After twenty years together and nine studio albums, one might think moe. had pretty much done it all. Yet the famously independent-minded jam band is reaching for new ground on its latest project, What Happened To The LA LAs. What Happened To The LA LAs features 10 tracks of compact melodies, each textured by moe.’s signature rock riffs and flourishes, and backed by a roller coaster ride of pulsing drums. It’s that pure moe. sound which the band’s ardent fans — affectionately dubbed moe.rons — have come to love over the band’s decades of industrious touring. As part of a special edition of the album, the band recorded a full acoustic version of the record, which is available as a second bonus disc in the “Deluxe Edition” of What Happened To The LA LAs.
