Both tracks are superb. Mushi No Uta is just so beautiful it made me tear up thinking of my mother growing up in the late sixties and early seventies and the folk music of that era.
Favorite track: Mushi No Uta.
This is a limited release as a part of the Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 4.
The first song, Gypsy Davey, is a reworking of the traditional British folk song by the same name. We referenced Sandy Denny's arrangement from the 1971 album Fotheringay for our performance. Kikagaku Moyo recorded the track in London with guest vocalist Kandice Holmes, aka Bells.
The second song, Mushi No Uta, was written by Tomo and Go and recorded last summer in their living room.
Both of these were recorded in brief windows during our touring in 2019.
The most traditional psych-rock project these guys have made. They stick to the classic formula but adding their own twists and turns to each song. Kodama is the absolute stand-out for me and is genuinely my favorite Kikagaku Moyo song of all time and not gonna lie, the 2021 reissue gold vinyl looks so cool!
PLAY THIS SHIT AT A PARTY AND GO CRAZY!!! naakz
Simply one of my favorite albums in contemporary music. Every single track sets a different mood, and they're all quite dreamy. If you can, I highly recommend seeing these guys live as well. It's quite the experience. jaylecavalier
