The second album from Minneapolis band Night Moves, Pennied Days, is a distinctly modern album and a sonic break from their 2012 debut. Written and recorded by principle members John Pelant and Micky Alfano, and produced by John Angello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, The Walkmen). The album shows the band’s deep appreciation for rock and roll’s most storied songwriters while maintaining their own voice. You can hear tinges of Leon Russell and The Band to Curtis Mayfield and Sly Stone to pre-punk experimentalists Suicide disassembled and rebuilt in to their own sound. It is a striking leap forward from a promising young band.
