"Skin Collision Past, the debut full-length album by Houston quintet Wild Moccasins, fulfills the promise of the band's earlier EP, Microscopic Metronomes, filling out the arrangements with a more sophisticated production, but keeping the music's essential appeal." (

"There's something irresistible about jangle-pop done right and Wild Moccasins certainly fall into that category. Vocalist Zahira Guiterrez is on the cusp of becoming a household name and the nine songs on Skin Collision Past prove that. Trading vocals with principal songwriter Cody Swann, the group marries spiky guitar work with caffeinated hook-heavy indie-pop. Commenting on social status, love and rhetoric, the gnomic affair is creative, impressionable and precise. There's not a single hole or hiccup anywhere. This is air-tight, mistake-free thinking man's pop. Opener "Zylophone," is rousing and hypnotic, aided by Gutierrez's sultry vocals...If all was right with this world, this disc of shiny, cheery, sugary goodness would find favor with many a fan and the band would find success in nanoseconds. This being 2010, that fate is undoubtedly in question, but make no mistake here, this is an unstoppable 29 minutes of pop perfection. One can't help but think, they won't be Houston's secret for long." (Read More:
