Edvard Stein This takes me to the edge of the universe and back again. Amazing stuff. Favorite track: Anyone.

p_zetner Terrific set of songs, infused with the spirit of Cardiacs. (After many listens, changed my favourite from “Anyone” to “Cyanide”...great, complex song.) Favorite track: Cyanide.

Louis Jagger The irrepressibility of this gang should be a lesson to anyone, ever, who edits themselves too much Favorite track: Anyone.

Sterbus Have yourself a most transcendent trip to your inner self, where the child is still playing and having a lot of love to give. To everyone. Favorite track: Wired To The Moon.
Kieran Fleck

Kieran Fleck This is a masterclass of psych pop glam punk. There is so much detail crammed into every tune - unravelling itself after several listens. Funny, sweet, dark, epic. Love it. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Savage Horses.

By Word Of Moth is the second album by ARMY of MOTHS.
It was recorded at home on the dusty and trusty Zoom thing in 2019 and then we did some more in early 2020 before everything got strange.

A myriad of stuff and things that we hope to please your ears with.
An hour long collection of noises about this and that....but feel free to take your time with it, you'll only get told off for eating too many sweets before you have your dinner!


released September 4, 2020

Written and recorded at home by ARMY of MOTHS on the 12 track thing in 2019 and early 2020.
These meagre noises were humbly offered to André Lund, who upon receipt of the racket herein, set about mixing and mastering them.
We would like to sincerely thank him for his encouragement, support and for being very patient with our ridiculous and often fanciful notions.

André Lund plays lead guitar on His Heaven & Falling Up, acoustic and additional guitars on Mathematics of Love, Judi and A Noise...

The piano on Moth Hymn was beautifully played by Chris Anderson.
We are both humbled and honoured that he did so.
Chris is a very beautiful human being.

Cover and booklet art by ARMY of MOTHS
Inside photograph is by the very wonderful Michael Prince, to whom we owe much gratitude.

A substantially warm and large amount of gratitude is extended to Tim Rogers for helping us put together the art things and thus reminding ourselves to perhaps learn how to do things first, before we go about making claims to know what we're doing...we don't.
Tim does though...and we thank him.

This racket is dedicated to Dr. Timothy Charles Smith.
He changed everything.
