Asobi Seksu Announce Fall US Tour With Loney Dear Transparence 10” Available August 25th on Polyvinyl


Asobi Seksu is releasing a limited edition 10″ with four songs on August 25th. Two of the songs are unreleased tracks from the Hush recording sessions. The lead track “Transparence” is taken from Hush – but is given a new introduction, and there’s also a remix of the song by the hypnotic percussive band Aa (aka BIG A little a).

The 10” comes in clear vinyl and is limited to 1,000 copies. You can pre-order it now and it will ship August 14 from Polyvinyl Record Co. Also included is a code for a free digital download of all songs in MP3 format. Pre-order here.

Asobi Seksu LIVE On KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” :

LAist : “Do not let her small stature fool you, Yuki Chikudate will tear you apart. She has the voice of an angel (and not the namby pamby naked cherub kind either. The old testement kind with fiery swords that descend upon you and blast your head off with the word of God.)”

SPIN **** (4 Stars) : “This Brooklyn group’s previous albums established them as shoegaze confectioners, molding candy swirls out of Yuki Chikudate’s soaring, translucent voice and guitarist James Hanna’s Kevin Shields–worshiping production. But here, Asobi Seksu do something My Bloody Valentine can’t — leave Shields behind. “Sing Tomorrow’s Praise” and “Me & Mary” evoke iciness over icing, with more expansive cool than insidious sweetness. And the duo’s seasick guitars (“Layers”), ethereal synths (“Gliss”), and Japanese lyricism (“Meh No Mae”) still provide plenty of geeky studio epiphanies.”

NYLON : “…the band makes music that sounds like daybreak. Think twinkling, shimmering, echoing, murmuring tracks. Even when the New York-based band was playing fuzzy shoegaze rock, they managed to a find a way to inject a bit of beauty into the simplest of pop songs.”

DCist : “Tiny vocalist Yuki Chikudate has a big voice, and her high notes soared over the band’s fuzzy guitar and bass and pounding drums.”

UNCUT **** (4 Stars) : “Sumptuous slices of bliss-pop with an art-punk edge”

PLAN B : “After a period as America’s finest shoegaze revivalists, Asobi Seksu now leave genres behind and document the night sky”

CLASH : “‘Contenders for being one of the most inventive bands out there”
