4.0 excellentRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | December 5th 16

Dead Moon are one of the most underrated and overlooked punk bands out there, as their extremely lo-fi mix of garage punk, rock, and blues is one of the most charming and one of the most catchy around. On Unknown Passage, the sound the band established on In The Graveyard makes a return, and it's as memorable and intimate as ever. The singing is surprisingly somehow a strength, as though they are off-key the desired emotion, whether it be sadness, determination, or confidence, just drips of off Fred Cole's voice. Just listen to "I'm Wise", "I Tried", "Dead Moon Night", and "54/40 Or Fight" for some examples of that. The lo-fi production of the album gives the guitar, bass, and drums a gritty sound, matching the aesthetic of the album perfectly. It's really a great work of garage punk, as most of Dead Moon's discography is, so if you're into that type of stuff, one would recommend this in a heartbeat.
