The Wooden Shjips spin-off sails to European shores with a cargo of excellent free music.
Moon Duo, the pairing of former Shjips man Ripley Johnson and his partner Sanae Yamada, have announced a string of UK dates to follow their jaunt around their continent this summer, and to celebrate they’re dishing out a free download of a mind-warping 20-minute freakout titled ‘High Over Blue’, previously only available as an iTunes bonus track.
The band will be in the UK next week for a show at The Dome in north London (17 July) followed by a performance at Latitude Festival (21 July), after which they’ll take a clutch of European festivals before returning to the UK for the Green Man and Beacons festivals and three extra shows.
They’ve also been confirmed for the Liverpool Festival of Psychedelia alongside another music-making couple, Peaking Lights.
