Followers of the Fleet Foxes might be familiar with the cool sounds of folk newcomers Poor Moon. The band is a side project of fellow Foxes Casey Wescott and Christian Wargo. They recently released their first self-titled LP. Standout tracks “Waiting For,” “Heaven’s Door,” and “Pulling Me Down” immediately transport you back to the ‘60s. Lyrically, Poor Moon doesn’t break new ground, but with dreamy harmonies, rolling percussion, and even the use of cricket and bluebird sound effects it was hard for me to listen to each track without a smile on my face. The last track on the album, “Birds,” serves as a sweet end to a mellow journey.

’Waiting For’
