Asobi Seksu (formed in 2004) is a New York City, United States based dream pop/shoegaze band. Singer Yuki Chikudate often incorporates Japanese lyrics into her songs. The band’s name in Japanese consists of two words, “asobi” meaning “play” or “for fun”, and “sekkusu” the Japanese imported word for”sex” . Their sound has been said to draw influence from the shoegazing movement of the late 1980s to early 1990s, which was coined to describe the textured and effects-heavy sound of alternative rock in that era. The band consists of Yuki Chikudate (singing|vocals), James Hanna (guitar, vocals), Haji (bass guitar|bass) and Ben Shapiro (drum kit|drums). Asobi Seksu released their eponymous debut album in 2004. The band regrouped with a new rhythm section for their second album, Citrus, which was recorded in Gigantic Studios, New York City with producer Chris Zane. One Little Indian Records re-released the band’s first album Asobi Seksu and the follow-up Citrus in 2006. The band changed its name to Asobi Seksu from the previous name, sportf*ck, when they signed to their current label. According to the band’s official website “James and Yuki have almost completed writing songs for the new record and will be hitting the studio, once again with producer Chris Zane, this summer (2008). The new album will be released on Polyvinyl Record Co., the band’s new US label.” Artist - Asobi Seksu Album - Fluorescence Release Date - 2011 Genre - Dream Pop, Shoegaze, Indie Pop, Noise Pop Tracklist 01 Coming Up 4:03 02 Trails 4:00 03 My Baby 3:34 04 Perfectly Crystal 3:48 05 In My Head 2:55 06 Leave the Drummer Out There 6:42 07 Sighs 3:48 08 Deep Weird Sleep 1:55 09 Counterglow 4:08 10 Ocean 4:08 11 Trance Out 2:43 12 Pink Light 4:28 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Asobi Seksu -

Review for Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
