HeartBreakTunes facebookR. STEVIE MOORE
"Lo-fi legend R. Stevie Moore began in the mid-70s with releasing albums and tapes, and since has written more than 400 (!) full-length albums. All of them define his pure own aesthetic which includes conceptual noise, spoken word diatribes, power pop, prog, punk, country, folk, mini-symphonies and some genres that don't even exist yet. Moore defies categorization and that makes him all the more interesting."
"Moon Duo consists of Ripley Johnson of Wooden Shjips and his better half, Sanae Yamada. Together they create timeless melodic pop templates that find their way in repetitive hooky keyboard patterns, monstrous, zoned-out guitars and motoric beats. A sense of punk comes into play as twangy surf guitars act out against drone and krautrock tendencies. Moon Duo succeeds in creating an intense and exciting labyrinth of noise and psychedelic sounds where pop melodies create air and space."
"Mikal Cronin, singer-songwriter, collagist, frustrated, energetic, too young, too old… and gifted with an ear for melody, trained by Buddy Bolly, The Beach Boys, The Beatles and the upside-down-inside-out melody of '77 punk and thrashy garage. As Cronin deconstructs, re-assembles, enlarges and fades pieces of sounds, he creates a cavern for those 20- and 30-somethings who find themselves on the verge of an adulthood that they will never really reach. The wistful and hooky psychedelic noise pop'n'roll he comes up with might just be the soundtrack for those freak-outs you sometimes want to lose yourself in."
