October 31st at Deep Ellum Art Co. - Kikagaku Moyo have come a long way - both literally and metaphorically - since their humble beginnings busking on the streets of Tokyo back in 2012. A tight-knit group of five friends who bonded over the desire to play freely, and explore music associated with space and psychedelia, their initial ambitions were modest - semi-regular slots in the cramped clubs of the city's insular music scene. Yet the band's progressive, folk-influenced take on psychedelia marked them out from their peers and re-started Japan's psych rock scene; it also brought them international acclaim. With a settled line up - Go Kurosawa (drums, vox), Ryu Kurosawa (sitar), Tomo Katsurada (guitar, vox), Daoud Popal (guitar), Kotsuguy (bass) - and a signature sound that blended classical Indian music, Krautrock, traditional folk, 70s rock, and acid-tinged psych, the band sold out shows across Europe and founded their own label, Guruguru Brain, to showcase not just their own work, but the under-represented music scene in East Asia.
