Milwaukee indie band Shoot Down The Moon played their new song Carry Me Carefully for the first time at an intimate gig organised by music discovery company, Sofar Sounds. Playing in their hometown in an intimate setting, the band gave lucky fans a glimpse of what’s the come from them. I reviewed their album Meetings And Greetings way back in late 2012 and found it to be a great mix of American indie and headbanging rock. They appear to have transitioned into a more folk sound now.
Sofar Sounds (Sofar standing for Songs From A Room) started in a North London flat when a group of frustrated live music lovers decided to put the magic back into gigs. It organises private gigs for real music lovers that connects bands and artists directly to their fans in real, humble settings. What began in a single flat in London has now stretched to a business spanning 150 cities around the world. This gig was held at the Art Is For Lovers Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
