The thing that’s immediately noticeable about Seattle’s Moondoggies is the effortless way in which they evoke some old forms and the maturity with which they do it. The still-young band employs four-part harmonies and flourishes of Hammond organ along with the occasional instance of bombast to conjure comfortably familiar sounds that nevertheless feel fresh and revitalized in their hands.

They joined us to play songs from their recently released second album, Tidelands (like its predecessor, found on Hardly Art) and talk about the band’s origins and the Seattle music scene-as-community, among other things. Look for them on tour early this year with Portlanders Quiet Life.
