Moon Duo "Occult Architecture Vol. 1"
Occult Architecture Vol. 1 (Sacred Bones), the new album from Moon Duo finds the, uh… duo, indulging their darker side. But I guess when the word “occult” appears in your record title, things are likely to get pretty dark (or pretty ironic if all the songs are happy funtime). Swirling psychedelia mixes with a minor key version of the Dandy Warhols (with all the pop bliss nods intact). Throw in some heady, spaced-out Thurston Moore-esque guitar experimenting, some two part harmony vocals, a little sinister synth work; and if you can figure out a way to stop yourself from nodding along then you are stronger than I am-but i could probably beat you at Connect Four. I should have gone pro… Enough about my lost dreams, fuel tomorrow’s dreams with the drum machine doom of “Cold Fear.”
