Music: The Moore Brothers with Why?

The Moores Brothers' last release, 2006’s excellent Murdered by the Moore Brothers, and their latest, the recently released Aptos, shimmer with a Folk/Pop vibe that stands shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Crosby, Stills & Nash and Simon & Garfunkel

Thom and Greg Moore have done time in a number of worthwhile outfits (the former in Chicken on a Raft and Nedelle and Thom, the latter in Sandycoates and Owl & the Pussycat), but they clearly save their best efforts for their own project together, the appropriately bannered Moore Brothers.

The Moores’ last release, 2006’s excellent Murdered by the Moore Brothers, and their latest, the recently released Aptos, shimmer with a Folk/Pop vibe that stands shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Crosby, Stills & Nash and Simon & Garfunkel, and that’s pretty lofty company by any yardstick. At the same time, there are elements of the off-kilter Pop of John Wesley Harding, the sparse vulnerability of Nick Drake and the heart-sleeved passion of Iain Matthews.

They play the Southgate House with Why? and Jason Snell. Get show details and Sound Advice here.
