Kikagaku Moyo 幾何学模様 - The Lanes May 20th - The Lanes - Bristol

Stolen Body Records/Astral Festival and The Grey Area are delighted to finally work together to bring you the amazing Kikagaku Moyo / 幾何学模様 at The Lanes on May 20th. TICKETS ON SALE NOWKikagaku Moyo (Japanese for "geometric patterns") are a Tokyo-based psychedelic rock band whose sound incorporates elements of Krautrock, Indian ragas, and acid folk. They balance heavy, crushing jams with softer, more contemplative moments, recalling Japanese psych groups like Acid Mothers Temple and Ghost, as well as their predecessors such as Far East Family Band and the Flower Travellin' Band.The group was founded during the summer of 2012 by drummer/vocalist Go Kurosawa and guitarist/vocalist Tomo Katsurada. Joined by bassist Kotsuguy, guitarist Daoud Popal, sitarist Ryu Kurosawa, and guest vocalist/theremin player Angie Gotopo, the group recorded its self-titled debut in 2013. Initially self-released digitally, the album was given a vinyl release by Greek label Cosmic Eye later in the year, followed by an American release by Captcha Records in 2014.The group released two more albums in 2014 (Mammatus Clouds and Forest of Lost Children), and became darlings of the international psychedelic scene, with appearances at Austin Psych Fest and L.A. Psych Fest, in addition to successful tours of America, the U.K., and Europe. In 2015, the group shared split 7" singles with Moon Duo as well as Kinski and Acid Mothers Temple leader Makoto Kawabata. In 2016, the group's fourth album, House in the Tall Grass, was released by Japanese label Guruguru Brain.Hear their latest record here:https://kikagakumoyoggb.bandcamp.comOn supporting duties for the evening we are happy to welcome Nekkuro Hána to the lineup, all the way from Glasgow.They're own brand of sleazy, spaced out psychedelia will warm things up perfectly!Check out their song "Lizardman" here:https://nekkurohana.bandcamp.com/releases
