In A Cloud

The recent Moon Duo album- Shadow of the Sun- is getting to be a favourite of mine for this year. On vinyl it's an eight track album with an additional two songs on a 7" single. Husband and wife duo Sanae Yamada and Ripley Johnson have added a real life, human drummer this time around and the usual two chord, drone rock is all present and correct. The real beauty though is the song In A Cloud. It's a slowed down, gorgeous ballad- spacey guitar chords, hazy and loved up vocals, and a guitar solo that drips like honey. It's almost Balearic in its summery loveliness.

I know that Moon Duo has wormed their way into my hear because I've been hesitant to get the new album (something I haven't really done in a long time anyway). I don't want to be disappointed...which means I'm feeling some investment in them.

Of course nothing y'all have posted on your various blogs suggest there's any danger of that.
