Mooncake is a Russian post-rock band founded in Moscow early 2006. Since then Mooncake has been permanently performing at top Moscow clubs and festivals, toured Russia and Ukraine, shared stage with such bands as God is an Astronaut, Explosions in the sky, Caspian, Russian circles and finally became the leader of Russian instrumental and post-rock music scene.

In five years time the band released three EPs and one full length album, which were warmly welcomed both by listeners and critics all over the world.

Lagrange Points is Mooncake’s first full length album. The CD, released in 2008, made the band popular among connoisseurs of genre both home and abroad. TheSillentBallet.com - the largest resource on instrumental music – published a rapt review of Lagrange Points having graded it 8 points out of possible 10:

“The very first spin of Lagrange Points by Mooncake simultaneously bowled me over, knocked me for six, and toppled me head over heels. From the first tinkling guitar tones of “Nine Billion Names… (To A. Clarke)” to the wonderfully tight snare rolls which help bring “Short Stories Of Methuselah Tree” to a close, I was nothing if not enraptured. <…> With each new chord the glee of that first impression is doubled and redoubled, and even in the pieces of a more sombre inclination the music is intensely enjoyable in its sheer earnestness. <…>

Lagrange Points is one of those rare albums that can restore faith in an increasingly tired genre and remind you why you fell in love with it in the first place, and God knows how many spins later it is beginning to look as though I can confirm that my first impression is going to be a keeper.”

Mooncake is sometimes compared to Pink Floyd or Mogwai but the band has made a name for itself having developed its own style and became quiet popular among connoisseurs of genre both home and abroad. Catchy melodies, atmosphere, the ideal balance between rapture and grief: all this has always been Mooncake's distinctive feature.
