Curated by Moon Duo
Psychedelic/krautrock mystics Moon Duo are comprised of Ripley Johnson (Wooden Shjips) and Sanae Yamada (Viva La Void), with John Jeffery manning the skins. The Oregon band’s trademark sound is as much acquainted with minimalist pop as the louder, more cosmic torrents.
On stage, this band manifests like a living painting, punishing and hypnotic at the same time. Because of their all-embracing nature – 80’s disco, occult literature, electronic music and film soundtracks – a Moon Duo record never orbits the same area twice. Those who have witnessed Moon Duo’s performances can confirm how quickly they’ve evolved and thrived: they have risen up, understatedly, as one of the most intoxicating live acts of this decade.
