Le Guess Who? 2019 curators and Oregon psych/kraut mystics Moon Duo have personally put together a playlist for their curation at the festival, with their favorite tracks from each artist they have invited.
The music of Moon Duo manifests like a moving painting, punishing and hypnotic at the same time. Recent years have seen them develop into an intoxicating live act continually searching for a new approach to genres like psychedelia, krautrock and disco, a voyage that is reflected in their curated program for Le Guess Who? 2019.
The playlist for their curation features a.o. free-jazz evangelists Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids; Bbymutha's Southern hip-hop; American sound artist Holly Herndon; Mueran Humanos' industrial post-punk; cobwebbed guitar meditations from Prana Crafter; Sonic Boom, who also produced Moon Duo's new album 'Stars Are the Light'; Sudan Archives' enrapturing deviations of electronic music, R&B, jazz and all-out pop; Pan-Asian kraut/drone duo TENGGER; Swedish prog innovators Träd, Gräs och Stenar (Träden) and Nivhek, marking Liz Harris (Grouper)'s most stark, primordial work: fragile, feverish, ominous, and otherworldly.
