NEWS: Moon Duo tour Australia…

Those of you who have salivated over Wooden Shjips for the last few years are probably already aware of Moon Duo, the side project of WS guitarist Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada. Formed in 2009, Moon Duo’s first two critically acclaimed EPs, Killing Time (2009) and Escape (2010), fused the futuristic pylon hum and transistor reverb of Suicide or Silver Apples with the heat-haze fuzz of American rock ‘n’ roll to create tracks of blistering, 12-cylinder space rock. Now their debut album Mazes, recorded in San Francisco and mixed in Berlin during 2010 as the band prepared to move to the mountains of Colorado, explores a far broader, lighter, sound.

Krauty, psych, motorik, drone pop that locks you in. The good news for Australia is that they are touring here next month. I highly recommend you get along and see them. See the above poster for details…
