Music Review Archives. Band Stuff. Work Stories in Progress.

Check out some of the ExMogul Music reviews from the archives, below.

I reviewed music on and off for about 15 years, while I took a break from singing and doing gigs.

Now I've flipped that around. And here's my band, SPEED LIMIT 70.

Gaby Moreno

Gaby Moreno is a singer/songwriter originally from Guatemala, now living in Los Angeles. The two songs featured on her site hint at great things to come.

The track "Wrong Side of the Road" has a funky/swampy groove in its chorus that brings to mind the work of MOFRO, with its octave harmonies, gospel backing vocals, and tasty guitar licks. This is in contrast with the verses, which nicely feature breathy intimate vocals, and bring to mind the sound of Colbie Caillat.

"Still Unknown" highlights the fluidity of Moreno's voice and has sparse musical treatment that features delicate acoustic strumming, subtle keyboard string swells and ethereal backing vocals.
