"...Moving Panoramas have had one hell of year, and it’s only March. The band’s debut LP, the rightly named One, dropped in October..."
"...Today, central air and heat regulates temperatures inside, and an alarm system sign sticks up from the ground outside the front door. Sitting where her mother died of a drug overdose that same year, in a living room bright with animal decor and mouthwatering thrift store finds you might find hanging on the wall in a Mad Men episode, the Moving Panoramas frontwoman describes the PTSD she suffered after the incident and still today..."
"...Since I don't have one, most of my income comes from odd jobs, freelancing, self-employment, and savings now down to zero. What little money my band the Moving Panoramas makes goes back into recording, merch, tours, etc...."
"...Barracuda's mood took a sharp turn with Telepods' dark, quietly dynamic songs, unassuming in performance but anomalous in structure, lyrics laden by misanthropy. Their mellow garage sound proved a fitting transition to Moving Panoramas' melancholy uplift..."
"...1) Moving Panoramas, One (Modern Outsider)..."
"...Leslie Sisson’s Moving Panoramas opened the SXSW HAAM Day showcase at the Palm Door on Sixth beginning at 7pm...."
"...Thirteen acts pull from Austin’s crowded music scene, most famously southern rockers Band of Heathens and platinum rock/pop hit-makers Fastball. Other local acts on the docket: David Ramirez, Blind Pets, Whitney Rose, Moving Panoramas, Blue Healer, Lincoln Durham, Emily Wolfe, William Harries Graham, Missio, Tamarron, and mouthful act Letting Up Despite Great Faults...."
"...Locally, representation begins with newly minted Merge signees A Giant Dog, Band of Heathens, Matt Gilmour’s Patient Wolf, recent Chronicle cover stars Moving Panoramas, bluesman Paul Oscher, Skyline, Nightowls, and Jon Dee Graham, with Graham’s son William Harries Graham & Painted Redstarts filling out the frame...."
"...Moving Panoramas, Palm Door on Sixth (7pm)..."
"...Leslie Sisson’s quartet Moving Panoramas, meanwhile, threw heavier power behind a slew of new songs, from familiar shoegaze riffs with “Home Alone” to the more upbeat “Whiskey Is the Reason” and percussive groove of “Dance Floor.” The evening closed with a shift from psych waves to unabashed blowout, ninepiece outfit Hard Proof barely contained onstage as they blared a horn-fronted funk fusion onto the transformed dance floor...."
"...Hard Proof unloaded its new Afrobeat funk LP in January, Stinger showcasing the 10-piece outfit's suave rhythms and explosive, horn-blasted grooves lined by an incomparable percussive backbeat. 2015 debut One established Leslie Sisson's Moving Panoramas as a leading light of the local scene with dreamy melodies that packed emotional punch, the quartet balancing barrages of guitar with mellow, shoegazed reverb..."
"...Moving Panoramas photo by Shelley Hiam Sept. 25, 2015..."
"...Star Parks, led by ATX6 alum and guitar diplomat Andy Bianculli; Grace Park, clarion crooner of indie folk outfit the Deer; and Dave Pinkham’s lovelorn Dylan-Reed-Walkmen-inspired rockers Summer Swells fill out their ranks with horn sections, backup vocalists, and guest spots aplenty. Also levitating will be former Chronicle cover story dreamgazers Moving Panoramas, fronted by the impressive Leslie Sisson, and Some Say Leland, who offer alluring, melancholic country..."
"...Moving Panoramas at Barracuda..."
"...Bob Schneider serving up both Doyle Bramhall II ("Black Betty") and Danny Malone (Tom Petty's "Breakdown") some drank to slow both songs to a codeine crawl will puddle you where you stand. Granted, not segueing the latter into the Moving Panoramas' girlish "American Girl" misses ample opportunity, and Sweet Spirit pulling back on the Faces' "Stay With Me" should've worked in ye olde counter-programming department, but the missteps are forgivable (South Austin Moonlighters' faithful "Witchy Woman") and the rewards ripe: Black Pistol Fire pistol-whipping early Fleetwood Mac standard "Oh Well" ahead of Guy Forsyth busking "You Keep Me Hanging On." Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM) – benefactor of All ATX just as SIMS and Seton net proceeds from KGSR's annual Broadcasts series – got dealt a full house...."
