To celebrate the news, they’re giving away a free download of ‘High Over Blue’, a 20-minute opus which was previously only available as an iTunes bonus track.

Last year Moon Duo released their follow-up to the critically acclaimed ‘Mazes’ with the equally stellar (but differently shaped), ‘Circles’ – inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s 1841 essay of the same name, on the symbol and nature of “the flying perfect.”

For record store day 2013 they released a 12” of remixes remixes by Tom Furse (The Horrors), Life Coach (Phil Manly of Trans Am), Eric Copeland (Black Dice) and more.
