Sugar frosted, blissed out, psychedelic dance vibe reminiscent of the 90’s post-rave chill out scene, Sanae Yamada and Ripley Johnson (Wooden Shjips) claim disco as a fundamental influence on this their seventh album as Moon Duo.

It’s much more chilled than foot-to-the-floor, and still manages to reflect Sonic Boom’s production chops, particularly on the track Eye To Eye. It’s not a radical departure for Moon Duo into sequinned disco flares from their usual fuzzed guitar space grooves, but it is moving rhythmically toward a bright, softer-edged bouncy future. Indeed their philosophy remains of transcendental connection of the human spirit to an ever-expanding universe through free self-expression, diversity, fluid identity and generally getting down with it.
