Local Record Review: 'Anything, Alone' by Moostache
Huntington Beach four-piece Moostache have just released their anticipated album entitled, Anything, Alone. Featuring 11 tracks produced locally by Jon O'Brien (including 2 bonus tracks produced by Billy Mohler and Jimmy Messer), the album is nothing short of exuberant. Right out of the gate, the impressive range and vocal control of Patrick Wardell is thrust into the spotlight full force with "Guarded Place." Comparable to a tranquil version of The Mars Volta frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala, it might take some getting used to depending on your musical tastes. Either way, the controlled chaos that is Wardell's vocals is astounding and not over-bearing through out the remainder of the album.
After a stint on the road with AWOLNATION this past April, Moostache is ready to take their music to the next level. The release of Anything, Alone is surely the perfect start to a bright future for this wolf pack of songsters. Catch them live this Thursday, May 17th at The Constellation Room with Henry Clay People and Max and the Moon.
