Following their split 7” with Moon Duo late last year, Tokyo’s Kikagaku Moyo have announced details of their forthcoming new album ‘House In The Tall Grass’ for release on May 13th via Guruguru Brain. The album’s atmospheric & elemental first single “Kogarashi” (the Autumn wind) is streaming online now & the band have announced a Spring UK tour.

I came up with the melody and rhythm of Kogarashi, when I was about to fall asleep at the park” explains vocalist Tomo Katsurada. “It was a nice warm day in the Autumn to get stoned and pass out in the park. I remember I was surrounded by the multi-coloured dead leaves and felt warm when I woke up. But all of the sudden, Kogarashi (the Autumn wind) blew all of the leaves away. It was a beautiful and psychedelic Autumn moment.”
