Biography

Moving Units was formed in 2001 by Chris Hathwell, Blake Miller, and Johan Boegli as a response to what the band refers to as "an uninspired music scene". The band selected the name Moving Units to express their distaste for the sales-obsessed mentality of the record industry. Thanks to their compelling mixture of post-punk and dance rock and incredible live shows, where ... Read more in Amazon's Moving Units Store

Seriously, this is the second coming of the Echoes album from last year. That is not a bad thing at all, because I absolutely loved Echoes. Now the obvious bass lines that have been ripped from previous said album may grate on some, for this listener, its just another slice of heaven.(Cure pun Intended) apart from the usual influences (Gang of Four, Wire, The Cure, New Order) I also hear a bit of The Buggles (the 6th track "Anyone" in particular) You can take that with a grain of salt, but I swear it's there.

Now for some odd reason the great b-side, "X and Y" was left off, but what is on here is worthy indeed. Between Us and them and Available will have you up and dancing in no-time. One difference is while records from the Rapture and Franz Ferdinand push the nerds on the dance floor, the groove is still rock and roll. That's also the case here, the base is defintely more electronic-disco and less art-house indie rock. But don't get me wrong, Dangerous Dreams fits PERFECTLY next to Franz Ferdinand, The Rapture, Ladytron, The Faint and the like. Fans of those bands need to add The Moving Units if they haven't already.

i guess you could put this band into the retro-rock phase that's taking over right now but i don't want to.

even though, moving units have some of that retro-rock flavor, they also surprise you with their bass lines and songs that could be played in clubs. all in all, after listening to their EP (which is very good as well!) this is a CD that does not disappoint.

Good CD. "Between Us and Them" is a great song, and I disagree with the reviews that this just copies the other NY dance-punk bands. I think it's a lot better than the Rapture and so on, and it's more catchy and less fake-funky. It's a little repetitive, but I enjoy it.

I picked up this album after I heard that they were coming to Des Moines to open up for one of my all time favorite bands, Nine Inch Nails. I figured, hey, Trent has a good ear for musical talent, after finding great talent out there like Manson, Prick, and Pig, so how could he go wrong with Moving Units? What an unusual pick, if you ask me. This band seems like a new wave ska band that was somehow transported to the present time from the eighties. Not that that is a bad thing. They have really catchy hooks, and after a couple of listening, they really grow on you. Not my favorite band by far, but definately not a bad one either. Spectacular tracks on the album include "Anyone and Scabs". Give it a listen. They just might grow on you.

Great CD ~ it grows on you with each listen (sort of like the first Interpol CD or Franz Ferdinand). One can hear smidgets of Gang of Four, the Police, New Order,...+ interwoven with their own style. Would love to see them play live ~ hopefully, MU will tour more extensively than just the big markets. Of course, it's music most of us won't hear on the radio because it doesn't fit "the formula" like Ashley Simpson so purchase the CD and hear some great music that you can turn others onto.

If you believe that the music scence today consists of whiny, over paid, American Idol, Pop, bubblegum phonies, check this out.

Moving Units is totally inspired on "Dangerous Dreams". The lyrics are soulful. The bass lines are thumping and original. I don't feel that the bass lines are copied, they are rather improvised upon.

You will play this CD over and over again. Buy it. You probably won't be disappointed.
