Ryley Walker & Kikagaku Moyo - Deep Fried Grandeur (2018)

Post image

Ryley Walker joins forces with Kikagaku Moyo to venture into (equally unpronounceable) Khruangbin’s blissed-out Asian psyche-blues territory.

Recorded live at Le Guess Who? in Utrecht, The Netherlands, it features the two bands, Kikagaku Moyo from Tokyo and Ryley Walker’s four piece jamming over two sides of vinyl.

Like many of these improvised, single take albums - you can relive it without repetition multiple times.
That however can be a problem - that immediacy element is missing from this record.

Time will tell.

I possibly heard about this record while listening to the “All Songs Considered” podcast on one of my mindful(less) walks. It was one of those WTF moments where you stop in your tracks and take note of who and what before it’s all lost.
