“Formed in San Francisco in 2009 by Wooden Shijps guitarist Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada, Moon Duo’s first two critically acclaimed EPs, Killing Time (2009) and Escape (2010), fused the futuristic pylon hum and transistor reverb of Suicide or Silver Apples with the heat-haze fuzz of American rock ‘n’ roll to create tracks of blistering, 12-cylinder space rock.”

The albums and bands that come through my life are incalculable. There are so damn many. Sometimes, for whatever reason, something sticks. Like this release, “Circles” by the band Moon Duo.. Psychedelic, shoegaze, electronica, call it what you will (Space Rock…really?), It’s been in my conscience since I was lucky enough to hear it. So cool. My thanks to keyboardist Sanae Yamada for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Sanae. I just love your record. It creeps, man. Come over to Pittsburgh.
