We are thrilled to present the newest long-player from psych prodigies Moon Duo. For just over two years now Ripley Johnson (Wooden Shjips) and Sanae Yamada have been burning up the scene with their propulsive beats and compelling acid washed shows. Formed in San Francisco, the duo recently relocated to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. This record, however, was cut in Berlin. Certainly the most pop-oriented batch of songs the band has ever delivered, Mazes reveals a more accessible vocal delivery and song structure that is sure to appeal to a wide audience not necessarily well-versed in the psych underground. The concepts of minimalism, expansion through repetition and sensory distortion are all still here and the dynamic interplay between Ripley’s guitar and Sanae’s keyboard continue to push this band and genre into uncharted territory. A benchmark follow-up to their critically acclaimed previous LP, Escape and prior release for Sacred Bones, Killing Time. The Duo will be slow riot mosh touring the US beginning mid-March.
The band's finest album to date. A def must for any fan of Psych rock with a little country, blues and gospel thrown in the mix. Hope Sandoval does guest vocals in the song "I don't mind". The album closer "fade me out" is very eerie.
RIP Tres. Another great talent taken from us too soon this year. lspaceman3
This one is right up my alley. Excellent album. In addition to "Golden Flower" I can highly recommend "Eclipse". Enjoy "In The Fall" and "Staring At The Sun" to chill and drift away... Papa Jay (Radio Smorgasbord)
a couple of daze into the social isolation, I found this tune, and I recognised it from the time when I walked into a disco, and it was so good, so well here we are..
