Moon Duo - "Sleepwalker"

Moon Duo are getting ready to release their second album, Circles, out on October 1 via Souterrain Transmissions. Inspiration for many of the songs themes, as well as the title Circles, came from Ralph Waldo Emerson's 1841 essay by the same name, on the symbol and nature of "the flying Perfect." From the opening lines: "The eye is the first circle; the horizon which it forms is the second; and throughout nature this primary figure is repeated without end." Stream or download the first single from the album, "Sleepwalker."

In addition to performing at the 2012 Austin City Limits Music Festival, Moon Duo will play an Official ACL Late Night Show at Holy Mountain (formerly Beauty Bar) on October 13 with Christian Bland + The Revelators.
