Tears of the Moosechaser / Press

“...their sound is indeed predicated on fusion, since it is an amalgamation of different genres and subgenres, as well as styles and techniques. Each song has its own mood, just as each song evokes its own imagery, like old Depression era photographs... burlesque houses ... drunkards stumbling down dark alleyways ... rustic scenery, the seemingly endless stretches of highway and blurry miles to the weary traveler, and so on in that way. Also, it is highly texturized music, at once both savage and refined, mad and sane, bitter and sweet, ugly and beautiful, dark and light, rural and urban, and old-timey and modern, among a good many other contraries. But above all it is a fusion of wood and rusty metal. Wood and rusty metal.”

“Tears of the Moosechaser are a relatively new band in the scene. That's even more reason to follow their progress, at any rate. After their debut release, Songs for a Sinister Woman, was so daringly envisioned and well-written and tightly played, I can only imagine what may follow on its heels.”

"I suppose if Tom Waits wasn't born in California but rather underneath a moonshine still in Kentucky then you'd have Tears Of The Moosechaser ... "A Lonesome Fog" screeches and scrapes with a mix of country, avant-garde, and bluegrass to create a sound I can't say I've ever heard before. It's exciting, creepy, inquisitive and original. All the while wrapping itself around a Western filled with spurs, dust, tumble weed and whiskey."

"Bravo, What a great contribution to dark roots, gothic Americana, insurgent country, and lo-fi mechanical noise over a backdrop of organic instrumentation! You can call me an Instant fan."
