For their first three records, Escape, Mazes, and Circles, Portland’s reverb-drenched drone-pop purveyors Moon Duo accurately reflected their name, since the band consisted of two people: Ripley Johnson (guitar, vocals) and Sanae Yamada (keyboards, vocals). On their fourth studio effort, Shadow of the Sun, however, Johnson and Yamada have traded in the machine-generated beats for flesh-and-blood drummer (and certified Canadian) John Jeffrey. Instead of a shift into a more commercial direction, the change is surprisingly subtle. If anything, they just sound a little looser and more relaxed. The new formation should make for a smoother segue between the headliners and Kinski, who feature the powerhouse drumming of Barrett Wilke, and Shitty Person, the new solo configuration for drummer Benjamin Thomas-Kennedy of Lesbian and Fungal Abyss.
