Poor Moon by Poor Moon
Released: Aug 2012
Label: Sub Pop Records
OK, so Poor Moon may have its cheesy moments; the line "I pick up the tune as I whistle along" is, yes, followed by whistling! But the multi-part harmonies and deft acoustic picking of their debut album will sound very familiar: Fleet Foxes' Christian Wargo and Casey Wescott join brothers Ian and Peter Murray for a new quartet devoted to hushed folk-pop bolstered by subtle baroque touches. It's those touches that keep things interesting, from the twinkling marimba of "Same Way" and the island-kissed "Holiday" to the woozy twang of "Waiting For" and the organ psychedelia of "Heaven's Door."
