Kikagaku Moyo – “Kogarashi”

These guys caught my attention last year with a batch of reissues through Captcha and after a split single with Moon Duo they’re ramping up for a new Spring record, House In The Tall Grass for Tokyo psych label Guruguru Brain. The track, which translated means The Autumn Wind, is aptly named, with a kind of pastoral psych that recalls touches of The Zombies, The Apryl Fool and Pretty Things circa SF Sorrow. Shrouded in a veil of canyon echo the track burns with the last dying embers of firelight before sleep. The band have always had a knack for balancing a bit of fuzz burn with the lusher side of ’60s psychedelics adding up to songs that might not shred the skin but make for a slow burn in the long run, lending themselves to hidden gems with each new listen. It remains to be seen if the rest of House In The Tall Grass goes in for the fire or keeps it all as breezy as this but if they are keeping things mellow, this hints at a pretty phenomenal start.
