Diciamo che ho avuto la fortuna di assistere passo passo alla genesi (e quindi a ricevere i cd) degli Asobi Seksu, traduzione giapponese x Sport Fuck, nome che poi utilizzavano all'inizio (vedi passate recensio), la "Scopata Sportiva": - inizialmente tutto partiva da un Gruppone psycho_edelico lisergico di New York, a nome Theta Wave State (intervistati su koma#1), poi l'arrivo della cantante Yuki Chikudate e cambio di formazione ha dato modo al Gruppo di fare una virata pop lo-fi che coinvolgesse anche distorsioni lascive alla My Bloody Valentine e rumoristica alla Sonic Youth. Il nuovo cd, che riprende alcuni pezzi del precedente ep (leggi koma#9), viaggia ancora incerto (o libero) su quale strada scegliere, tra ballate romantiche (It's too Late, End at the Beginning), pop sbarazzino in lingua jappanoise (la traccia di apertura), o noise new-yorkese su Let Them Wait, - dividendosi o unendosi alla voce Lei e James Hanna (oramai dimentico dei tempi in cui il cursore del volume del suo microfono era a meno di uno), spesso struggenti ed evocativi (Taiyo). Mp3 presenti su mp3.com, e sul Loro sito, - naturalmente consigliati.

I feel sort of lucky, because i have had the chance to follow step by step Asobi Seksu's genesis, - translation for Sport Fuck, that is Their former name (check out past reviews): at the beginning The Thing was Theta Wave State (interviewed on koma#1), - psych(o)edelic amazing Band from New York, lost on slow lysergical trips. Then japanese muse Yuki Chikudate joined the Band for a track on Their first and only full lenght and it's been Luv. - Line-up changed, and Asobi Seksu started a new trip on indie lo-fi pop Music, calling droning distorted guitars à la My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth-ish noise. - New cd, containing some of fomer ep too (read koma#9) - floats sort of doubtfull (or still free to decide) between romantic ballads (It's too Late, End at the Beginning), catchy pop in japa-noise language (opening track) or new-york print noise too, on Let Them Wait, - with Her and James Hanna (now forgot of epoch when his microphone volume was on less 1), often melancholic and evocative (Taiyo). Well, have listen on mp3.com or Their homepage.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
