Moon Duo Step Out from the Dark with Occult Architecture Vol. 2

For as long as I’ve followed the band, Moon Duo has always created music that is dark, mystical and filled with substantial space rock drone. So it was with intrigue that I approached their new 2017 project, two LPs dubbed Occult Architecture Vol. 1 and Occult Architecture Vol. 2.

“Not Me Sir” by Wolf People: Watch the Psychedelic Video, Hear the Psychedelic Song

It’s been a few years since I fell down the rabbit hole and into an obsession with the original era of psychedelic rock.

A Retrospective Look at Animal of One by The Fresh & Onlys

I’ve been crushing on The Fresh & Onlys since their widely heralded 2009 LP Grey-Eyed Girls. (Hard to believe that it’s almost been a decade since that release.) A year later, Play it Strange would become one of my favorite sleeper albums of the year.
