CRITIC REVIEWS

Uncut

Poor Moon is gospel, played with blue notes. It is the sound of a sweet soul contemplating deliverance; as mellow and fierce and fearful as that.

Pitchfork

Never pedantic or didactic, never extreme or aggressive, Poor Moon is a warm hand on a cold shoulder, a vintage piece of soul music for new times in need.

Consequence of Sound
Now that might be too dense and figurative to really get to the bottom of, but if anything, by the end of this record you’ll at least have an idea of what being shot in the head by Jesus sounds like.
