This week on Discovery Corner I’m featuring the New Paltz, NY shoegaze-y locals What Moon Things. New Paltz, for those of you longtime listeners who know, is my alma mater! The band features members from New Paltz basement favorites Nelsonvillains and Year On a Mountain as well as the bassist of the late Albany game changers, Aficionado. Having said that, they are starting something completely new from their prior engagements. They will be releasing their self-titled debut LP next week on Hot Grits Records based in Athens, GA, so this playlist is comprised solely of tracks from that. I spoke to lead singer Jake Harms and drummer/singer John Morisi about possible scouting locations for their new home, why they don’t aim to be your “college experience,” and Jake’s injured hand and what it does for him with the ladies. This is gonna be a good ‘un!
