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.
