The Moons - 'Fables Of History'

Garage, soul and psych of a ’60s vintage for The Moons' second album

The Moons - 'Fables Of History'

8 / 10 Recorded in Edwyn Collins’ studio, previewed in support slots with Beady Eye and on the Tour de France by Bradley Wiggins, the second album by The Moons – the solo project of Paul Weller organist Andy Crofts – is, as you might ascertain from all that information, rooted in garage, soul and psych of a ’60s vintage. Singles ‘Double Vision Love’ and ‘Jennifer (Sits Alone)’ are typical of the two distinct sides on offer in ‘Fables Of History’: the former a fuzz-riff-driven shuffle, the latter acoustic, whimsical Ray Davies dreamer-pop. The quality – of the harmonies, the instrumentation and most importantly the songs – is high, and remains so throughout.
