Minor Moon, the Chicago-based cosmic Americana group led by multi-instrumentalist Sam Cantor, have an upcoming third full length album “Tethers”, out March 26th via Ruination Record Co. & Whatever’s Clever. On his newest song as Minor Moon, Chicago multi-instrumentalist Sam Cantor takes on a feeling that has become all-too-familiar over the past year: a nebulous sense of confusion and loss, most debilitating because of how difficult it is to even recognize, let alone put into words—or music, for that matter. Cantor manages that last bit admirably on “Under an Ocean of Holes,” the second single from—and the creative key to, as he explains—his cosmic country project’s forthcoming third album “Tethers”, out March 26th on Ruination Record Co. and Whatever’s Clever.

Having previously shared the unhurried No Lightning Fix, the band have now offered up a second taste from the album in the shape of the simmering Under An Ocean Of Holes.

So, if a healthy amount of Midwestern twang, some engaging Neil Young style grooves, eye-opening atmospherics, and warm psychedelia are up your street you should check out both asap.
