"Rendezvous," Luna

-- Herman Snell & Alex Slawson

Fronted by former Galaxy 500 guitarist Dean Wareham, Luna was formed in 1991 and have released several notable gems in their 13 year career- namely, 1995's "Penthouse" LP with the unlisted track "Bonnie and Clyde," a single with Wareham singing in French alongside Laetitia Sadier from Stereolab. Their sound, which is influenced by Velvet Underground, Television and Lloyd Cole, has always embodied a certain subdued ferociousness. But on their latest, and unfortunately their last release, Luna perfects their subtlety to a tee. Rendezvous sees Luna exit the music scene a bit more mature than they entered it, but this is nothing but a good thing. We will miss you Luna!
