WILD MOCCASINS: Microscopic Metronome: CDEP

Wild Moccasins have a knack for interesting transitions that they actually pull off. Their first track begins outside around a crackling campfire and builds up, bringing the listener back into the studio. Though the music is thoughtful, their sound is tied up in whimsical indie fodder: cutesy girl and guy sung stuff bouncing with “oohs” and “ahhs.” It’s modern, shiny-produced throwback pop music sung with the jest of teenage nostalgia. If your wardrobe is season up to date with American Eagle, I have a feeling you’ll love this band.
