Seattle quartet and Sub Pop labelmates Poor Moon were the sole opener for Beach House at their stop in Boston on this tour in support of the latter's excellent new release, Bloom. Apparently, the band is a side project of Fleet Foxes, a tidbit of information I wouldn't discover until I began to writ.
Seattle quartet and Sub Pop labelmates Poor Moon were the sole opener for Beach House at their stop in Boston on this tour in support of the latter's excellent new release, Bloom. Apparently, the band is a side project of Fleet Foxes, a tidbit of information I wouldn't discover until I began to write this very review. That sort of makes sense: Fleet Foxes' recent record was a decent slab of (overhyped) indie-folk that would often vibe a little too sleepy for my liking, and the same could largely be said about Poor Moon. Cool, baroque pop arrangements and vocals that reminded me of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin's John Cardwell--obviously, PM was dreamier and more ornate, but their dynamics weren't nearly as pronounced. There weren't many crescendos or crests to grab a hold of. The crowd didn't seem to mind too much, though, paying attention politely and reacting enthusiastically (for an opener) between songs.
