After collaborations with Kinski and Moon Duo, plus four critically acclaimed albums, Tokyo’s Kikagaku Moyo (“Geometric Patterns”) aren’t likely to play a local venue as intimate as the Sunset Tavern again, so this is a rare opportunity. On their latest long-player, House in the Tall Grass, the quintet constructs a mesmerizing acid-folk edifice with delicacy and restraint. The gentle vocals of cofounders Go Kurosawa (drums) and Tomo Katsurada (guitar) fade in and out as sitar and theremin swirl around them. Then, when they’ve got you where they want you, relaxed and open, they set their guitars to stun—the better to give your pleasure center a generous zap. Since Can and Black Sabbath never formed a super group: Kikagaku Moyo are the next best thing. KATHY FENNESSY
