Poor Moon isn't the strongest of debuts, and burgeoning promise is really all that can be taken from it.

The music here is pretty brilliant, but it registers closely with the sound of Fleet Foxes and will inevitably draw such comparisons from other critics and listeners.

Poor Moon turns out to be a wisp of a record, intentionally light and certainly promising but also oddly-- and perhaps ironically-- weightless.

On their self-titled debut LP, the group strips away the bulk of the pristine harmonies that have become the trademark of their original outfit in favor of a lower-budget, faintly sinister retro-folk sound.

This makes their first full-length an uneven, sometimes frustratingly safe record, but it also makes it an album of some promise.
