Johnny and the Moon - Green Rocky Road

Wood block is so the new cowbell. Check out this track from Johnny and the Moon, a new band featuring Dante DeCaro of Wolf Parade (and ex-Hot Hot Heat). It's a pretty good song, a rustic, folksy number that strolls leisurely through Dylan-esque non-sequiturs and shimmery tambourines. But the part where it gets really good is during the harmonica solo, when that familiar clomp-clomp-clomp starts up in the background.

Unless, of course, it's not actually wood block being played there. Maybe it's claves? In that case, claves are so the new cowbell.

"Green Rocky Road" can be found on Johnny and the Moon's self-titled debut album, due out today on Kill Devil Hills Records.
