Singles Going Single #10 - The Moons (Broken, 1997)

Yet another uno-single wonder that also made it onto the imitable Broken Rekids label during the '90s. The Bay Area-based Moons, featured in their lineup one Mr. Adam Pfahler, formally of Jawbreaker, on drums, but that's where the conicidences between these two bands start and end.

No intense, angst-ridden punk here my friend, merely two slices of blissful, indie-guitar pop. On the leisurley, but reflective traipse of "Stolen Days," K.C. Staubach's delivery exudes Noel Gallagher, just as much as Elliott Smith, resulting in a sublime 191 seconds. "Step Back," revels in a comparatively vigorous motif, with it's guitar-work more notably prominent than it's flipside.
