((Mojave 3)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness
MORE BANDS WE LIKE >
England's Mojave 3 comprise former members of Britpop behemoths Slowdive and Chapterhouse. But don't think you already know what they sound like. Really, these guys and girl play around with the alt-folk-pop sounds that bands like Wilco brought to prominence. Since 1994, the quartet has built up a solid reputation for exquisite, subtle music that wore its heart on its sleeve. In recent years, however, they've been focusing more on the melodic than the melancholic. This newfound sense of optimism is readily apparent on the band's most recent record, Puzzles Like You, on their longtime label 4AD. Think poppy instead of poopy.
