Following their split 7” with Moon Duo late last year, Tokyo’s Kikagaku Moyo have announced details of their forthcoming new album ‘House In The Tall Grass’ for release on May 13th via Guruguru Brain.
The album’s atmospheric & elemental first single ‘Kogarashi’ (the Autumn wind) a song that floats around one’s head with no solid placement, a free flowing track with excellent use of a variety of string instruments creating a psychedelic dream machine.
Tomo Katsurada explains the song: “I came up with the melody and rhythm of Kogarashi, when I was about to fall asleep at the park. It was a nice warm day in the Autumn to get stoned and pass out in the park. I remember I was surrounded by the multi-coloured dead leaves and felt warm when I woke up. But all of the sudden, Kogarashi (the Autumn wind) blew all of the leaves away. It was a beautiful and psychedelic Autumn moment.”
