iTunes Review

Just as George Lucas believes there’s no such thing as a finished film, many musicians will tell you the same about albums. Minneapolis’ Night Moves released the first version of Colored Emotions in 2011; then they garnered a buzz and a deal with Domino Recording Co., which let them re-record the album. This 2012 version resonates with the near-perfection of a boutique analog recording studio in the '70s. If not for guitarist and lead vocalist John Pelant’s nasal-affected vocals (the kind synonymous with 21st-century indie rock), it'd be easy to believe that both the opening “Headlights” and the following “Country Queen” were tracked and mixed at Sunset Sound Recorders in Hollywood during the Gerald Ford administration. The latter tune bounces with a Beach Boys–inspired piano before unfolding into a near-orchestral sonance of twang-infused beauty. The standout song “Old Friends” draws from the melodic well of Bob Welch–era Fleetwood Mac and Once We Were Trees–era Beachwood Sparks, making for a cosmic country rocker that might be best described as “Fleetwood Sparks.”

One of the best debuts I've heard in a really, really long time, and I don't just throw stuff like that around.

love the melody

as title, just love the melody.
now i m previewing the rest of the album, with a consideration to buy.

Years Active: '10s

Minneapolis country-leaning indie band Night Moves were formed by three high-school friends in 2010. Guitarist/lead vocalist John Pelant, bassist Mickey Alfano, and multi-instrumentalist Mark Ritsema had all played in various Twin Cities bands like the Battle Royale and Mouthful of Bees before coming together to form Night Moves. Rather than build their chops through frequent live performances, the bandmembers opted instead to practice and write diligently in their beginning phases. They carried...
