Minor Moon - Tethers

By Ian Bremner

Chicago’s Minor Moon creates wonderfully assorted rock n roll. His new record Tethers is a self-proclaimed sci-fi concept album, but each song stands firmly on its own. Over the course of the 10 tracks Sam Cantor dips into jam band, country slide and wavy laurel canyon rock. The amount of sound and quality of production would be impressive for anyone, but knowing Cantor recorded, mixed and edited mostly all of it at home with a small collection of friend gives you an appreciation that surges throughout the full listen.

There is a mystic quality to Tethers. As tempos change, new sounds show their face ever so slightly, yet changing the mood of the song on a dime. Tethers is a highly enjoyable listen that feels fun, experimental and intentional all at once.
