Japanese psychedelic band Kikagaku Moyo have announced the release date of 13th May for their new album, House in the Tall Grass, via the Guruguru Brain record label.

Kikagaku Moyo describe their music as encompassing "a broad spectrum of influence & elements of classical Indian music, Krautrock, traditional folk, and 70s Rock". May can't come soon enough if their album's atmospheric and elemental first single 'Kogarashi' is anything to go by. Tour dates are listed after the single's stream below:

I came up with the melody and rhythm of Kogarashi, when I was about to fall asleep at the park” explains vocalist Tomo Katsurada. “It was a nice warm day in the Autumn to get stoned and pass out in the park. I remember I was surrounded by the multi-coloured dead leaves and felt warm when I woke up. But all of the sudden, Kogarashi (the Autumn wind) blew all of the leaves away. It was a beautiful and psychedelic Autumn moment.
