Moonshine | Broke Joke


Moonshine isTulsa vocalist and guitarist Sarah Dickenson and drummer/bassist Conor Robb. They have what looks like a three-song self-titled EP, that’s straight-no-chaser raunch rock. There’s nothing fancy here, no instrumental gimmicks, samples — just an old-school guitar-jarring drive. And that makes the band’s chosen name all that more apropos. The music is a pretty slick slice of punk and garage, and my favorite track is “Broke Joke”, which begins with Dickenson hammering out these obstinate opening verses: “Daddy called and said I’m in trouble / I pour myself another double / And drink away what people say / Cause I don’t need em anyway .” The style would easily fit into old 80s or 90s radio rock, but the inventive guitar melody gives it a modern sense too. You can follow the band at facebook and bandcamp. — David D. Robbins Jr.
