About this Event

Minor Moon

http://www.minormoon.com/

Dread-laced and hopeful, meticulous and ecstatic - the music of Chicago based Minor Moon dances with contradictions. Using a sound palette comprised of folk-rock melody, alt-country spaciousness, indie-rock angularity, psych freak-outs and Caledonia-soul mysticism, bandleader Sam Cantor wrestles together something altogether different. It’s a sonic concoction driven by thoughtful songwriting whose final form slips through the hold of well-worn definitions and expectations.

On Minor Moon’s latest album, An Opening (out via Midwest Action / Ruination Record Co.), the band looks inward as they delve outward, delivering a personal examination of textured humanity in a postmodern age, underscored by brief but relentlessly sane glimpses of existential dread. It’s a “lush, stately” (Chicago Reader) and “completely captivating” (Happy Mag) exploration into the dichotomy between alienation and connection, dealing often with political and social motifs in a manner that is “hugely personal and yet reassuringly universal” (Atwood Magazine).

Calling Chicago home, the four-piece (with Cantor on vocals and guitar, Michael Downing on bass, Colin Drozdoff on keyboards, Nathan Bojko on drums, and a host of other collaborators) have already released a purposeful full-length debut (2015’s A Whisper, A Shout, crafted in and around Somerville, MA), a step forward and into the current line-up and Chicago music scene with their follow-up EP (2017’s What Our Enemies Know) and many, many shows in over 30 cities around the country – all since the project’s 2015 inception. The band is looking forward to tours around the east coast and Midwest and the making of a third full length record in 2019.
