Moon Duo Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records

Vive la Void
Vive la Void

Moon Duo keyboard player Sanae Yamada takes time out from the day job to lay down this solo LP under the name Vive la Void. The seven tracks of this eponymous album don’t stray too far from the MD blueprint while also incorporating more of a synthwave/darkwave influence. Lead single ‘Red Rider’...view item »

Moon Duo
Jukebox Babe / No Fun

This twelve-inch sees the Portland psychedelicists tackling a pair of proto-punk classics. Alan Vega’s Jukebox Babe stands as a tribute to the late Suicide singer. While this version retains the rockabilly skeleton of the track, it’s as if the song has been transplanted from Vega’s gritty New Y...view item »

Catch As Catch Can / Set It On Fire

I'm partial to Moon Duo... If you don't already know then this is Ripley Jonson from Wooden Shjips on guitar/vocals and Sanae Yamada on keyboards. I dig their authentic old analogue sound.

These motorik malcontents have been towing the party line of Sacred Bones for a while now, impressing with the rigid sparkle tones of ‘Shadow of the Sun’ a couple years back in perhaps their b...view item »

Moon Duo
Escape

I'm a bit skeptical with the old Wooden Shjips. I saw them live once and they were terrifyingly tedious. Most of their recorded output does very little for me although I do like some bits of Volume 1. So it's a bit of a surprise how impressed I am by this new one from offshoot band Moon Duo, especially since the apple's fallen so close to the t...view item »

Moon Duo
Circles

Moon Duo have long since shaken off the pesky “side-project” tag that plagues anybody who’s in another more famous band, and are here dropping their third full-length LP and s...view item »
