Just picking up the news of this sweet reissue on the way from Concentric Circles. Moonlove may not be the most prominent name on the lists of indie-pop heads hungry for reissues, but a peek into their 1985 album May Never Happen reveals plenty to love for the bedroom-bound jangle bunch. The album was originally released in an edition of 25 tapes in their hometown of Kent, Ohio and didn’t stray much further. While the band might have seemed moored in the Midwest, they’re able to evoke far-flung corners of bittersweet indie pop from the time — feeling at home with Flying Nun bands, the Pacific Northwest sweater set, and some VU hangover from their sweeter moments. The record was recorded on a rigged setup that included a cassette deck and Betamax recorder and it gives the album a bit of a warm flannel filter. The record arrives on November 15th in an edition of 15 along with a book featuring some background on the band.
