"Psych - Kraut - Space Jamboree"MOON DUO
"Moon Duo consists of Ripley Johnson of Wooden Shjips and his better half, Sanae Yamada. Together they create timeless melodic pop templates that find their way in repetitive hooky keyboard patterns, monstrous, zoned-out guitars and motoric beats. A sense of punk comes into play as twangy surf guitars act out against drone and krautrock tendencies. Moon Duo succeeds in creating an intense and exciting labyrinth of noise and psychedelic sounds where pop melodies create air and space."
Zechs Marquise create their own musical universe of psychedelic funk, jazz fusion, progressive guitar work, electronics and intricate instrumentation. The flow never ceases, abrasive, harsh drums never leave you alone and accompany powerful frantic guitar riffs that have the Rodriguez-Lopes-dna all over them. Yes! Three members of the band are brothers from that crazy Mars Volta guitarist! While sounding very up-to-date, Zechs Marquise also hints to old disco and latino aspects. It's a macho, hot and blistering effort that will get your heart beating with a rhythm that screams groove.
Impenetrable thick space rock with drones that can be so one-dimensional, you start to believe you've discovered a parallel universe, but thank god, you're only in outer space when listening to Carlton Melton.
Mugstar is an out-of-the ordinary psychedelic rock band as they assemble their sound from Kraut rock, space rock and noise and craft something exquisite with it. Listen to those synths, those droning guitars, that hammering rhythm section, ethereal sounds and loops… Mugstar's sound is a work of art.
