Every Record I Own - Day 218: Kikagaku Moyo House In The Tall Grass
Kikagaku Moyo is a Japanese psych rock group. The vibe is way more of a pastoral zone-out than a freaky, ear-shredding fuzz fest, though they certainly have their big distorted climaxes. At times it almost sounds like something that could have come out of the Chicago / Thrill Jockey camp back in the mid-’90s. We listened to this album a lot on the Russian Circles Candadian tour earlier this year.
Kikagaku Moyo was the first show I went to after moving back to Seattle in February. Unfortunately, I went to a friend’s party beforehand and got so stoned that I don’t actually remember anything about the show, but I woke up the next morning with this LP, so they must have been good.
