Shadow Of The Sun

The highest apex of psychedelia be it art music drugs or literature is to induce a prolonged consciousness shift that affects the consumer far beyond the time they were privy to the act Moon Duo's third fulllength LP 'Shadow of the Sun' was written entirely during one of these evolving phases a rare and uneasy rest period devoid of the constant adrenaline of performing live and the stimulation of traveling through endless moving landscapes This offered Moon Duo a new space to reflect on all of these previous experiences and cradle them while cultivating the album in the unfamiliar environment of a new dwelling a dark Portland basement It was from this stircrazy fire that Shadow of the Sun was forged Evolving the sound of their first two fulllength records 'Mazes' 2011 and 'Circles' 2012 Moon Duo Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada have developed their ideas with the help of their newly acquired steam engine Canadian drummer John Jeffrey present on the band's last release Live in Ravenna The unchartered rhythms and tones present on this record are reflective of Moon Duo's strive for equilibrium in this aforementioned new environment You can hear it is the result of months of wrangling with a profound feeling of being unsettled there are offkilter dance rhythms repetitive grinding riffs cosmic trucker boogies and even an ecstatically pretty moment Mixing with Jonas Verwijnen in Berlin allowed for a creative catharsis and dissolved the album's formal technique into a cool and paradoxically sane sound of confusionA  This song will appear as the Aside of a 7inch packaged with each copy of the vinyl edition and exist as the final track of the album on the CD version The song has an early West Coast punk viciousness to it that is entirely unique to the Moon Duo catalog LP Red Vinyl with 7 Inch LP Black Vinyl with 7 Inch
