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 -

This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
