* Vanishing Twin Big Moonlight (Ookii Gekkou) Ookii Gekkou Fire Third LP from UK band who have the 1990s space-age dubby jazz-pop thing going on, RIYL Stereolab et al (one of the Stereolab folks guests on guitar here, in fact.) Band name is Japanese for “big moonlight” if you keep track of such things. The center of the album ventures away from the core model into retro sci-fi soundtrack territory (4) and Sun Ra-inspired lounge (5) and a trip to the David Lynch drive-in (6) while the first three and last three songs stay closer to what we might expect based on a Stereolab namedrop. Very nice, very mellow, very groovy. All clean.
