Asobi Seksu @ Cedar Court, SXSW 2009 by

mp3: Asobi Seksu – Familiar Light

Now I won’t be the first to write about Asobi Seksu in an exciting manner (they’ve been around since 2004) but it’s great when a band you think you’re going to love gives you a reason to do just that. They were on fire, almost literally due to 30 degree heat, at SXSW yesterday. With guitar, drums, bass and keys building from a gentle wave to a barrage of sound layered with effects and reverb. It’s a sound that many have made their name with in recent years but the angelic vocals of Yuki Chikudate, some in English, some in Japanese give them an edge over their competitors. They have a bit of an indie dance thing going on too at times which you can’t say of people like Mogwai can you! Their name means Casual Sex in colloquial Japanese by the way.

For Fans Of: Mogwai, Explosions In The Sky, School Of Seven Bells.
