ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PERHAPST IS JOHN MOEN FROM THE DECEMBERISTS! ALBUM ALSO FEATURES STEPHEN MALKMUS PLAYING GUITAR.

Former Elliott Smith/Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks drummer, John Moen, a current member of The Decemberists, used his time off from touring to make Perhapst’ s self-titled debut.

"Perhapst" is filled with quirky, catchy, hook-laden indie-pop, experimental folk-rock, and even some twang for flavor, all delivered with a smirk and a smile.

John Moen plays the majority of instruments on the record. Friends such as engineer Eric Lovre (of the Dharma Bums) also lent some instrumentation help, and Stephen Malkmus assisted Moen, too, playing some guitar on the record.

The live band consists of: John Moen, Chris Funk (also a current member of The Decemberists), Jonathan Drews (Sunset Valley), and Eric Lovre (Dharma Bums).

Some may remember John Moen as the front man for NW favorites The Maroons, or drummer for the widely popular early 90s indie-rock outfit Dharma Bums (Frontier Records). However, here, much like in The Maroons, Moen showcases his sweet, lullaby-esque vocals, dreamy melodies, and ability to create laid-back, sophisticated pop hooks with cloud-like softness, ensuring that anyone that lists to Perhapst’s self-titled record will walk away relaxed, at ease, and humming a song or two.

Love, love, love this album. Harbour is happily running through my head with great regularity.

I heard part of "Alamand" on Fresh Aire, pbs. and fell in love with the song. The four cuts available from CB Baby for listening are good, but don't compare. I'll buy the Album though politically I'm as far from the Dembrists politically and philosophically as you can possibly get. I urge Moen and Funk to leave Marxism alone.
