It is 2021 and I can change my mind whenever I choose and I chose to change it now about live albums/shows. I was not really a fan of the live album but I have actually changed my mind a while ago since I have been hooked on the live show from Girl Band, Oh Sees, The Black Angels and King Gizzard and the sorts. So now we have yet a again an amazing live album, this time by the Japanese psych band Kikagaki Moyo at Levitation Fest.
If you are in need of more psychedelic (and noise) Japanese music then wait no longer, it is here.

Some of my favourite artists like Kikagaku Moyo and and Ariel Pink have already released a single. But now we get a track from the German brothers Tonstartssbandht and this makes me so happy. since their latest release ‘Sorcerer’ I have been waiting very patiently for new music. A track from ‘Sorcerer’ is in my absolute essentials list.
Now this new track is called ‘Olde Feelings’ in as all I hopen for. the dreamy vibe and trippy guitar work an floaty vocals makes this a really good Tonstartssbandht track. Listen to it, enjoy it and check out some other tracks from Looking Glass while you are here.

Kikagaku Moyo started in the summer of 2012 busking on the streets of Tokyo.
Though the band started as a free musiccollective, it quickly evolved into a tight group of multi-instrumentalists.
Kikagaku Moyo call their sound psychedelicic because it encompasses a broad spectrum of influence.
Their music incorporates elements of classical Indian music, Krautrock, Traditional Folk, and 70s Rock.
Most importantly their music is about freedom of the mind and body and building a bridge between the supernatural and the present.
Improvisation is a key element to their sound.
