MUSIC: Fujiya & Miyagi

I'm a little late posting something on Fujiya & Miyagi, but I felt I needed to give the whole album a listen before posting on them. Don't get me wrong, I like the single tracks, but it felt like this was a project that would work better as a whole. Well, I think I was right. This British trio has crafted a beautiful, melodic, and catchy collection of new electro pop. And the good news is you won't have to wait long until the album is released stateside. From their website:

Deaf Dumb & Blind Recordings will release Transparent Things,
featuring bonus track Reeboks in Heaven, in the USA & Canada on 23rd January 2007.
Available online now in the USA from

For the time being, here's the excellent first track off Transparent Things.
