Far Out Far East Psych Rock

Kikagaku Moyo, a Japanese psych-rock band, is returning to Eugene to promote their new release. It’s called Stone Garden EP. It’s out now and it was recorded in Prague. As if this doesn’t sound awesome enough already, a statement from the band says the Stone Garden EP “was influenced by the raw and seemingly endless jams of psychedelic pioneers. The freeform songs that emerged from those sessions were refined over several months at the band’s home in Tokyo, where each song was sculpted into an uncommon form.” So come join me as I throw up a peace sign while giving out a slow and spacey “righteous, dude.” Dialing up the cool quotient on this show even further, Kikagaku Moyo invited Eugene’s own psych-rock powerhouse Snow White to join them on stage alongside Sugar Candy Mountain 10 pm Saturday, May 20, at Hi-Fi Lounge; $10 advance, $12 door, 21-plus.
