I’m gonna be perfectly honest- I’ve heard of Moostache, but have never actually heard Moostache. They’ve been the opening band to a few shows that I’ve attended, however, I never got there early enough to see them. Despite friend’s recommendations to listen to them, I made zero effort. I could have streamed their music online, but didn’t. I will admit, I think I have cheated myself.
The band’s latest creation Anything, Alone was forwarded to my inbox and I figured, what the hell- I’ll give it a try. I’m definitely not disappointed, and in all honesty, I sat through and listened to the entire thing straight through. Sometimes I get a little A.D.D. and skip around tracks when listening to an album for the first time, but I actually listened to each song in their entirety and I really liked each song for different reasons. As I’m writing this, I’m on round two of the one man listening party and I’ll probably still listen to it one more time before I’m done.
If I had to pick a favorite track, it would probably be “Today.” When singer Patrick Wardell hits some of the high notes, it sounds sort of Thom Yorkish. Combine that with the hooky guitar riffs, it easily gets stuck in your head. This whole album will, and I recommend that you don’t overlook them like I had. I guess you can officially say that I’m TEAM MOOSTACHE going forward.
