Sleep Deprived Music Review: Wild Moccasins

Synth pop is different now than it was in the 80s and 90s. There were synth pop/indie pop bands that I liked back then – mostly Duran Duran. Some got on my nerves. No offense Pet Shop Boys but you get on my nerves.

There was a lack of female voices in the genre. There were females but they weren’t as well known. I can’t even think of one.

I’m always glad to hear a female voice – no matter what the genre. Zahira Gutierrez has a strong voice that doesn’t get overpowered by the band. She also doesn’t sound like a robot so that’s a plus.

Wild Moccasins – Zahira Gutierrez, Cody Swann, Nicholas Cody and Avery Davis – have been around since 2007. My marriage didn’t even last that long.

I’m glad they stuck it out so they could make this new album, Look Together. “Boyish Wave” reminds me a bit of A Flock of Seagulls. I’m ok with that. My favorite song is probably “Longtime Listener.”

They are still new to me and Manny Pacquimeow. The album was on and he appeared while “Doe Eyed Dancer” was playing.  Manny sat on the piano bench for a few songs so that’s a good sign that he likes Wild Moccasin’s new album. I wonder if Manny would be willing to do a recreation of the cover of the album. (I’m definitely in need of a nap. That’s a crazy genius idea.)

 

 

 

Look Together will be out on June 29 for your listening enjoyment. Go look for it in all of the usual places.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.

One thought on “Sleep Deprived Music Review: Wild Moccasins

  1. I like them. And don’t you go dissing my Pet Shop Boys! “West End Girls” is one of my 10 favorite songs of all time, and “What Have I Done to Deserve This” ranks pretty high too.
