Record label: Sacred Bones
If you know what Erik "Ripley" Johnson does in Wooden Shjips…and you know that Johnson helms Moon Duo with his significant other, keyboardist Sanae Yamada…and you know what they sound like together…then you can probably figure out what a Sanae Yamada solo project would sound like. Thankfully, such speculation is no longer needed. Yamada's first effort under the name Vive La Void is out now on Sacred Bones Records, and it sounds pretty much what you would expect it to sound like…if you know all that stuff above.
