Events in Japan are on all our minds, the aftermath and aftershocks of the earthquake, the tsunami, the nuclear crises…It seems apt to put together music from Japanese artists and songs about Japan for Tuesday’s Legends and Lowlife. It seems in times like this we feel so small compared to nature. Music is something that unites us all, in so universal and can bring hope in situations that may seem hopeless.

Mono is one of my favorite bands (orchestras?) ever, so achingly lovely, so of course we will be playing at least one of their tracks. Other artists scheduled include;

NisennenmondaiShugo Tokumaru, Headlights, Miho Hatori, Lutris, Icon Girl PistolsEx Girl, Asobi Seksu – to download click this link , 4Bonjour‘s Parties, The Suzan …plus other artists  from around the globe; Ravens Moreland, the Lively Ones
