Willy Moon, "Here's Willy Moon" (Interscope Records)
Willy Moon will soon be gyrating his way into your music collection. Fact.
His distinct features, tall frame, fancy footwork, dapper suits and infectious 1960s pop grooves make this New Zealander hard to miss. The 23-year-old's self-produced debut album, "Here's Willy Moon," is sharp and slick, much like Moon himself.
His album packs a punch, from his unique tone and string section on "Get Up" to surf guitars on "I Wanna Be Your Man." This is high energy rock 'n' roll with a modern twist.
The real star here is the pop-friendly "Yeah Yeah," which was used in ads for the iPod last year. If you're still sitting down after hearing this one, you need to see a doctor.
There's also the hip-hop-inspired "She Loves Me," and the David Lynch-esque "Murder Ballad" closes the show. At just less than 30 minutes long, you'll want to savor each beat on this energetic debut.
