Mouton — Fear and Trembling
“Rife with hooks and snarled twang, “Other Minds” is an ear pleaser. Opening with storming piano riff, the lo-fi home recording feels anthemic from the outset. The weariness in Mouton’s voice is earnest as he’s self-aware of his introvert tendencies.”
The eponymous rock and roll project of Pete Mouton stays busy. Aptly listed as one of the “Hardest Working DIY Bands on Tour in 2018” by Audiofemme, the band played nearly a hundred shows last year while also demoing songs for an upcoming debut LP. Deviating from the two post-punk leaning releases, the sound draws heavily from Big Star and Tom Petty, but with an energy and brevity more akin to late 70’s budget rock and power pop à la The Nerves.
