Local Love: St. Moses the Black

Columbus Alive

Artist: St. Moses the Black Song: "West of Tolovana"

Truly digging today's featured track, a serenely tripped-out shoegaze anthem from relative newbies St. Moses the Black. Listening to this relaxed, reverb-heavy pop jam is a lot like drifting in a hot air balloon over a glowing, translucent landscape. See if they can conjure such imagery Friday at Skully's, 1151 N. High St., where they'll release their first 7-inch with support from Flotation Walls, Happiness in Aeroplanes and Afortiori.

EDIT: Jamarr Mays (who took the above photo, I believe) informs me that this show will also be the last Columbus gig for Happiness in Aeroplanes, which used to be known as Vietnam II and Marseille, Marseille. Farewell, lads.
