Music Review: “Wilding” by Moon Duo


TRACK 1

“Wilding”

From Moon Duo’s Shadow of the Sun

SACRED BONES

Liner notes: Psychedelia and analog electronics collide with a thrilling bang, as fidgety beats and shadowy voices shape the contours of an enthralling bad dream.

Behind the music: Guitarist Ripley Johnson formed Moon Duo as a side project to his band Wooden Shjips, teaming with keyboardist Sanae Yamada, a former schoolteacher.
