Meanwhile, back in the land of the criminally overlooked were Moose, thrown in the shoegazing bucket because in their very early days, on their first few EPs, waves of guitar did indeed wash over the songs. Not only that, but according to lead singer KJ McKillop it was his habit of looking down at the array of effects pedals at his feet that coined the scene’s name in the first place.

By the time tracks from those EPs had been collected together as Sonny of Sam, and Moose had recorded …XYZ, the label already started to seem inaccurate. The album is more country-tinged pop than reverb heavy shoegazing, liberally strewn with gems, including a cover of Fred Neil’s wonderful ‘Everybody’s Talking’.
