“Moist” Songs

Ah, “Moist”! The word that makes so many people, myself included, cringe upon hearing it or when forced to say it aloud. Not surprisingly, there aren’t that many songs — at least non-sketchy ones — with the word “Moist” in their titles. But I did find a few that are worth listening to. For those of you who enjoy commentary, I included some here for each song — not snarky repartee, per se, more like my internal thought processes when choosing songs for a post. Which you might find interesting. I dunno. Anyway…enjoy!  ~  JH

1)  Bruxing  ~  “Moist Ointment”  (Fairly generic rock instrumental, a bit repetitive, but consistently interesting.)

2)  Divisor  ~  “Moist Upper Lip”  (Dark industrial electronica. Instrumental, lots of nice weird stuff going on.)

3)  Jan Van Gold  ~  “Moist Mother”  (Folkish pop-rock with lovely vocals, albeit fairly unintelligible lyrics.)

4)  Cult Maze  ~  “S. Moist”  (Eminently listenable indie-rock tune, with grungy vox and jangly guitars.)

5)  Illogical SRL  ~  “Moist”  (This is odd. Opera-like vocals with hip-hop/funk-style beats. Pretty chill, but profoundly weird.)

6)  Boon  ~  “Moist”  (Rollicking rhythm, strong bluesy female vox — this is really nice!)

7)  The Arctic Zone  ~  “Soft, Moist”  (Pleasant, if rather benign, rock instrumental. Quite short, too.)

8)  Dust  ~  “Moist Tree”  (Nice modern rock/nu metal tune with solid instrumentation and rock vox.)

9)  First Swede…  ~  “Magical Moist”  (New Age-y instrumental song with lots of wonderful strings. Simply lovely.)

10)  The Reekers  ~  “Son, It’s Moist”  (Exceptionally nice soft-rock instrumental with a beach-music feel to it. Good stuff!)

11)  The Shed  ~  “All Moist A Bad Party”  (This has a kind of Grateful Dead-Simon & Garfunkel hybrid feel to it. Every bit as strange and wonderful as you’d expect it to be.)

12)  Destroyed By Voices  ~  “A Moist Moment”  (What a great little instrumental. I enjoyed all 38 seconds of it.)

13)  Christopher Clarke  ~  “Moist Sugar”  (This somber yet soothing instrumental sounds very much like it belongs on the soundtrack of a movie. Which is exactly where it came from. So there ya go!)

14)  Samuel F. Scott & The B.O.P.  ~  “Moist People”  (I hear this, I feel like I should be sitting on the beach soaking up sunshine and nothing else. Perfectly chill summer song!)

15)  Noxious Foxes  ~  “Moist Definitely”  (That sounds really hard to play. Not for them, apparently. Excellent, hard-rocking jam.)
