Moon Duo – “Stars Are The Light”

Back in 2017, Portland space-rockers Moon Duo released two albums, Occult Architecture Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. Moon Duo half Sanae Yamada has since shared a self-titled solo album under the name Vive La Void. Ripley Johnson released a Wooden Shjips album last year, which we then named Album Of The Week.

Today, they return as a unit to announce their forthcoming seventh album, Stars Are The Light, and share its title track. The album was mixed by Sonic Boom, who worked with psych rock forebearers Spacemen 3 and Spectrum. On “Stars Are The Light,” Johnson and Yamada sing with soft breath around twinkling synth bloops and a languid guitar. Listen to it below.
