The Sextons

In 2008, after spending a couple of years playing as a solo artist in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Eric Moeckel asked 3 of his musical comrades to join him and help broaden the sound of his music. Layering dense guitar chords, boutique effects and fuzz bass, and creating eerie lead parts by pumping mellotrons and analogue synths through guitar amps, The Sextons’ sound developed into the spacey and harmonically rich music heard on their debut album.

“Armed with layered guitars and passionate drumming, The Sextons have managed to gel their instrumental intensity with harmonious, delicate vocals and beautifully crafted atmospheric undertones.” examiner.com

“Long for the time when Radiohead ripped on The Bends? The guitar work is spot-on, especially when set against Eric Moeckel’s crooning vocals.” bricks and mortar media

“This band writes pop songs that come with all the allureable trappings, and we wouldn’t be surprised if locals get taken hook, line, and sinker in 2010. We expect more buzz on the horizon! “ borangutan

“Nice, free-flowing smooth melodic pop from Minnesota’s The Sextons. This self-titled album is the debut from these four fellows but it has the sound and maturity of a group that has been playing together for years… [They] are off on a strong footing here, presenting credible, strong cuts.” babysue.com
