As a core member of The War On Drugs, Dave Hartley’s most recent single, “Lost Moon,” follows similar atmospheric, spaced-out sensations found in his previous three LPs under the moniker, Nightlands. I would say my favorite part of this track is the soulful screech emitted from the slide guitar, infusing itself into the subtlest background moments. This is a hipster lullaby, a sonic interpretation of what “Goodnight Moon” might sound like if it were read by a musician dressed in thick, black-framed glasses and a tight red flannel: “It feels like the moon / Is lost in the sky / It’s filling my room / With silver light.” The album cover represents the setting, sun-soaked cliffs shadowed by an imminent night sky. The layers are fantastically mellow with a consistent acoustic guitar strumming under the slide, snare, bass and distant-sounding horn solo. The keys lightly guide the listener out from under the covers and on a journey toward the night-light. “Lost Moon” doesn’t provoke any real moments of climax and therefore, tend to lose me, but for a tune before bed, it might just create the calming factor you need.

Before we say goodnight, stay tuned for his March 5th full-album release, I Can Feel The Night Around Me, under Western Vinyl.
