Label: Sacred Bones
Sanae Yamada and Ripley Johnson make up the spacey krautrock psychnicians known as Moon Duo. Â The two have been cranking out choogling aural medications and head-expanding meditations long before the recent neo-psych movement began, and the Portland 2-piece is now readying the first wave of tracks in a 2-part collection. Â Keyboardist Sanae Yamada adds, âtheÂ two parts are intended to represent inverted components of a singular entity, like two faces on the same head which stare always in opposite directions but are inextricably driven by the same brain.â
Occult Architecture Vol. 1 marks the fourth studio release for Sacred Bones Records, and they’re giving this firstÂ collection the gourmet treatment, housing the red and marble wax in a deluxe box that will also have room for volume 2 whenever that’s unearthed. Â Check out two of the tracks from volume one below and snatch a preorder before they fly away.
Out February 3, 2017.
***Limited Edition Version: Edition of 400 copies, on black and red marble vinyl, housed in a deluxe outer box with space for Vol. 2, with poster, and available by mail-order only. ONE PER PERSON LIMIT.***
