Perhapst: Perhapst

John Moen is the drummer, banjo meister and sometimes melodica player with The Decemberists. In his spare time he writes quirky pop songs for Perhapst, a side-project featuring Chris Funk (The Decemberists), Jonathan Drews (Sunset Valley), and Eric Lovre (Dharma Bums).

The self-titled debut album is catchy affair, sounding a bit like Radiohead in their Pablo Honey days. Playing most the instruments him self, with Stephen Malkmus lending a hand on guitar, his nasal voice is a perfect fit for the hook-driven songs. With a little distortion and leakage here and there Perhapst is a record that lo-fi and laidback in a single swoop.
