Sacred Bones has always been an special label, the name brings up somthing magical in me, their bands are so wide on the musical spectrum, between experimental an dreamy, it is just amazing to look in to everything and discover all this gems. Now they released a various artists compilation to To celebrate the 50th anniversary of both the self-titled Black Sabbath album and ‘Paranoid called ‘What Is This That Stands Before Me?’. The thing that is immediatly clear and shows why the bands on the label and ofcourse the label itself are so special is because these covers are so unique, each artist truly made a song in their own style, not like many covers just mimic the track but they truly blended and molded the songs in their own way. Just listen to the first song by The Soft Moon, it is an industrial version of the track ‘Black Sabbath’ and then you know you are in for a ride. An 80 techno russian like version? A sludgemetal one or a dark pop version. Some close to recognizing the original some far away. How Hillary Woods molds N.I.B. into her own version is almost sacred. Zola Jesus doing changes gives me the chills and Moon Duo, wich is one of my favourite bands takes care of one of my favourite tracks. And ending with a brutal industrial take from Uniform. This is a label and bands that are extremely professional and good at what they do.
On their new record Moon Duo proves again to be masters of the psychedelic. ‘Stars Are the Light’ is filled with feelings and dreams. If I listen to this I have the feeling I am lying on clouds made of the softest cushions, madly in love with the sky, just dreaming and floating.
‘Stars Are the Light’ is proof, proof that beauty exists, that love is real and Moon Duo made the soundtrack for it.
Out September 27 on Sacred Bones.
Listen to some more psych on Fuzzy Sun’s list.
Tune in now for their first track.
Vive la Void is the new solo project of Sanae Yamada, co-founder and keyboard player of Moon Duo. The self titled debut was created by Yamada over a two year period. Out May 4 on Sacred Bones.
The album consists of 7 tracks in wich Yamada shows what she is capable of. Ghostly synths combined with the dreamy vocals of Yamada. This is psychedelic dreampop of great quality worthy of a place between wooden shjips and moon duo.
Favorite track: Devil
