One doesn’t normally think of Dover New Hampshire as a home for neo-psychedelic rock, but MMOSS is the latest of outstanding purveyor of this genre and they call the “Live Free or Die” state home. When Woods invites a band to tour with them, as they did with MMOSS for a month this Spring, its a pretty good clue to us that the band will be a quality outfit. At 285 Kent a couple of weeks back, it was obvious that MMOSS was the real deal. Our first impression, with the two guitarists flanking a female vocalist/flutist, was their resemblance to the excellent Bardo Pond. And this comparison isn’t far off, in terms of the live sound. But MMOSS’s album, the superb i, is a collection of psych-garage nuggets. At 285, the band’s set featured a couple of shorter songs, but MMOSS did stretch it out for a couple of numbers before the too-short set ended with an extended jam. We are streaming “Kitty Sorrow”, a standout track from the album performed to perfection.

I recorded this set in the same manner as those of Woods and Crystal Stilts and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
