The Moondoggies: Adios I’m a Ghost

“I’m a Ghost”, the opening for the new 12 track Adios I’m a Ghost album from The Moondoggies, begins with 23 seconds of thick vocal harmony that is true to folk with its soothing and laid back nature.

The Moondoggies: Don’t Be A Stranger [Album Review]

Written by Fense Wow, everyone seems to be channeling 60s and 70s folk these days and you can add The Moondoggies to that ever-growing list of bands. Don’t Be A Stranger can be found somewhere between the folkier side of Crosby Stills Nash and Young, and country-ish side of Neil Young himself. All this is… Continue reading The Moondoggies: Don’t Be A Stranger [Album Review]
