Man of Moon - The road (Melodic Records)

There’s a bit of a Glasgow roll on the show lately what with C Duncan and Kathryn Joseph (there’s also a new Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat album due out later in the year). What’s even more impressive about them all is the diversity of styles on show, no sign of trendsetting or bandwagon jumping.

Man of Moon are a duo who take a hint of Jagwar Ma and put a motorik worm into it.

Chunky power chords.
Unswerving drumbeat.
A song about the road.
World weary vocals. (They’re only young.)
Dancefloor breakdown.

It’s a beautiful thing.
