Fujiya & Miyagi

“Krautrock” is a, not so popular, musical genre that originated in Germany in the 1960s.  The term “Kraut” is an ethnic slur used to describe a German person during World War II, and the “rock” is  psychedelic, progressive music mixed with ideas from contemporary experimental classical music. If “Krautrock” were made today it  would fall under a more familiar genre, ambience.  

Combining this idea of “Krautrock” with some 90’s electronic music Fujiya & Miyagi have created a buzz-worthy sound.  Contrary to what their name might imply(Asian?), this band was formed in Brighton, England.  The ambience sound, combined with David Best’s whispering lyrics creates a very fetching consonance.

fujiya-miyagiFujiya & Miyagi released their 3rd album, Lightbulbs in September, 2008.  The band-mates are currently touring Europe, so far no dates for visiting US, but no doubt you will hear their tunes at your local indie dance parties.
