On Friday evening Night Moves had the opening slot for fellow Minneapolis artists, Poliça. The trio – with their intense and extraordinary music – has become a favorite band of mine. And that happened after just seeing them play live once (also at the Neptune). Night Moves is a genuine rock band, all passionate guitars, keys and drums (for live show). I love the twists and turns their songs take – listen to “Country Queen” and “Horses” for example. Also singer John Pelant has this honestly unique voice that sounds great live as well. The Neptune’s a good venue for them, as it lets the group’s sounds (at times psychedelic) stride through the air. Add their album, Colored Emotions to whatever method you choose to listen to music.
