There is nothing raw about RAW MOANS. The electronic ambience of Singer/Sampler Joseph Vorachack and synthesist Jeff Graves is highly controlled, loop-heavy, and very, very, dirty. Steady, sultry beats and soft synth lines provide background to Vorachack’s reverb-drenched falsetto as he sings about love, sex, and sleepless nights alone. This formula works wonders for them, and their sensual songs are addictive. RAW MOANS’s organic mixture of electronic sounds and very human sentiments proves, if nothing else, that indie music can be sexy.
