WHAT MOON THINGS
(NY post-punk/noise-rock/shoegaze/80s goth/90's grunge)
Live review from Flagpole Magazine:
"Hey, didn’t we say something about a '90s revival the other day? If you were at the Caledonia Lounge Saturday night, you found yourself right there in the thick of some good old guitar-rock (albeit with a few slight modifications).
After brief, yet solid, sets from Triathalon and Velocirapture, What Moon Things hit the stage with their cross-pollination of My Bloody Valentine’s shoegaze-haze and Failure’s spaced-out rock. The three-piece New Paltz, NY-based outfit doesn’t yet have a proper record released (at least I can’t seem to find one), but mark my words: this band will be making waves in no time. It was a bit hard to hear the vocals over a sea of fuzzed-out guitar, but I seem to recall that there were quite a few songs about alcohol. (You’ve gotta know your audience, right?)
Truth be told, I haven’t heard a band sound that good at the Caledonia in quite a while—maybe even ever. (Has anyone else noticed the club’s newly installed wall-soundproofing tiles? Weird, right?).
What’s impressive about What Moon Things, though, is that they make sounds that would seem to require twice the number of people on stage. Sure, a lot of what the band is up to is effects trickery, but there’s certainly something to be said for a group that can turn sustain into a fourth member."
