There’s a new EP on the way from Tokyo’s psychedelic five-piece Kikagaku Moyo, following last year’s album House In The Tall Grass. Entitled Stone Garden, the upcoming EP drops on April 21st through their own Guruguru Brain. Improvisation continues to be a key element of the band’s sound, who on Stone Garden adopt a more experimental approach than in their previously song-based effort, describes a press release. “This record enabled the band to experiment not only with instrumentation but also atonality and a playful approach to mixing.”
Kikagaku Moyo are teasing the EP with the first single from it, ‘In A Coil’, an hypnotic and exhilarating track embracing a myriad of influences from classical Indian music and Krautrock to traditional folk and 70s Rock. Take a listen now.
To celebrate the release of Stone Garden, Kikagaku Moyo are embarking on a North American tour in May, before returning to Europe this summer for several live dates, including a show in London at Moth Club on June 20th. Head over here to check out all their stops and other info.
