With a sound that combines Japanese musical drama, performance art, and fuzzed-out psychedelia, self-styled "noh-wave" band Yamantaka//Sonic Titan are a duo based out of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Formed by multi-instrumentalists Alaska B and Ruby Kato Attwood, the two came together in 2007 with the idea of fusing their Asian heritage into their music. They put their musical and visual skills to work, performing mini-operas with elaborate papercraft sets around Montreal. The band would eventually begin to operate as a collective, bringing together musicians as well as artists, costume designers, and videographers to aid in their constant fusion of visual and sonic mediums. In 2011, the band delivered its first studio album, YT//ST, which was released on Canadian label Psychic Handshake Recordings. ~ Gregory Heaney
