Final Thoughts:

Moon Duo was a pleasant surprise for me. I never really know what I’m getting into when I allow someone on What’s In My Bag to tell me what to listen to, but this was a winner. Really fun/dark sounding music. It’d be a perfect album to walk downtown at night to. Very cinematic sounding at times, but just overall a really great album that’s worth your attention.
