Fujiya & Miyagi at the EchoPlex in LA 3/3/09

If you live in LA and you don't have plans tomorrow night, check out electronic pop duo Fujiya & Miyagi at the EchoPlex. From their website: “They are steeped in vintage music from evocative krautrock to deep soul, with wafts of early Human League synth, Floydian Englishness and the throbbing groove of Tom Tom Club, all filtered for modern times. In total, Fujiya & Miyagi don't really sound like anything. Instead, they sound like everything condensed into perfectly arranged three minute chunks of infectious pop music, a strange hybrid of James Brown on Valium and Wire gone pop. Or maybe Serge Gainsbourg with a PhD in electronics backed by David Byrne's Eno-produced scratchy guitar mixed by MF Doom. It's Darwinism gone mad.”

Here's one of my favorite songs by them: Ankle Injuries Fujiya & Miyagi MySpace for their full tour line-up. EchoPlex 1822 Sunset Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90026 Map
