The Moondoggies

The Moondoggies

(Seattle, WA)

There’s always going to be a smart-ass. In a recent interview, Seattle’s The Moondoggies, were discussing what they felt about the comparison to a particularly legendary 70s blues-rock band. “If you don’t want to be compared to the Allman Brothers, shave,” one quick-witted wiseacre immediately posted.

But for The Moondoggies, such comparisons are easy to make; the three-and-four part harmonies found throughout do help to recall bands of an older vintage, such as Crosby, Stills, and Nash, The Doobie Brothers, Neil Young, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, but their sound is also echoed in contemporaries such as My Morning Jacket, and sort-of label mates Fleet Foxes and Blitzen Trapper, who are signed to label Hardly Art‘s parent company, Sub Pop. Not that it particularly bothers guitarist and singer Kevin Murphy, though. “‘Classic rock’ seems to imply to some lacking relevancy; however, time wise, it isn’t that old. I think it’s just rock music. Whatever genre, the goal of a good song is timelessness, whatever time you live in. The goal is to just vent, and I believe if done honestly, it’ll reach people.”
