White Rose

I am in a bit of a Moon Duo/Wooden Shjips groove right now and have been returning to the pair of albums Moon Duo released last year, Occult Architecture 1 and 2. The first volume was closed by a final track that was a scorching, repeating and hypnotic delight, White Rose. While digging on the internet last week I found some live versions that are superb. This one was filmed for a session with KEXP and is a masterclass. Once that drumbeat sets off and the drone gets going it could quite happily go on and on and on...

And then I found this one from a festival called Endless Daze held in South Africa last year, which is like the other one but even more so, especially Ripley's reverb drenched guitar playing.

Great stuff. The drummer certainly earns his wage packet.

He's right on it as well isn't he? Never drops the beat.
