Night Moves – Carl Sagan (2016)


night

Full of cool, moody surfaces and pop melodies that sounded part mid-’70s, part present day, Night Moves’ debut album, Colored Emotions, was one of the more pleasant surprises of 2012. While the vague country influences on Colored Emotions have faded somewhat, the group’s second album, 2016’s Pennied Days, finds Night Moves moving slowly but confidently forward from their early work. Anchored in the striking, elemental keyboard work of multi-instrumentalist Jared Isabella, Pennied Days is a bittersweet song cycle that suggests several lovelorn characters have moved to a midsized college town

Night Beats – No Cops (2016)

beats

“Texan trio Night Beats are one of the most exciting bands to come out of America since the heady days of grunge. Their brand of 13th Floor Elevator-esque psych R&B has been turning heads on the underground in the UK ever since the release of their critically acclaimed second studio album, ‘Sonic Bloom’, was released in 2013…This new album (Who Sold My Generation red.), though, does see them raise the bar – it’s more special than Sonic Bloom – in fact, it’s one of the best guitar albums you’ll hear this year.”Source
