Meet Moon Taxi, a band formed by a pair of friends from high school, and now based in Nashville.
The band’s debut jam-rock album, “ Melodica” came out in 2007, leading to lots of touring and festival slots like 10,000 Lakes Festival in Minnesota. A live album followed, and JamBase called Live Ride “a prime intro to this vibrant group who incorporates roots-rhythms, Latin-ismo, Phishy riffs, complex fusion and gutbucket, blue collar rock into a pretty enjoyable ball they hurl with serious gusto.”
The newest release, “ Mountains Beaches Cities” is their first to come out on vinyl and is a more straight forward rock album, as this sample of the single “ The New Black” indicates.
