Oklahoma City’s The Lunar Laugh succinctly outlined their musical mission on the title track of their 2015 debut album, Apollo. With its soaring harmonies and glorious melody, the trio (lead by singer-songwriters Jared Lekites and Connor Anderson) revealed their unashamed appreciation of ’60s and ’70s MOR pop. Two years on, The Lunar Laugh are ploughing a very similar ﬁ eld, but fans of glossy powerpop will no doubt view this as a good thing. Mama’s Boy is certainly derivative – you’ll hear shades of everyone from Pilot to Harry Nilsson in the mix – but at its heart is an earnest desire to deliver with good ol‘ fashioned memorable tunes. ‘Work In Progress’, ‘The Bedroom Door’ and ‘Doin’ Alright’ are a few stand-outs, and the fact that ‘Lullaby Moon’ sounds like a David Gates out-take shouldn’t alarm anyone.
