OMFG don’t even get me started on MOTFD. their first album (self-titled) legit makes me feel things no other music does. I love their other 2 albums, too…I almost took a 20 hour bus trip to see them in Toronto last year but life just didn’t cooperate
they reformed last year and have been playing live shows pretty consistently since & are working on new music - they released a new song a couple months ago and it’s really good!! I’m really hopeful they’ll release an album before too long. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9Vjk1tIygo
their bassist/singer, Natsuko Miyamoto, just released a solo album that I think is all acoustic songs…I really wanna hear it but I have no way of getting it currently. I’m keeping an eye out though.
they’re pretty heavily influenced by Number Girl (as are, apparently, every other alt rock-y sorta band out of Japan since like 2005) who are definitely worth a listen themselves. I adore Boredoms, too, especially Soul Discharge (the 29 minute version with the weird gasmask cover, I haven’t heard the re-released version or whatever the other one is that’s way longer).
