Moon Duo - Mazes

The formation of Ripley Johnson of Wooden Shjips and Sanae Yamada, San Francisco psych rock prodigies Moon Duo release their new album titled Mazes, which will be available from March 29 onwards, through Sacred Bones Records.

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.
