RIYL: Black Mountain, Wooden Shjips, White Hills

Label: Sacred Bones

Sanae Yamada and Ripley Johnson make up the spacey krautrock psychnicians known as Moon Duo.  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.  Keyboardist Sanae Yamada adds, “the 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.”

Occult Architecture Vol. 1 marks the fourth studio release for Sacred Bones Records, and they’re giving this first 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.  Check out two of the tracks from volume one below and snatch a preorder before they fly away.
