Work: Moon Duo

Formed in San Francisco in 2009 by Wooden Shijps guitarist Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada, Moon Duo fuse "the futuristic pylon hum and transistor reverb of Suicide or Silver Apples with the heat-haze fuzz of American rock ‘n’ roll to create tracks of blistering, 12-cylinder space rock". Quite something. 

In the latest in our 'Work' series, the band talk about how life on the road can be disorientating and scary, but beats working in IT. 

Their new album, Shadow of the Sun, is out March 3rd on Sacred Bones Records
