Kikagaku Moyo (Japanese for Geometric Patterns) progressed from their early days in Tokyo's experimental scene to traveling the world with their mind-bending sounds, exploring different facets of psychedelia on each new release and blowing minds with a live show that was just as searching as their records. The shifting dimensions of the band's new LP Masana Temples is informed by various experiences the band has had with traveling through life together, ranging from the months spent on tour to making a pilgrimage to Lisbon to record with jazz musician Bruno Pernadas. The songs came together in the wake of the band breaking up the communal house most of them shared in Tokyo, with some members relocating to Amsterdam and others moving to different parts of Japan. The transition from roots in a scene to scattered around various locales made for an even more enhanced understanding of how mystically connected the sum of their parts were when the band reunited to record new material. This music is the product of time spent in motion and all of the bending mindsets that come with it.
