Album Review: "The Moonlight Club" by The Moonlight Club

The Moonlight Club’s most recent effort, the self-titled full-length album, is their most consistent and cohesive work to date. Recorded over a nine-day period at Breakglass Studios with David Smith (Patrick Watson, Elephant Stone, Leif Vollebekk), the album showcases the band’s authentic blend of folk-rock and 80’s new wave. With tight, impressive drum work and guitar tones that Johnny Marr would be proud of, the Moonlight Club have created a strong, diverse album that takes the listener on a journey from energetic rock to sweeping balladry. 


The Dead Centuries on Grade A Explosives

 
This Sunday on Grade A Explosives, Ottawa 3-piece The Dead Centuries will be calling in to chat with Andrew. Well... since they're an instrumental band they'll presumably be making words. Anyway, if they do talk, they'll be talking about the new record, Race Against Time, the Ottawa music scene, international politics, and, of course being an instrumental metal band.
