BOYISH: Your New Favorite Japanese Shoegaze Pop Band
Thanks to a very nice guy named Rafael Grafals (you know him as FAVRTSM), I found about a great up and coming band. BOYISH is a new group from Japan. They play a very nice combination of shoegaze music and indie pop slathered in a beautiful layer of reverb. It sounds like if My Bloody Valentine combined with Best Coast. And normally, I wouldn't be into that, but these guys do it so well. So, it's kind of.... Really awesome. Definitely check out their new record, Kissing The Sea here. They have a cassette of it available for $13 (for those of you who are thinking that's expensive, it comes with buttons and a zine). Buy that.
