Hanemoon - Mammals

Jigsaw
(PZL172-2: 708527200063/PZL172-3)



Release date: January 24, 2020

This is the debut album from this new German band, and if you think they sound quite similar to Seaside Stars/Sealevel, then you've got remarkable ears, as this is the new project of Hans Forster of those very groups! This is a little more reserved and slightly less instantly catchy than his earlier work, but the songs are just as strong, and fit perfectly in that same vein; ie. midtempo jangly guitarpop a la later Teenage Fanclub or Real Estate. Of course, that's not to say that there aren't moments of pure pop brilliance, as the one-two punch of the album's first two tracks rank among the finest in Hans' oeuvre! This is a welcome return from one of Germany's best songwriters!
