The unchartered rhythms & tones present on this record are the result of Ripley Johnson & Sanae Yamada developing their ideas with the help of their newly acquired steam engine, Canadian drummer John Jeffrey.

jeffrey was present on the band‘s last release, 'Live in Ravenna' & Moon Duo‘s 3rd full-length was written during an evolving phase - a rare & uneasy rest period, devoid of the constant adrenaline of performing live & the stimulation of travelling through endless moving landscapes. This offered Moon Duo a new space to reflect on all of these previous experiences & cradle them while cultivating the album in the unfamiliar environment of a new dwelling; a dark Portland basement. It was from this stir-crazy fire that 'Shadow of the Sun' was forged. there are off-kilter dance rhythms, repetitive, grinding riffs, cosmic trucker boogies & even an ecstatically pretty moment.
