Truth Or Consequences, New Mexico-based duo Naomi Sparrow and Rob Stroup, together known as Moody Little Sister – played in Eugene and visited the KRVM studios for a live interview prior to their show.
The two musicians, who formerly resided in Portland, have relocated to New Mexico. The move seems to be working out well.
Their upcoming “Great Big Mama Sunshine” release (due out the end of this month) is thirteen tracks of melodic, roots-influenced pop filled to the brim with warm desert vibes.
“Great Big Mama Sunshine” also features more guitar sound than their last. The band self-recorded and produced it at their new studio, Desert Enchantment Recording. We think songs like stellar “711 Lucky Street” are sure to garner more fans for the band.
“The benefit of self-producing allowed us to be more selective and keep at it until we felt like we got the right take,” explains Sparrow. “The results to me are an album that is going to match the experience someone has live with us, and I will probably go about all my vocal performances this way in the future.”
She adds: “From a musical stance, I think we are overdue for a strong female representation in Americana music…I think the Southwestern / soul sound of the album is a refreshing take on some of our musical roots.”
