Moccasin has created its own natural sound entangling thick swells of guitar with dreamy vocal melodies, rooted by a heavy rhythm section. They have erected a sonic giant; weilding fuzz pedals, reverb tanks, and tape echoes as a means to forge immense walls of analog sound.

Biography

After playing the Larimer Lounge showcase at SX SW in 2005, Moccasin released a six-song EP which has been very well received by the press and their fans. The release of Last Leaf was followed by a month long US tour. The band successfully covered the west and east coasts. This full-sounding record meshes hints of British rock(shoegaze), American psychedelia, and thick, dreamy aural arrangements. Comparisons have been made to Ride, Black-Sabbath, Hawkwind, Sonic Youth, Spacemen 3, and the Verve.

We have played with friends: The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dead Meadow, The Anniversary, J. Mascis, The Black Angels, (members of the Flaming Lips), The Low Flying Owls, and MANY more...
