ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Like their Lower East Side ancestors The Velvet Underground, The Moths' sound is sometimes
aggressive and at other times tempered and melodic.

Moths blaze a trail similar to the long lamented
Pixies and the ragged glory of Dinosaur Jr. with a
driving jagged-edged guitar attack that never seems to
run out of fresh ideas. The key to their charisma is
the band's rollercoaster use of dynamics, which rise
and fall as if they were in a live performance before
a packed house.' Amplifier Magazine

The Moths home base runs between the Lower East Side of Manhattan and the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.

Lepid Opera is their second full length CD. For this album, the boys went back to the green garage in Garfield, New jersey, produced it themselves with mixing help from Andy Halasz and Roger Peltzman.

Although their music runs the gamut from the opening roar of 'Walk into the Sun', the sardonic pop of 'Enthuiastic Loser', the haunted country of 'Holler', and the bittersweet finish of 'Sea Shanty', you'll find it's all good and hits you where you live.

Dismally Disney (fellow muso)

Bright Sons - shine on!
Turning over a lost leaf, in amongst a park full of litter and smelly trash [aka: the musick biz] we find a small and wonderful aberration, - a band of brothers who are bright enough to write songs with (~gulp!~) *intelligence*!! -and also creative / determined enough to get off their loafer-sofas to sing about some things usefully, thoughtfully, melodically, inventively which might help to make a difference in this wacky-run world.
Moths and flutter-byes, insects we all are on this craggy, sometimes shabby little orb-planet, but hey, -better a butterfly be / bee... than an errant gutter spider only out for spite and wrecking the good things.
Long live Moths, and all who sail like her…
Listen and buy; then wave bye-bye to garbage can pop-rot, hipcraprap and other malefactions.

A delight
Can anyone out there imagine a better-crafted song than "Box of Life" or "Enthusiastic Loser"? Each of these 14 pop gems will punch you hard in the gut, but help you to your feet afterward. I urge everyone reading my words to buy this CD as quickly as possible.

An album you can really sink your teeth into.
At a time when hip-hop, techno, and teenpop rule the music biz, there remain pockets of resistance to the inhumane, technology-fixated postmodern market place, and the Moths are among those fighting the good fight. Like rebels from the past who know THE TRUTH, the Moths refuse to be daunted by watching everything they love get thrown out in the tastemakers' dustbins. Their latest release, Lepid Opera, strikes a mighty blow for the simple reality of complicated relationships, good intentions, and instruments made out of wood. A guitar band in the grandest tradition, the Moths have welded equal parts garage and twang, punk adrenaline and goosebump pop. The winsome epiphanies of Sunday Morning and Walk Into the Sun blend nicely with the wry aggro of Isabel and Enthusiastic Loser; Joking is understated and heartbreaking, while Hibbing and Bat Cave provide country-punk hijinks aplenty. The album's closer will make any aging hipster alcoholic weep with self-recognition. This is an album you can sink your teeth into. In short, Lepid Opera offers a taste of a band coming into its prime.
