Next Big Thing Alert: The Moondoggies

Sub Pop spin-off Hardly Art continues to do a fine job bringing Seattle talent to the forefront. Similar to label-mates (and mC faves), The Dutchess & The Duke, The Moondoggies take an old sound and make it new again. Their brand of bluesy folk rock has one foot on the altar at the tent revival and the other on stage at the Double Deuce. Their first full-length, Don't Be a Stranger, released last month is an impressive debut of pure Americana. Checking the rearviewmirror but always looking on down the road, The Moondoggies are on their way.

Listen: "Changing"

Listen: "I Want You to Know"

They don't appear to be venturing far from the Pacific any time soon, but we'll keep you posted if they make their way through the Middle.

Go get the album.
