8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 20 December 2011
Moon Glyph reappear on my radar with 'Selva Surreal', the debut LP from plucky upstarts Buffalo Moon. I'm pretty sure I've heard these folks before and I remember them giving of the same Stereolab-esque vibe they're nailing on opening tracks 'Vida Canibel' and 'Amores Perros'. It's an affectionate 'lets spend the day at the beach and have tea and cake' style indie pop that I've heard variations on many times before yet can't help but be charmed by time and time again. They certainly are a talented bunch of players willing to rock that craft to get results. The rhythm section sounds particularly accomplished and do a fine job of lifting these indie ditties into the playful terrain of Chicago bands such as The Sea And Cake and Tortoise. Ties in nicely with what I saying about Stereolab before. Adventurous and very continental sounding business from a band hailing from Minneapolis. Where's the New Jack Swing?
