Completely Uncensored

Goddamn, I just saw We’re From Japan and they totally fucking rocked it. Fuck prosac, if you’re feeling down in the dumps go check out some live music! I’m pretty new to the progressive post-rock scene a la Mogwai, Godspeed You Black Emperor, and Isis, but I don’t care: I loved it!

There were no vocals in the entire set. It was all instrumental. Boring you say? Ohhhh no. There was no boring music, unless you think the sound of the ocean is boring. It was symphonic wave after wave that ebbed and flowed and swelled and boomed and caressed.

I’ve been curious to see them for quite some time and, clearly, I wasn’t disappointed. Two guitars, bass, and drums they all seemed to be doing their own thing, each lost in their own little piece of the music , yet somehow they melded together into this awesome wall of sound.

Check them out online or catch their next show. If you don’t dig them, well…there’s really nothing I can do for you.
