Pennied Days

(Domino)

The second album from Minneapolis band Night Moves, Pennied Days, is out now! Written and recorded by principle band members John Pelant and Micky Alfano, and produced by John Angello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, The Walkmen), the album feels warm with feeling, tinged with a deep appreciation for rock and roll’s most storied songwriters.

Formed in 2009 in the Twin Cities in the United States, Night Moves is composed at its core of Pelant and his 28-year-old partner in crime, Micky Alfano, with a cast of rotating friends and fellow musicians fleshing out the live act. Friends since high school, their bond was solidified when Alfano lent Pelant his copy of George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass, a luminous classic of turn-the-page melancholy that echoes through Pennied Days. Over time, Pelant and Alfano have broadened their scope to allow for a wide array of maverick influences, ranging from traditionalist heroes like Leon Russell and The Band to r’n’b originators Curtis Mayfield and Sly Stone to pre-punk experimentalists Suicide.

Pennied Days is distinctly modern and a great leap forward from 2012’s Colored Emotions – a promising follow up for a growing young band.
