Moon Taxi is a band we have been following for a couple of years and quite frankly we feel they are under-loved and a little un-appreciated. They first caught our attention with "Morocco" off of "Mountains Beaches Cities" which was insanely catchy and sealed the deal with us with "Year Zero" from last years "Daybreaker." They have been staples this year and last on the festival circuit playing to big crowds.
So people get on the bandwagon and give these guys the love they deserve. Plus they have great hair (super important part of Rock Stardom).
Today the band posted in their YouTube feed a track from their performance from this years Dylanfest from the fabled Ryman Auditorium. They took Dylan's All Along The Watchtower and turned it into a master class for their virtuosity. Yes - people we all stand up and salute when this song comes on because we know the iconic Jimi Hendrix performance but this is a Bob Dylan tune and Moon Taxi did it right.
