Video Of The Week – Moon Duo – ‘Animal’


‘Animal’ is from Moon Duo’s upcoming Third album ‘Shadow Of The Sun.’ It’s a driving slice of cosmic punk psych rock and equally hypnotic is the video starring pro skater and all round psychedelic dandy Richie Jackson, who directed and edited the video.  As you’ll see, Mr Jackson appears to be a strong advocate of D.I.Y transport and ‘No Skateboarding’ signs or indeed the lack of a skateboard certainly aren’t about to impede his wild eyed progress. It also features SNL’s Kyle Mooney, whose enthusiastic reaction at the end of the video to having someone leap on his car roof, is in stark contrast to what we anticipate ours would have been ie/ ‘WTF are you doing? ‘

Moon Duo, Ripley Johnson, and Sanae Yamada are reunited with Canadian drummer John Jeffrey for ‘Shadow Of The Sun’ and have just announced details of a North American and UK tour (details below)
