Biography

moe. | BIOGRAPHY
After two decades of writing, recording and touring together, veteran jam band moe. took stock of where they’d been, released a retrospective, then turned the page.
Two years later the Northeast-based five-some has opened a new chapter in the moe. story. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LA LAs is the band’s first completely new collection since 2008, and while creative ... Read more in Amazon's moe. Store

Editorial Reviews

It is the first studio release in four years and has been well worth the wait! With 13 yet-to-be-released songs, the album is a rich body of work that is sure to please fans both old and new. Moe is known for their intricate studio work. Their last 2 albums, Dither and Wormwood, received 4 stars by RollingStone Magazine and 4 stars by Blender magazine, respectively. Moe expects to continue defying odds in today's music industry and stay one of the biggest independent bands in the country.

Customer Reviews

A good song may end up being "commercial", but only because IT'S A GOOD SONG.
Christopher K. McCann
So if you, like me, are a long-time moe.ron who has enjoyed the band's progression over the years, you'll love this CD.
Sol Rosenberg
That said, pick up The Conch and you will not be disappointed, unless you like standing still.

As a long time moe.ron, having seen them over 50 times and I attend the annual SummerCamp and moe.Down festivals, I am always uneasy when they release "studio" albums (I put "studio" in quotes becasue they record the songs live and then tweak them in the studio) because they are predominantly a live band, and a killer one at that. The Conch continues moe.'s sound of rockin' jamming, with a little more emphasis on the rock and a little less on the jammin'. Now I know that some other moe.rons will complain that they are departing from the sound that got them where they are today. But I say that if you stay with one style and don't expand, you get stagnant and then people claim that you are standing still.

That said, pick up The Conch and you will not be disappointed, unless you like standing still.

Given the fact that moe.'s previous CD, "Wormwood", represented a masterpiece within the jam-based community and given the fact that I had been underwhelmed upon hearing most of the songs from the new CD when performed live over the past couple of years, my expectations for "The Conch" were admittedly low. But if there's one thing this long-time "moe.ron" SHOULD know by now, it's that you should never doubt this band when it comes to crafting intelligent, grooving and infectious songs. Needless to say, this CD FAR exceeded my expectations, so much so that I view it as more of a continuation of the excellence exhibited on the aforementioned "Wormwood". Yeah, it's that good, folks.

moe. chose to record the core of both "Wormwood" and "The Conch" in a live setting for a simple reason: the energy of even the best jam/improv-oriented bands like moe. is typically lost upon entering the sterile studio environment. By recording these CDs live, then performing studio dubs and post-production work, moe. is able to give the fans the energy and creativity that draws them to their shows in the first place. Of course, it takes a band comprised of stellar musicians such as moe. to be able to pull off such a feat. Lesser acts are forced to utilize the studio as a crutch which is designed to piece together fragments of polished, "studio-friendly" music in order to create a final product which can be mass-marketed to the American Idol types. Bands like moe., on the other hand, thrive in live and improvisational settings, allowing them to take entire pieces of live music and apply post-production "bits and pieces" in the studio for an end result which is more accurately representative of what you will hear from the band when you actually see them live. Simply put, moe.

First, let me address the "fans" who aren't fans. You know who you are, the ones who like the one-off songs by a band, but put them down for releasing something good. You disgust me. You probably wish that Okayalright wasn't on Wormwood, then it'd be perfect, right?

Wrong! Stop trampling on these hardworking bands, you fakers. I happen to like good songs, and if moe. decides to release an album full of them, so be it. A good song may end up being "commercial", but only because IT'S A GOOD SONG. This does not mean that they are changing, but by all means feel free to move on. The true fans will be happy to take your place.

Now let's get down to the real nitty-gritty:

The Conch is an album of what moe. does best and that is ROCK. Opening with Blue Jeans Pizza, you feel like you're at an exclusive party - just for you. Lost Along the Way & Tailspin are highlights, but then you get to this song. A song that at first sounds familiar - a little bit of Kids mixed with Crab Eyes, but there's something more.

Wind It Up is the reason to buy the album. A thirty second clip does you no good. This is the song moe. has been trying to make since they started. To compare them to one of there contemporaries: this is their Harry Hood. Just hearing it on the album you know you can see it becoming a monstrous live jam. Y Eaux Massa is the "reprise" of the end of Wind It Up.

You're at the halfway point, but moe's only getting started. Down Boy has this quirky, bouncy rhythm with a tight chorus. You can wait for the chorus, but then you can't wait for the verses. Honestly, I can see them ripping into some pretty crazy jams off of this one, too. I love the (albeit sparse) use of the guitar tube.

this is, quite simply, the best studio album moe. has ever put out. what pushes the conch past other studio efforts is the consistancy and excellence of the performances and the songs. there are simply no moments of weakness (moe. fans might remember overly frivolous tunes with unecessarily quirky lyrics that, while being certainly creative, might be difficult to take seriously and get behind emotionally) from albums past anywhere on the album, save for the 4 brief reprise/interludes scattered throughout the more fully-formed songs. this album shows moe. at the peak of their powers to date. and the excedingly high quality of their live shows during this time (i recently caught them in san diego and la in april, '07) provide a just and timely complement to the recent release of the album.

each song on the conch includes long and interesting solos and jams by chuck and al. and the jams are hard and heavy! this is when moe. is best, in my opinion - when they really turn up the volume and blast off, sonically. chuck and al's twin guitar attack steal the show on the conch, with, alternately, one guitarist crunching the power chords while the other guitarist plays guitar hero to compelling effect. i've always connected with chucks's playing in particular and the conch is an embarrassment of riches for us chuck fans. his phrasing and power on the conch are perfect.

i'm giving this album to all my music-loving fans who've either never heard of moe. or don't know too much about them. it's the perfect representation of a great rock band.
