Making an album is a big task that often involves a lot of people, so you’ve got to hand it to do-it-yourselfers like Moon Mission Death Squad for paving their own way. Oklahoma City brothers Mason and Daniel Weaver are self-styled “indie/vegan/bike rock slackers that play power pop” with a seething contempt for the music industry, and they don’t want the help.
‘Catastrophist’ is taken from 2003’s ‘Ignore Your Problems And They’ll Go Away’. It’s a melancholy tale of inevitable change told with lo-fi keyboards and guitar. There might be some hyperbole in his message, but Mason sings with the weariness of a man who is honestly convinced that the end is near.
