Stream Moving Mountains & Prawn’s Split (Stereogum Premiere)

James Rettig | November 23, 2015 - 10:57 am

Taken side by side, Moving Mountains and Prawn highlight each other’s strengths, and make a compelling argument that they’re best taken together, and on their own. That’s what good splits are supposed to do, and this is a very good split. We’ve already heard Mov Mou’s “Deathless” and Prawn’s “Seas,” and the other two tracks here are just as strong. Both “Abby Normal” and “Slopes” are tighter compositions by comparison, but they still take their time to build and spread out — the elegant yearning of the former, the taut escalation of the latter. It’s the sound of two bands at the top of their game — listen below.
