Moon Duo was formed in 2009 by Erik Johnson (Guitarist in Wooden Shjips) and keybaordist Sanae Yamada. They've had two records out already, last years debut 12″ single, Love On The Sea and the Killing Time EP, out on Sick Thirst and Sacred Bones. This year sees the release of their four song mini album, Escape out now on Woodsist Records.
If you know Wooden Shjips then you will know a little of what to expect but if not then imagine long looping guitars, drums and synths, echoeing keys that sound like vocals and trance drones rumbling on into a sonic netherworld. A marriage of Silver Apples and Suicide in a cave beneath the gathering dusk.
