Mobius Band are 3 guys, 2 of whom live in NYC (don't tell the Phoenix) and one of whom lives in Hatfield Mass. They put out an EP and an LP on Ghostly International last year. Ben only listens to Bob Dylan, Peter listens to the National and Cass McCombs, and Noam listens to Willie Nelson and Raymond Scott and Can and Dave Brubeck and a lot of weird shit. When they write music, they try to make it catchy and memorable, but also surprising and refreshing. One of the ways they do this is by performing on guitars and drums along with live performed electronics. They also do it by just writing really good, unpretentious, meaningful songs that aren't just genre exercises. They play at Bill's Bar on June 23.
