A duo who've put considerable work into exploring the universes that can be located within two chords, Moon Duo may not be a band that anyone is expecting surprises or musical evolution from, rather a journey into their comforting mind-meld of Spacemen 3 drone and krautrock texture. 'Occult Architecture Vol. 2' bucks this trend in style, swapping the imposing darkness of its predecessor for open spaces and beatific soundscapes. The Balearic Neil Young lilt of 'Mirror's Edge' and alien glam stomp of 'The Crystal World', indeed, draw a map towards worlds and visions even admirers of this band didn't realise they were capable of.
