Kikagaku Moyo - 2014 - Forest Of Lost Children

Kikagaku Moyo is a five piece psychedelic rock band from Tokyo, Japan. Forest Of Lost Children is their second LP and third release overall, with a physical release courtesy of Beyond Beyond Is Beyond. Kikagaku Moyo, or Geometric Shapes in English, play a riff heavy, melodic brand of psychedelic rock that stays rooted in rock but isn't afraid of stretching out into some jams. This is the sound of a very confident band that knows the sound they want and having no trouble settling into it. They are garnering comparisons to bands like Acid Mothers Temple and The Incredible String Band. Highlights include Semicircle, Kodama, Smoke And Mirrors, Hem and Streets Of Calcutta. If you're looking for some progressive, psychedelic rock and roll, Kikagaku Moyo's Forest Of Lost Children will serve well.
