Long Beach, Calif.-based newcomers Mr. Moonshine have made quite a first impression on their self-titled debut. It’s an overtly theatrical collection of alternative rock tunes, which comes as little surprise when you consider the band came together when three of its four members (brothers Anthony and Andrew Pedroza and Daysmel Muniz) were in the Big Apple performing the rock opera “Lolpera.”

Mr. Moonshine CDWith the Pedroza brothers handling vocal duties throughout, Mr. Moonshine have plenty of potential. Set highlight “Comfort Me With Absinthe” is terrific — and the first song the band wrote together — and the guys also score with keepers “My Left Hand,” “Message in Green Glass,” “Zelda,” “Wolves on Parade” and “Bend or Break.”

They’ve built a solid reputation touring throughout Southern California, even landing a residency at the House of Blues Anaheim each month. Hopefully they’ll bring their road show to the Pittsburgh region in the very near future. (Jeffrey Sisk)
