Marvellous sounds as always with the Moon Duo. First listen now, halfway through the hypnotic 4/4 thump thump of Ice and can't stop my head nodding away. Would sound brilliant in a club. I've a signed copy of the album coming my way next week. Roll on the tour too, can't wait to get my boogie on.

listened to this last night.. it's good and all that but Moon Duo are the Status Quo of the psych world aren't they? just remaking the same album over and over.

also the album cover for this one looks like an A level Psychology textbook from the 80s :)

Not a fan then??

Gonna wait till next week for my album to come, pretty sure I`ll love it though, its an accusation plenty bands down the years have had thrown at them,

Great review here on Quietus http://thequietus.com/articles/17302-mo ... sun-review which highlights the delights behind that 'sameness' sound of theirs.

yeah not the biggest fan- they're alright. I would definitely catch them again live if I can, but not really interested in buying any more of their records.

Thought some might like this, NYTaper has full show recorded from earlier in the month, not heard it myself, downloading it at the minute, but their recordings are usually pretty good,

The album doesn't appear to be going down well with the forumites it seems, I however think its great, more of the same obviously, but not a duff track on there for me.

I must admit I'm liking it a lot, especially the "In A Cloud" track. That could go on for another 6 minutes and it'd still be too short for me! :D

After the glory of the Mary Chain album I really wasn't expecting to hear another record demanding repeat listens from me. Certainly not so soon after anyway, yet Occult Architecture Vol.2 has me doing just that.

The two instrumentals are blowing me away and I really hope they explore this sound further rather than revert back to type.
I'm losing my edge, but I was there...

You have me worried now Joycey. I don't like the new JAMC LP much at all.

I'll put that down to the dodgy hearing of an old man and/or a crap stereo :wink:

Fear not though, the Moon Duo album retains their sound but is a trippier, more blissful affair.

That could well be it. It couldn't be that the JAMC LP is a tad shite, could it? It just seems to plod along. I might appreciate it more in a live setting, but it just doesn't do it for me or my cloth ears
