Mike and the Moonpies with These Wild Plains
When frontman Mike Harmeier sang they dont make em like they used to at the start of Mike and the Moonpies last studio album (2015s Mockingbird), it wasnt the idle complaint of an armchair country music critic: It was a self-imposed challenge, answered by Harmeier and the rest of his band of young but stage-hardened, old-soul honky-tonkers, to do something about it.

The idea was, if I walked into a bar with my dad or grandfather, I wanted the album to sound like the stuff that I would play on a jukebox at that bar, says the 33-year-old songwriter, who started Mike and the Moonpies not long after moving to Austin from his native Houston a decade ago. Thats why it had a bunch of different styles on it: theres a Bob Seger kind of thing on there, some Randy Travis sounding stuff, a George Jones kind of thing  That was all a grand scheme that I had in my head.

The reaction was pretty grand, too, with Rolling Stone Country picking Mockingbird as one of the genres best albums of the year.

The  bands  freshly  minted  Steak  Night  at  the  Prairie  Rose  (February  2018)  was recorded  in  April  at Yellow  Dog  Studios  in  Wimberley,  Texas,  the  Moonpies  fifth  album  is  not  only  their  best  effort  to date,  but  arguably  the  first  to  really  nail  the  irresistible,  good-time  spark  and  spirit  of  one  of Austins  best  bar  bands  (in any genre)  in  the  studio.

It was only a year after the band played their first live show to a sold out Great Scott in Allston, MA, that Esquire Magazine featured THESE WILD PLAINS in their 15 Bands to Watch in 2014 feature. Theyve been busy since on the live front as go-to support in Boston for national touring bands like Deer Tick, Futurebirds and The Sadies. The boys capped off 2015 with a Boston Music Award nomination, opening for Evan Dando at his induction into the BMA Hall of Fame. Theyve earned some fantastic looks from festivals and showcases around the country.
