Minor Moon - "No Lightning Fix"

Chicago's Minor Moon has my favorite Bandcamp bio of the year (so far): "not your daddy's dad rock." Sam Cantor's project has a new single out, and that description fits "No Lightning Fix." The new song could very easily have spun its wheels in the modern mainstream folky singer/songwriter genre, and it would still have been a great song if that was the case. Cantor is showing that he could have knocked it out of the park doing that. Instead, "No Lightning Fix" makes a few swerves into various kinds of country inflected alt rock. Some of these swerves are gentle and subtle, and some will gently give you whiplash. The song builds and builds as the song progresses. Cantor took what was already a simply great song and turns it into a superb one.

You can listen to "No Lightning Fix" below. Tethers will be out March 26. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Minor Moon, check out the artist's website.
