The follow-up to maverick saxophone group Moon Hooch’s eponymous 2013 debut, 2014’s This Is Cave Music, finds the trio moving in an even more aggressive and creatively adventurous direction. Still centered around the group’s mix of instrumental jazz and indie rock, This Is Cave Music also features vocals and a heavy electronic dance music influence. However, rather than bringing in keyboards, Moon Hooch stick to their inspired use of acoustic reed instruments, including bass clarinets and sundry saxophones. The result is an evocative, layered album that flows from ’80s synth pop to dubstep to avant-garde instrumentals.
