Featured Band: The Mood
Its not difficult to conclude that the mood that NYC's The Mood is attempting to evoke is a pleasant one; a beautiful summer afternoon, hanging out the park with friends. Perhaps there's croquet or bocce involved, perhaps not. Or, wandering around your hometown streets later on that same night, likely drinking from a poorly-concealed can of Old Milwaukee. Whatever the specifics are, it's certainly a pleasant time.
The press release states "fans of the New Pornographers take note." And while one could argue that they borrow a little too heavily from their Canadian counterparts, it can also be argued that there's no such thing as too much of a good thing. So, if you're a fan of male and female harmonies over guitar-driven, glockenspiel-laden indie pop and "oooh la la la" sing-a-long opps, then these two tracks below should put you in The Mood.
The Mood - Eskimo Scientist
The Mood - Masquerade
