Moving Panoramas / "In Two" / 2019
Spacey but not alienating, loud yet still light, painting panoramic sound against a moving melodic backdrop, Moving Panoramas make boot gaze dream rock, led by songwriter, Leslie Sisson.
It all began in Brooklyn, where Leslie lived while playing in a number of touring bands. She came back to her home state of Texas to be closer to her family after navigating through a series of life changing, traumatic events. This led to an array of songs that shaped the birth of the band. The debut LP One, released on Modern Outsider Records in 2015, conjured a wave of dream gaze and international acclaim.
Moving Panoramas break the shell of One veritably In Two with the new record, expanding room for more diversity, rhythm, volume, instrumentation such as the swimmy pedal steel, plus special guests Matthew Caws of Nada Surf, Sabrina Ellis of A Giant Dog/Sweet Spirit, and past Panoramas Karen Skloss, Jolie Flink, and Laura Colwell. Over the years, the band's lineup featured a rotating cast of talent, but has luckily landed on the current Baby Blues crew with Cara Tillman, Rosie Castoe, Jody Suarez, and Phil McJunkins.
