Sub Pop Records have signed Poor Moon
, a new project featuring Christian Wargo
(Fleet Foxes, Crystal Skulls), Casey Wescott
(Fleet Foxes) and brothers Ian
and Peter Murray
(The Christmas Cards).
The band, named for frontman and primary songwriter Christian Wargo’s favorite Canned Heat song, began four years ago as a long distance project with demos being created and sent back and forth while Wargo and Wescott were touring in support of the Fleet Foxes 2008 self-titled debut and Ian and Peter living in the Bay area.
The band was eventually signed up by Sub Pop and the new band’s debut album Illusion was recorded with help from engineer Jared Hankins. The record is due for release on March 27. Check out the track “People in Her Mind” below, along with the tracklisting and a list of the band’s Spring tour dates.
