Seven Cities of Gold LP
Moot's sixth album Seven Cities of Gold will drive a knife right through your honky-tonk heart. The album kicks off with "Hey Hey," a flirty, toe-tappin' number showcasing spirited, confident vocals along with blazing guitar and B3 organ pave the way to country-rock's exploration. Electric 12-string adds a unique stamp to the Willie Nelson classic "Crazy;" followed by "California," where pedal steel player Gary Morse puts on quite a guitar seminar. The album's title track, a sludgy, psychedelic-tinged rocker, is like T. Rex tripping acid with Guns 'n' Roses... a fantasy of conquest, murder, jungles, and untold riches.
