Editors’ Notes

The production on 2011’s Fluorescence shifts from the shoegaze aggression of their earlier albums for a tighter focus on singer Yuki Chikudate. Her vocals are moved ahead of the guitar and keyboard swirls, turning the usually agitated ambience into a decisive pop move. It’s still pretty difficult to discern if Chikudate’s singing in Japanese or a breathy English in many spots. The emotional outpourings are in a universal language. Her falsetto during “In My Head” sounds like an angel floating in the clouds. “Deep Weird Sleep” throws up blasts of technologically enhanced instrumental work, while “Counterglow” brings guitarist James Hanna to the forefront for a rhythmically challenging trip. The easeful textures and splendid melody of “Ocean” make for a most rewarding and accessible moment. “Trance Out” layers the vocals atop an electronic symphony. “Perfectly Crystal” sends the band into the disco. The Deluxe Edition includes a remix of “Trails” that’s pretty severe, and the bonus cut “All Around” that digs even deeper into the breezy pop arena.

Bearing a hyper-stylized and glitzy graphic design sense, a pretty and petite Japanese female singer who sings alternately in Japanese and English, and a band name with a hint of nod-and-a-wink naughtiness (it's claimed to be a Tokyo-based slang term that means "playful sex"), Asobi Seksu come across like the latest Japanese import, the newest in a long line of ironic Shibuya-kei indie pop artists following Puffy AmiYumi, Cibo Matto, and Pizzicato Five. In fact, the quartet is based out of New York...
