How did the band get together?

Kelsey and I we touring together as part of the backing band for a Danish band called The Migrant. I was playing accordion and she was playing violin. We were on the road for 6 weeks and during that time we started writing songs in the van to pass the time. During one stop in SF we stayed with my cousin Evan and wrote “That’s What She Say” together. After that we really started cranking them out and by the time we got back to Austin, we decided we wanted to make a band and make a record. Next came a full band lineup and the album Pillow Talk.

A trip to Texas wouldn’t be complete without taking in some alt-country sounds (and if a bit of soulful rock can be thrown into the mix, then that’s all the better). Nicki Bluhm And The Gramblers were more than happy to step up to the plate at our recent SXSW showcase, wowing the audience with a live performance of the laid-back ‘Toby’s Song’. They’re just one of the acts on our totally free downloadable SXSW playlist, by the way.

You know, if we were of a more tabloid slant, it’d be hard to resist the temptation to say: ‘you’d be barking mad to miss this unleashed performance from the Moondoggies’. But we’re not, so we won’t. Instead we’ll just issue a bit of straightforward advice: you really should check out the wonderful ‘Down The Well’ by the Moondoggies, as recorded live at our recent BAMM SXSW showcase. And if you like what you hear, grab a copy of their album Tidelands, or take a peek at their upcoming US tour dates.
