The emo kids listened to too much folk and jam bands, and now we have a problem. I like longful lyrics and electronic doodley doos as much as the next guy but something seems insincere about Moon Taxi. They always look just a little too pleased with themselves, too. While I don’t find their music distasteful, per se, I just think there are markedly better examples what they have to offer. I’m just not 100% on what that might be. Maybe a neo-hippy electronic take on blind melon? I might have developed a more classical taste in psychedelia, but that’s not to say that older is better. Those recordings are from 67, 85, and 99 respectively. What I’m getting around to is that its easy to impress kids on drugs, and that’s great, but it does not necessarily translate into staying power once the trip is gone. I once thought hooping to Gorillaz was the greatest thing ever. Turns out I was wrong. and for no particular reason I’m including a link to this. Draw your own conclusions.
