2013 and 2014 have been packed with some of the best shoegaze and dream pop in ages. That an album as strong and engaging as The Moas self-titled debut didn’t make it to SBWR when it was released in August speaks to the massive quality and quantity of reverb-soaked output the world over. Featuring lovely, lazily swoony vocals; complex, ever-changing time structures; dream-pop melodies; and just enough reverb to fuzz up the edges, the album garnered well-deserved positive notice locally. The Saskatoon foursome explore catchy indie-pop melodies laid out by bending guitars and a peculiar organ (‘Blue Light’) as well as slow, dreamy tunes with boomy bass (‘No Colonial’) and a cohesive indie-rock sound that makes it all shine attractively. The band is already hard at work recording new material, so check Bandcamp to get caught up! [by Dave Lytton]
