Unsubscribe | Full Moon, Empty Heart

"This is the third release from Sacramento's 99 Tales.  I find this to be a very nice change from most of the stuff that I listen to.  Their music has a very unique, soothing and mature edge to it.  At first listen, the term rockabilly or even psychobilly comes to mind.  After repeated listens, you begin to notice the surf guitars.  Alternative country may be another description, but don't forget about John Doe, the Pixies, or even a band like Throwing Muses.  In the front of the mix, strong vocals are shared by Vince and Kim.  While they do not use the minor chord harmonies that made X famous, you can't help but listen for comparisons between the two bands.  This release is full of moody and emotional songs.  All in all, 99 Tales' Full Moon Empty Heart is very refreshing, while still no where near mainstream."
