Kikagaku Moyo – House in the Tall GrassPosted: November 3, 2016
[ Guruguru Brain, 2016 ]
Japanese psych rockers Kikagaku Moyo (“Geometric Patterns”) return with a new LP House in the Tall Grass, proving that Japanese psychedelia is alive and very well, and showing another why example it is considered a trip-rock superpower. And I’d be surprised if there turned out to be a finer psychedelic rock album in the whole year 2016. Because the new album is amazing – maybe not groundbreaking or anything, but a collection of straight-up folk soothers, smoothly echoing and lulling with bucolic melodies and fuzzy killers with completely hypnotic krautrocky rhythms and insane guitar soloing with some amazing, brain-melting distortion slapped on. Kikagaku Moyo make me see geometric patterns all over the place – and I want MORE! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
