The hypnotic-psych duo of Ripley Johnson (Wooden Shjips) and Sanae Yamada, Moon Duo, return to the UK next week for a London show and performance at Latitude’s i-Arena stage on Sunday. They also return for a string of dates around appearances at Green Man and Beacons Festivals next month.
To celebrate the news, they’re giving away a free download of High Over Blue, a 20-minute opus which was previously only available as an iTunes bonus track. You can download the track here.
Last year Moon Duo released their follow-up to the critically acclaimed Mazes with the equally stellar (but differently shaped), Circles – inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s 1841 essay of the same name, on the symbol and nature of “the flying perfect.”
For record store day 2013 they released a 12” of remixes by Tom Furse (The Horrors), Life Coach (Phil Manly of Trans Am), Eric Copeland (Black Dice) and more.
