Making comparisons between Moon Duo and Wooden Shjips is practically inevitable considering the former is a side project of the latter. The distinction between the two was a very fine one with 2010's Escape - with Mazes the dividing line has become more defined. The gyrating riffing aesthetic is present on both, but the Duo seem to lift the not unpleasant fug of the Shjips and present something much lighter, more airy and generally less bong fuelled.

Allowing Moon Duo to embrace a pop sensibility, Sanae Yamada's keyboards are central to this distinction. Of course this is a swirling fractalised tie-dyed psychedelic garage awareness of pop's power, not the auto-tuned apocalypse of current chart pop, but the hook is as ingenious as anything on major play-lists. `Mazes', for example, is a sunshine bounce of a tune that has you humming within seconds and `When You Cut' catches you with its uncomplicated keyboard line before the fuzzed guitar begins to rise.

Mazes is a another brew of hallucinogenic goodness from Moon Duo.

Apologies for the rush of jumbled, initial reactions. This is amazing, I thought, jogging as it did the fondest of musical memories with its hints of Hendrix, Hawkwind, Gnod, White Hills and all the great space-rockers. The mood can be darkly atmospheric yet totally infectious, ethereal, metallic and fuzzy with some remarkable guitar work. It could almost be the top-rated selection from a list of the 'best ever', 'krautrock' releases (a truly miraculous, multi-faceted goldmine of a genre, but one tagged with a rather unhelpful label!). Hang on...in addition to Titan, Ash Ra and Amon Düül II, I'm also picking up a flavour of Tom Verlaine's vocal phrasing and the ensemble work on the 'Television' album...and all the while, all around these impressions, that pummeling beat like a metronomic steam-hammer and those joyful keyboard burbles, hisses, growls and hoots.
This pounced and overpowered on first hearing but I still think it will prove itself to be a 'grower' and unveil a further multitude of deranged charms over the next few sittings. Definitely a band whose cause I'd gladly champion and into whose output I intend to delve further. I guess I rather like it

Bought this on a recommendation as I've recently got into more psych rock based music such as Black Angels, Wooden Shjips, BRMC, Warlocks, Tame Impala and others. Just listened to the album with a couple of pints of Everards Old Original (brewed in Leicestershire) and can say what a thoroughly enjoyable 40 odd minutes this is. If you like the bands I've mentioned this is definitely one for you. Most of the tracks chug along with that hazy, druggy beat that also catches you nodding with approval with plenty of hooks to grab your attention.

I first heard this playing before a Dean Wareham gig at XOYO in April. The repetitive rhythm and blissful effects laden guitar noodling refresh where other bands fail to reach. I can't stop playing it. Tracks Mazes, When You Cut and In The Sun are favourites. For me, it's the surefire album of the summer!

An excellent slice of slightly scuzzy, lysergically inclined synth pulses and guitar riffage. Hugely enjoyable and a good one to crank up!

To the guy that "read the review in the Sunday Times". The garage aesthetic is king, and this album has it in spades...

Very very good indeed! Hypnotic and pounding and nice'n'scuzzy sounding. Will be getting their other releases ASAP!
