Don't Stop Believin' That Moon Duo's Debut Album Will Be Issued in February

It seems that everything winning label Woodsist touches turns to gold. So, although we were skeptical when we heard an upcoming release of theirs would be Moon Duo’s faithful full-length reworking of Journey’s 1981 AOR masterpiece Escape, we know it will turn out to be, gulp, “good.” Nah, of course we jest. The only thing in common with the two records in question is that Journey’s Escape and Moon Duo’s Escape are both called Escape. And the possible presence of some Neal Schon-style shredding on both. Regardless of your own personal musical journeys, Moon Duo’s debut will come out on February 16 and is expected to be a wild, interstellar ride given that it involves the spaced-age twosome of Erik “Ripley” Johnson (Wooden Shjips) and Sanae Yamada playing droney psychedelic jams.
