Praise for Moon Taxi and Let The Record Play:

“Their musicianship remains tight, intricate and top-notch” – Associated Press

“Moon Taxi fearlessly melds rock with pop hooks, clever synths and roots touchstones gleaned from their home in Music City.” – Parade

“Moon Taxi’s offering of optimistic pop rock serves well as an energy and mood booster…” – PopMatters

“The band captures a sense of inclusivity and fearless emotions through the lyrics.” – DuJour

“Over the last few years, Nashville’s Moon Taxi have worked their way up from Bonnaroo buzz-band to something approaching Kings of Leon country, playing a pleasingly cross-bred rock – a little indie, a little proggy, kinda poppy.” – Rolling Stone

“Moon Taxi a jam band – that is, if its instrumental excursions weren’t so concise, carefully thought-out and frequently refined in the years they’ve spent touring.” – NPR

“Spacious rock, that’s begging to fill huge venues.” – MagnetMagazine.com

“Sing-along songs and catchy, jam-worthy interludes.” – Noisey

“Moon Taxi evolves from ‘college project’ to rock stars.” – The Tennessean

“A band that’s moving forward by leaps and bounds.” – PopMatters

 

New York, NY – January 19, 2018 – Today, Nashville’s own alt-rock-five-piece band Moon Taxi releases their highly anticipated fifth studio album, Let The Record Play via RCA Records. PRESS HERE to stream or purchase the album. Produced and mixed by Spencer Thomson (the band’s guitarist), Let The Record Play is a triumphant moment of rock-pop exploration that proves that Moon Taxi is a rare band that can address the temperature of our turbulent times while also providing the euphoric musical escapism we so badly need.

Tying into the album release, the band performed their hit single “Two High” on The TODAY Show/Megyn Kelly TODAY. The song is a global streaming hit, reaching #1 at Triple A Radio, is being played on Sirius XM’s The Spectrum, Alt Nation and Jam On, and has garnered over 74 million streams on Spotify alone. PRESS HERE to watch the performance and PRESS HERE to listen/watch the video for “Two High.” “Two High” is also being featured in the 2018 Jeep Compass commercial.

Let The Record Play is a document of one of the most creative bands to emerge from Nashville’s immensely fertile landscape – and one that has been thriving on the festival scene for years, bringing their electric performances to Coachella, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo and beyond. Beloved enough in their hometown to sell out two nights at the famed Ryman Auditorium this past October, this LP, their RCA Records debut, is certain to catapult them even higher.

In support of Let The Record Play, Trevor Terndrup (vocals, guitarist), Spencer Thomson (guitarist and producer), Wes Bailey (keyboardist), Tommy Putnam (bassist) and Tyler Ritter (drummer) will embark on their Let The Record Play tour starting in February followed by a performance at Bonnaroo in June.
