Boomkat Product Review
Last seen on Sacred Bones with their Killing Time EP, Wooden Shjips side project Moon Duo returns with four lengthy motorik jams in the spirit of a psych-rockin' Suicide. Considering (as hinted at in their name) Moon Duo is but a two-piece they manage to create an impressively sturdy wall-of-sound. 'Motorcycle, I Love You' is like their very own 'Ghost Rider', but taking on more of a '60s backroom psychedelia sound as its starting point. The Duo stay locked in a deep goth-abilly groove throughout and its not long before the guitar spirals off into plumes of heavily distorted, modulated soloing. Next comes 'In The Trees' which has more of a space-rock feel, slowing the tempo to a druggy clatter while half-absent vocals fade into the background and hypnotic guitar leads carve out modal shapes through the latter stages. The third track, 'Stumbling 22nd St.' is like a gothic take on The Stooges 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' - this is how you might have hoped the first album by The Horrors had sounded - before the finale, 'Escape', goes all out for scrappy krautrock shapes, caking timeless drum machine motifs in delayed guitar scree and Alan Vega styled creepy, boogie woogie songwriting.
