baumann (vocals, keys), Michael Boner (e-guitars), Flurin Lanfranconi (double bass) and Clemens Curatle (drums).

As far as their new work is concerned, please let’s let them get in their own words edgewise (translated from moesanthill.com): «After 3 years of work, the new studio album «Quitter» (cd, LP, digital) was released in February of 2019. In French, quitter stands for leaving and in English, it stands for a coward or a person who easily quits an iffy situation. A strong word, yet it is a reflection on our times! «Quitter» was produced by Hank Shizzoe at the Powerplay Studios in Maur, ZH. The emphasis was on vintage gear and with the modus of «all in the same room». We’re well aware that in today’s times what counts are not just good intentions but real action. You can depend on us! Quitters, thank you for your support.»

Moes Anthill, live at El Lokal. Finally, music that smells good.
