rough trade exclusive with a 7 track bonus cd featuring a eagles boston cover and remixes from sonic boom, psychic ills, cave, purling hiss and gary war. formed in san francisco in 2009 by wooden shijps guitarist ripley johnson and his partner, sanae yamada, moon duo's first two critically acclaimed eps, 'killing time' (2009) and 'escape' (2010), fused the futuristic pylon hum and transistor reverb of suicide or silver apples with the heat-haze fuzz of american rock 'n' roll to create tracks of blistering, 12-cylinder space rock. now their debut album 'mazes', recorded in san francisco and mixed in berlin during 2010 as the band prepared to move to the mountains of colorado, explores a far broader, lighter, sound. that's most clear on the dreamy organ and skipping riff of the title track, which recalls the velvet underground, or the handclaps and swinging organ bloops over the potent shredding and guttural riff delivered by johnson in 'when you cut'. throughout, 'mazes' is the sound of moon duo carving out their own identity, looking to the horizon, and moving forward.
