Strange Ranger - Daymoon Super Limited Edition Red Vinyl
Super limited-edition - only 300 pressed! The new album from the Portland-based indie-rock band, formerly known as Sioux Falls. The band was formed by the duo of Isaac Eiger and Fred Nixon, who have been playing music together since 2009 when the pair were still in high school. A friendship solidified by their mutual love of early Modest Mouse, the two would eventually make the move to Portland in search of more fertile musical soil. The band released their breakthrough debut full-length, the sprawling Rot Forever under the name Sioux Falls, in February of 2016, changing their name to Strange Ranger in late 2016. Recorded over the winter of 2016/17, Daymoon naturally evolves from the expansiveness of Rot Forever in favour of a smarter and more focused approach. Because of that the record feels more subdued and organic in its approach - it pulls back and showcases a heightened attention to detail from the group. Yet that honest heart-on-sleeve songwriting still remains even if the band has chosen subtler paths to deliver their message. This is a perfect mix of early Modest Mouse with the haunting darkness of Sparklehorse and the quirky indie folk-rock of Alex G, finished with an emo twist!
