It’s always exciting when members from different fantastic bands come together to form a supergroup, though the resulting music isn’t always as spectacular as the stuff from their original bands. Summer Moon’s With You Tonight, however, is an example of when it really works well. Au Revoir Simone’s Erika Spring, Lewis Lazar, The Strokes’ Nikolai Fraiture, and Like’s Tennessee Thomas come together as Summer Moon to dole out a muggy dance rock jangler, heavily imbued with a funking, whimsical groove. It reminds me of Modest Mouse’s more uptempo offerings, but drenched in disco flavored, flushed pluckiness. This one’s fit for a very good twirl around the room.
