    Introducing…Willy Moon!

    Self-made and self-proclaimed authority resistant repeller, artist Willy Moon will release his eponymous album, Here's Willy Moon, on April 2 (Cherrytree/Island Records).

    Although just 23, Willy Moon proves that age is just a number as he slinks through different decades with a swift ease. Inspired by the physical energy of Cab Calloway and Michael Jackson, the concision of the Ramones, and the style of film noir, Moon appreciates these musical giants through the gaze of his wit and irrefutable sound.

    To say the least, Moon knows what he wants. So much so that he wastes no time creating superfluous track fillers. This ideology manifests itself in Here's Willy Moon, which is less than 29 minutes long. Only one of its 12 songs lasts more than three minutes and not a single note is squandered. "My album is short like my songs. I always loved the relentlessness and excitement of that first Ramones album and there's something of that spirit in there. I think it will surprise people who've only heard 'Yeah Yeah', there's some slower, more atmospheric songs on it and one that even lastS for over three minutes...ha!"

    Willy Moon wrote, recorded and produced his debut album all with a few tracks being produced by Pulp's Steve Mackey. Like a sculptor effortlessly works his clay into a mold from an ambiguous slab, Moon uses his infectious beats and melodic lyrics to reconstruct the pure sounds of rock'n'roll that have been deep-frozen in 1965, with a flow that can only be defined as Willy Moon. He does not afford the listener a gray area to meander; rather his choices are decisive and bold, and thus we are better for it.

    Track Listing:

    1.Get Up
    2.Railroad Track
    3.Yeah Yeah
    4.What I Want
    5.Fire
    6.I Wanna Be Your Man
    7.Working for the Company
    8.Shakin'
    9.She Loves Me
    10.I Put a Spell On You
    11.My Girl
    12.Murder Ballad

    Will you get caught between generations with the wonderful Willy Moon this April?
