R. Stevie Moore w/Action! & Bad FriendPop/Rock
A self-described “self-taught overdubbist,” R. Stevie Moore may or may not be the greatest unsung pop auteur of the past 40 years — his total immersion in the tricks and tropes of post-Beatles pop makes him a lo-fi epigone of Roy Wood. Last year’s documentary I Am a Genius (And There’s Nothing I Can Do About It) showed Moore’s commitment to music-making in the face of overwhelming public indifference. The son of Nashville session bassist Bob Moore, R. Stevie is a one-man-band formalist with a feel for the subtle weirdness that powered all those records by his beloved late-’60s groups. Lurking in his vast catalog are excellent songs — I love such early tunes as “I Need Your Love” and “Records.” Also appearing are Nashville bands Action! and Bad Friend, both of whom have their own takes on ’60s pop.
