Kikagaku Moyo – “Ouchi Time”
Another sublime cut from this new Looking Glass series though MexSum and its from longtime faves Kikagaku Moyo. The band’s been working outside the album boundaries all year with a solid entry to the Sub Pop Singles Club and now this gem that’s playing to their psych-folk strengths, but bringing in the bob of rhythm that keeps this track bubbling right on into German Progressive waters. As the build crests, the band lets a the chug of drums get doused in stringwork, echo, and a disorienting cascade of ecstasy. Hoping that this track hints at the direction they might be headed, but the tracks included in this series seem to be particularly singular offerings, letting band’s play around with sounds, while all adhering to a sort of humid, earthen psychedelia and folk focus. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
