Blogovision 2021: Στο Νο 11 του Γεράσιμου Moin - Moot!


For all that the marriage of spoken word and post-hardcore aesthetics recalls Slint and their many acolytes, dynamic vacillations between constriction and crescendo are wholly foreign to Moot!’s incessant mid-tempo march. Moin are dealing in median music, on occasion threatening to veer into excitable punk riffage or languish in rolls of guitar scuzz (as on pensive closer ‘It’s Never Goodbye’, its expansive chords oscillating ad infinitum) but never really deviating from their unparsable course. The band acknowledge that Moot! has a peculiar straightforwardness to it, observing, “All of this sounds very matter of fact, which is correct. It’s immediate music that isn’t pretending to be anything but.” Immediate it may be, but the effect is far from wholly conventional. (Quietus)
