Minor Moon is not your daddy’s dad rock. The Chicago-based band concocts a melodic, spacious, groovy, twangy, freaky sound that’s rooted and ambitious, detailed and wild. “It’s like Grizzly Bear but more intimate,” said one local musician with a really great ear. And it’s a band that increasingly sounds like itself.

Minor Moon’s latest record, An Opening (released via Midwest Action / Ruination Record Co. in February 2019) is “lush, stately” (Chicago Reader) and “completely captivating” (Happy Mag). Songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Sam Cantor’s lyrics tend to explore alternating states of alienation and connection in contemporary life, chewing on some of The Big Questions in a way that is “hugely personal and yet reassuringly universal” (Atwood Magazine). Minor Moon also includes Nathan Bojko on drums, Michael Downing on bass, Colin Drozdoff on keyboards, and Konstantine Stebliy on lap steel guitar.
