MOSCOT Music Saturdays Return to 118 Orchard

Posted on: January 25th, 2011 at 6:08 am by

At twenty degrees, it was no doubt a brisk afternoon for live music.  But that didn’t stop the return of MOSCOT Music: Saturday Sessions this past weekend at the corner glasses gallery on Orchard Street. The ongoing showcase of independent talent began anew with the Brooklyn-based outfit Le MOOD.

Bespectacled with MOSCOT frames, the quartet performed their cheery melodic pop for the two-dozen heads jammed in the narrow 118 Orchard space.  The cranked decibel level could also be heard on the sidewalk, where numerous passing window gazers stopped to peer inside, bopped to the music, and continued to their destination.  It was a fairly short set with plenty of toe-tapping tracks culled from a string of previously released EPs.

Le MOOD mashes musical elements of Weezer, Beach Boys, and the Lovin’ Spoonful to create some memorable three-minute earworms.  Check out “The Forest” and “Quarter Century Kid.”  Here is a brief video snippet of “Little One”:

Saturday’s gig was a prelude to their album release party at Santos Party House on February 18. Adventures in Stereo is their debut full length LP.
