Signed to the Sacred Bones label, Moon Duo’s most recent album Occult Architecture is a
psychedelic opus in two separate volumes released in 2017. It is an intricately woven hymn to the

Architecture is a shedding of genre tropes, and an inviting in of new textures and soundscapes
reflective of the album’s shimmering Yin/Yang qualities.
