Record Label: Sacred Bones Records
Newly expanded and pressed on Red Vinyl exclusively for the 10th Anniversary of Sacred Bones Records. Includes three bonus tracks from the band's earliest recordings, "Bopper's Hat," "Run Around," and "Dead West Pt. II." Limited edition of 1000.
Moon Duo is the solo alter-ego of Wooden Shjips guitarist and singer Ripley Johnson. Under the Moon Duo moniker Johnson creates expansive Krautrock influenced tapestries of warm cascading fuzz and controlled feedback, organ, and accenting keyboard. This four song 12-inch is the second release and incorporates a much more concise, composed and driving sound than before. Johnson expands on ideas only hinted at on the Sick Thirst 12-inch (which is already long gone) adding a driving drum machine beat behind the thick walls of layered sound. Don’t sleep on this one.
