SPRIGHTLY MOANS

The music has a lot of guitar, and a lot of drums. My favorite song of the three songs that are available on Demos II is Twin Kilns. It kind of reminds me of Tomorrow Never Knows by The Beatles. And that’s mainly due to the drums in the song. And a little bit of that far away vocal sound that is in Tomorrow Never Knows. The lyrics are honest, the vocalists clearly states that ‘nothing good can come of this.’

SPRIGHTLY MOANS - DEMOS II

Hailing from Austin, TX, Sprightly Moans has carved out a unique sound scape in the Lone Star State. Fronted by Dave Wirth and saddled with Jeff Olson, this two man show packs a massive punch. Not quite your Black Keys duo, though the amount of sonic space that is filled with two musicians is remarkable. Let me say this, the music of Sprightly Moans will not be everyone’s cup of tea. For those who drink the elixir will be pleased that they let them into their ear drums. 

Dave’s vocals are unapologetic and the drum beat takes control of your lower extremities. Each song I listened to had two songs in each; the standard vocals and instruments, then end with a parallel instrumental section with high energy. In Twin Kilns, the outro takes you into the sunset with the percussion. Dots and Dashes shows us some of the higher vocal register reaches of Mr. Wirth. The symmetry of the drum rolls and distorted guitar fit like a glove and make sense of the madness. Brinksmanship takes the dirty grunge sound with heartfelt vocals, helping tell the story. 

Having three releases into the market, this group is legit and for real. When they show up on the bill at your favorite music venue, you would regret not having your ears ringing the next day. Don’t mess with Sprightly Moans.

Quanto sono cazzuti? Un casino.
Che genere fanno? Un genere figo.

REVIEW: SPRIGHTLY MOANS - DEMOS II

By Mister Growl of Mistergrowl.blogspot.com.

Sprightly Moans play music for beer drinking, high-fiving, and billiard disputes, capturing the raucous spirit of a bar at last call, with rhythms that roll with tumbleweed abandon and riffs that can punch holes through sheet metal.

IT'S TIME TO DEMONSTRATE THE NATURE OF NIHILISTIC ROCK IN YOUR EARBUDS.

By Chris Romans of Heartheindie.com.

Sprightly Moans, the musical outlet of duo Dave Wirth and Jeff Olson, is a strange rock act with it’s sight on deconstructing the philosophical underpinnings of music, as well as the common economic structure found within the music industry. Demos II, an aptly titled mini-album of sorts, showcases 3 tracks from this band with a brief but definitive run time of about 12 minutes. At times through my multiple listens through this music it can be difficult to really pin it down. From the opening minutes, the influence from garage punk and metal bands was obvious, but this is also something more than just that.
