Torn from the fertile soil of the Midwest, the Love Moon trio found themselves transplanted in the Bay Area where they hit the ground running. While their band name could easily be the name of a Care Bear, there’s nothing cute and cuddly about their music. Listening to Love Moon is like standing alone on a rooftop on an overcast day and watching lightning strikes off in the distance. It’s heavy yet intelligent, gloomy yet contemplative. On Clouded Bliss, Love Moon delves deep and bares teeth. Touches of punk, sludge, and psych are vindicated with crippling bass work, explosive percussion and, most importantly, bong-rattling, soul-crushing, bowel-shaking riffs. Riffs for miles. Riffs for days. Riffs as far as the eye can see. There are a million bands cranking out records these days but what Love Moon does on Clouded Bliss is something truly special.

The guys in Love Moon don’t fuck around.

Formerly members of the much-loved Indianapolis sludge metal band Male Bondage, bassist/vocalist Jordan Martich, guitarist Charlie Thomas and drummer James Lyter said goodbye to the Midwest in July 2014 before making their way out to The Bay Area as a newly formed trio called Love Moon. In that time alone, however, the Oakland group is already set to unveil its first full-length album titled “Clouded Bliss,” and the result is just as scuzzy and crusty as anyone could’ve hoped for.

Right from the get-go, Love Moon brings it with a Torche-esque headbanger called “Not With Me,” promptly giving listeners new and old a taste of what’s to come before jumping into more rippers like “Afterlife,” “Dopefiend” and the album’s title track. But despite their undoubted obsession with classic Melvins heaviness, Love Moon isn’t afraid to intermingle elements of shoegaze and punk into the mix on tracks like "Born Ready" and "Starstuff," ultimately making this record a much more intriguing listen than your typical sludge rock product.
