Moon Duo - Escape


"San Francisco's Moon Duo was formed in 2009 by Sanae Yamada and Erik Johnson (Wooden Shjips). Inspired initially by the legendary John Coltrane and Rashied Ali, Moon Duo counts such variant groups as Silver Apples, Royal Trux, Moolah, Suicide, and Cluster as touchstones." This is some dense and hypnotizing drone/psych/space rock and roll. It's easy to get lost in the gyrating guitar and singular rhythms, but it's a very satisfying listen and one of the better releases I've heard so far this year.
