Tokyo’s Kikagaku Moyo announce new EP alongside summer European live dates

Following last year’s album House In The Tall Grass, Tokyo’s Kikagaku Moyo have announced plans for a new EP alongside summer European live dates.

Stone Garden was released on vinyl and digital on April 21st via the record label the band run, Guruguru Brain.

Stone Garden, we’re told, started in a basement studio in Prague with a nearly continuous session over several days and nights. The original concept was ‘influenced by the raw and seemingly endless jams of psychedelic pioneers’. The freeform songs that emerged from these sessions were refined over several months at the band’s home in Tokyo, where each song was sculpted into an uncommon form.

The band run their own record label, Guruguru Brain, focusing on releasing underground artists from Asia, including Kikagaku Moyo. Last year they curated a stage at Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia, and they will return to the UK this Summer for a headline tour (dates below).

For now though, ‘In A Coil’:
