Matt Schneider, who records as Moon Bros., is part of a wave of progressive, folk-influenced Americana types that’s been particularly strong lately, and he also has ties to the Chicago post-rock community. Next month, he’ll release his album These Stars, and members of Tortoise, Iron & Wine, and Cairo Gang play on it. The album’s title track is a loose, glimmering, ramshackle folk ballad, a real pretty piece of work. Listen to it below.
These Stars is out 7/8 on Western Vinyl.
