Another Record Sleeve with Mosley Bar - An Interview

Existe atualmente um preconceito brutal contra o termo "indie", claro mesmo porque tornou-se pejorativo e eu, sinceramente, não vou me estender em maiores delongas ou explicações do porque antes era um termo legal e hoje não mais, e blá, blá, blá....Na realidade o ponto aqui é a banda a ser abordada, um típica banda "indie", os ingleses do Mosley Bar, tem tudo de indies, inclua-se aí a idade dos caras, que certamente deve estar nos vinte e poucos ano.

Sonoramente tem muito de música indie, de novo, inglesa, Arctic Monkeys fica evidente, e os caras citam a exaustão, eu mesmo, não sou um conhecedor da obra dos Monkeys, salvo, os dois primeiros álbuns, que são ok, depois disso, desconheço, mas, porque o Mosley Bar aterrizou nas páginas do TBTCI?

Porque aqui é um espaço para música indie, claro, e o Mosley Bar é uma boa banda, que vive no submundo dos bons sons, óbvio, e os caras vão bem além da influência dos Monkeys, eles mesmos não devem nem conhecer, mas sem querer absorveram as clássicas influências inglesas, Smiths, e outras bandas dos 80´s, Another Records Sleeve é um ótimo EP que os caras lançaram e vale a audição.

Ser indie no caso no Mosley Bar é bacana.
