The Moondoggies release first ever video, Empress Of The North

by oz on October 14, 2010

I know many of you were anxiously awaiting Tidelands by The Moondoggies. It was released on Tuesday and the band also released their first ever video for “Empress Of The North.” Go on out and get that album, despite the opinion of Pitchfork. Tidelands is not an album you’ll play while masturbating to non-fiction literature, but it will be perfect for your Fall barbecue with friends over several beers. You can like them on Facebook and listen to the album in its entirety before you buy.

And why doesn’t Pitchfork allow comments on their reviews?

I think they were just in TN for bonarroo man.

Anyway, I just read that pitchfork review and it kinda pissed me off becasue the review came off as super negative to me.

Anyone that has given the moondoggies a real listen knows they are incredibly talented. Kevin Murphy is probably my favorite song writer out there currently. I don’t consider them in “the band’s” shadow. I feel like they are making music on par quality wise with all the classics.

Great song. Not really surprised by the Pitchfork review. These are the same people who have never given a Dr. Dog album above 7. Which is why I come to HearYa, where the indie snobbery is kept in check. =D

Well just got the new record over the weekend. One of those cd’s where every song hits the spot And has taken well to everyone who’s listened. The new video is awesome as well. That’s some amazing artistry. Well done moondoggies!!

pitchfork does not allow comments on their reviews because they are scared, and they are against freedom of speech. at least thats what i heard from an 8 foot tall hipster once.
