Garage psychadelic

Man, I gotta tell y’all, it’s difficult to review something that you just didn’t enjoy as much as you thought you were going to. I’ve honestly never written a negative review before, which is a small miracle for someone that’s been reviewing music for AT LEAST the last six months or so (a long and prosperous career, to be sure).

In their 3rd full-length LP, Moon Duo's Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada have evolved their sound with the addition of a live drummer, John Jeffrey. With hypnotic rhythms, droning guitar riffs, repetitive keyboard melodies, and echoey psychadelic vocals, this album can put you in a total zen trance in one song, and then force you to do a little dance (while still in a trance state) to the next track. The sound is surprisingly forceful given the rather mellow vibe and mild tempos. The whole album is steady and hypnotic. It's exciting, but mellow. It moves you, but gently.

These beachy garage psychadelic dudes hail from one of my favorite cities on planet Earth, Chicago. Their self-titled and self-proclaimed "dirty doo-wop" album is a combination of things that are sure to tickle your fancy. It's a bit moody like The Smiths, and moving like The Doors.  Moving, as in literally moving: You're gonna want to dance.
