Moon Duo launch Slow Down Low

Moon Duo have streamed their track Slow Down Low from upcoming third album Shadow Of The Sun.

The follow-up to 2012’s Circles is launched on March 2 via Sacred Bones. Founders Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada are joined by drummer John Jeffrey, who first appeared on last year’s live album.

They say Shadow Of The Sun was written during “a rare and uneasy rest period, devoid of the constant adrenaline of performing live and the stimulation of traveling through endless moving landscapes.”

But the situation offered them an opportunity for reflection, which served them well when they decided to record in “a dark Portland basement.”

Lead track Animal was launched last month. The album is available for pre-order via Amazon and iTunes.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
