Moon Bros – These stars (from the album These stars, Western Vinyl)

Sublime evocation of the wide open spaces of America courtesy of Matt Schneider of Chicago with some friends from that city’s notable musical underground... distinct from Nashville which might seem at first listen like a better home musically.

A quixotic rising voice singing to itself and keeping its own tune, a creaky chair, a simple strum, a shimmering steel guitar.

It’s all very low maintenance but still demands your full attention.

A rough diamond. Maybe not so Nashville after all.

It is totally captivating.
