The Moools

Weather Sketch Modified CD


"Moools' tightly arranged twelve-track fifth LP, Weather Sketch Modified (2010), showcases the bands impressive musical range. Tracks like "Iru Iranai" feature Yasuaki Sakai's loose, slightly off-kilter vocals alongside expansive guitar riffs accented by muted strings. "Konaiyo" bears heavy markings of alt-country/jazz influences while the tremendously abrasive, yet still pop-oriented punk number "CRC" are furthermore challenged by the disparate workings of the epic jam "Kage mo Katachi"; a track that features a flurry of keys, banjo, and sing-a-long chorus. Weather Sketch Modified delivers a catalogue of sound that is as imaginative and substantial as the band's expansive career." -
