When Moon Duo’s last full length, Mazes, was released in 2011 there was a limited edition bonus CD that came with it exclusively for retail featuring remixes of the album tracks by the likes of Gary War, Sonic Boom, Psychic Ills and others. The bonus disc was so well received that the band decided to release it as a limited 12” on RSD in 2012 and will do it again with their new album Circles. This time the remixes are from Portland/ Kranky Record’s artist White Rainbow, Black Dice member Eric Copeland, Zombie Zombie, Tom Furse of the Horrors, Sun Araw, Phil Manley of Trans Am, Life Coach, Umberto, and Finnish band K-X-P.
As Fact put it, Dracula Lewis makes “expansive, pseudo-horror-flick music that oscillates between ethereal ambience and grinding, zombie-attack noise freakouts”.
Whatever the words used to describe Dracula Lewis, there’s a dark magic and hypnotic allure to the distorted electronics, samples, chants & loops.
