MAN OF MOON - SLIDE AWAY

Hankering for some Sunday foreboding, post-rock texture and intricate guitar-drums interplay? Of course you are. Edinburgh's Man of Moon are here to  satisfy that need and pile on the dread.

Mogwai are an obvious touchstone, but since Man of Moon are a two-piece, there's no 'Like Herod' apocalypse at the end. And, thank Christ, no Royal Blood My First Rage Against The Machine Riff dynamics, either.

It's patient, but not to the point of dwindling interest. Building an idea, exploring a groove and gradually racking up the tension is the key here, spreading tendrils across genres and developing a fully-formed identity.

Keep it on repeat and notice a drastic reduction in your desire to leave the house.

Fittingly, Man of Moon are on tour with The Twilight Sad in April. Take someone on a first date and test their resolve. In the long run, you'll thank me.
