AllMusic Review by

Perhaps inspired by the Jack Kerouac novel, On the Road, they took their name from, French-American five-piece Moriarty tested the 13 songs on their second studio album, The Missing Room, while touring the world before committing them to record, resulting in a much more expansive and electric-based sound than their acoustic-heavy debut, Gee Whiz But This Is a Lonesome Town. Produced by drummer Vincent Talpaert, the first release through their own Air Rytmo label continues to mirror their bohemian and nomadic lifestyle, blending Americana with Irish country-blues and French folk-pop, and includes the lead single, "Isabella."
