OLD MOON: Dreamer, Sleeper: CS

Mar 15, 2022

Dreamy post-punk and ’80s alternative rock-influenced pop songs are on the menu here. Dour and moody yet guitar-driven, this reminds me of what I once referred to as “Jazzmaster Rock” because so many of the bands with this guitar sound included someone playing a Fender Jazzmaster. Compiling two previous EPs, this collection of songs layered in reverb and effects galore will quench your gothy-sounding post-punk thirst. –Mark Twistworthy (Sister Cylinder, oldmoon.bandcamp.com)
