Moon Duo – Killing Time – Red Colored Vinyl, LP, Expanded Version, Sacred Bones Records, 2017
Limited red colored vinyl LP pressing. Moon Duo is the solo alter-ego of Wooden Shjips guitarist and singer Ripley Johnson. Under the Moon Duo moniker Johnson creates expansive Krautrock influenced tapestries of warm cascading fuzz and controlled feedback, organ, and accenting keyboard. This four song 12″ EP from 2009 is Moon Duo’s second release and incorporates a much more concise, composed and driving sound than before. Johnson expands on ideas only hinted at on the Sick Thirst 12″ adding a driving drum machine beat behind the thick walls of layered sound. Sacred Bones is reissuing Killing Time on colored vinyl with three bonus tracks not found on the original version. “Bopper’s Hat” originally released on a split-7″ with Bitchin Bajas on Permanent Records. “Run Around” originally released on Menagerie #2 on Blackest Rainbow Records. “Dead West Pt. II” originally released on Raven Sings the Blues Vol. 2.
