About Moon Duo

A project of Wooden Shjips' Erik "Ripley" Johnson and Sanae Yamada, San Francisco's Moon Duo are a psychedelic Krautrock pair with chilly electronic underpinnings and drones inspired by Spacemen 3, Silver Apples, and Suicide. The group formed in 2009 and began issuing releases in short order, including 2010's full-length Escape. Their second album, 2011's Mazes, followed widely acclaimed performances at SXSW. The band's next full-length, Circles, appeared in the fall of 2012. After moving their home base to Portland the group began recording its next album in a self-described dark basement. 2015's Shadow of the Sun was the band's densest, most psychedelic record to date. ~ Heather Phares
