PASS LIKE POLLEN (CLOUDY CLEAR VINYL)
Chuck Moore's debut as Cartalk, Pass Like Pollen, is an album about holding on to what you've had and have-charting an emotional path for moving forward, while understanding the importance of looking back. Merging the loud, grungy guitars of classic indie rock and emo with country-esque songwriting and Moore's undeniably affecting punch of a voice, Pass Like Pollen hits you hard immediately and leaves a beautiful mark.Pass Like Pollen arrives on the heels of the buzz-building sensation singles "Noonday Devil" and "Wrestling," the latter of which was picked up by KEXP and resulted in a month-long residency earlier this year at the beloved and now-defunct L.A. music venue The Satellite. Indeed, Moore's had a quick ascent already-but much of Pass Like Pollen has been in the works since 2016, as they carefully constructed these nine songs before having decided on Cartalk as a band name, regularly turning to friend and producer Sarah Tudzin-also known for her work as the mastermind behind indie-pop outfit Illuminati Hotties-for her trusted advice.
