Fleet Foxes Offshoot Poor Moon Announce Debut Album

Fleet Foxes Offshoot Poor Moon Announce Debut Album
Seattle folk pop troupe Poor Moon recently delivered their five-song Illusion EP, but it seems there's much more in store from the Fleet Foxes offshoot than we initially expected. The group will deliver a self-titled LP through Sub Pop on August 28.

According to a press release, Poor Moon features a bunch of tunes bandleader Christian Wargo had accumulated over the years. The band got put together when Wargo decided to flesh out his solo recordings with fellow Fleet Foxes member Casey Wescott and brothers Ian and Peter Murray.

"There was a point where he'd emailed us a couple albums' worth of songs," Wescott said in a statement. "There was so much material sitting on iPods and in mailboxes, more ideas than could fit on one record."

Poor Moon was produced and recorded by the band at at Highland House, Fastback Studios and Avast! in Seattle, with engineering duties handled by Jared Hankins. Though a tracklisting has yet to appear, the new long-player will feature new cuts "Pulling Me Down," "Heaven's Door," "Waiting For" and "Holiday."

You can stream or download "Holiday," a breezy faux bossa nova number full of lightly plunked bell hits and shushed vocal harmonies, in the widget down below.
