Moonlight Towers / The Rite Flyers
October 17, 2015 @ 9:00 pm
Moonlight Towers 10:30
How does the Austin, Texas band Moonlight Towers win such lofty praise as “amazing” (Performing Songwriter) and “simply wonderful” (High Bias)? Just by doing what comes naturally: writing, recording and playing real rock’n’roll with a hearty pop kick, and being a genuine band. It’s really that simple.
That not so secret key of creating “good pop/rock music with hooks, heart AND heartache” — as Dagger Zine describes Moonlight Towers — has made the group “Austin’s favorite three-minute heroes” (Austin American-Statesman) and the renowned musical city’s “finest power pop export” (Pop Culture Press). And on Day Is The New Night, their third long-player, the foursome deliver their finest and richest sonic offering yet of what’s already been hailed as “perfectly molded power-pop” (Chicago Reader) and “radio-ready, pop-accented guitar rock” (Texas Music).

“One part Doctors’ Mob and Balloonatic, and two parts Wannabes, the Rite Flyers pay tribute to the more aggressive end of Austin’s New Sincerity movement of the late Eighties and early Nineties through their mere existence.” -Austin Chronicle
