Willy Moon, Magic Mouth

MATTHEW SINGER
7:30 pm., Wednesday May 29 | $10.
Dante's
350 W Burnside St.
 
[POP ETC.] Like many of this generation’s most annoying artists, New Zealand’s Willy Moon is less recognizable by his name or any particular single than by the iPod commercial his music appears in. “Yeah Yeah” is the sort of sleek post-Fatboy Slim mash-up that sounds specifically designed to sell Apple products. The rest of his debut album, Here’s Willy Moon, scrapes up pop touchtones from the 1950s through present-day and throws them into shuffle mode, never engaging with any of them in a way that displays more than a surface-level understanding. All Music beat me to the comparison, but he really does sound a lot like Jimmy Ray, the ’90s one-hit wonder who also mistook kitchen-sink eclecticism for innovative dynamism. So here’s Willy Moon today. And there he goes tomorrow!
