A friend of mine recently insisted that I listen to this atonal band from japan with a name that neither of us really know how to say(well a least I don't). Syzygys play music featuring a modified reed organ, tuned to Harry Partch's 43 note to the octave scale. This song is from a compilation of all of their studio albums released on John Zorn's Tzadik Label.
Their official web site is great, sharing such tidbits as the bands collective interests: Frontier things, sweets,hot stuffs, wine, salt. It is not surprising that one half of Syzygys is active in scoring video game soundtracks, which I bet are great! Which makes me think of this rumor that circulated in my elementary school about this kid who's name I forget being a large fan of Nintendo music
"I hear he records Nintendo music onto cassettes and listens to it over and over" someone once told me. This sort of behavior was looked down on.
We are moving towards a 2 week only hosting of mp3s so if you haven't checked out the archives do it quick...
Fluxblog posted a song by the A-Frames, a Sub Pop band. The song is great. I thought I'd mention it here there has been discussion of lesser know sub pop bands.
