Mouse on the Keys

Busy and sad yesterday ended with going to see (more like hear, actually) Mouse on the Keys, japanese band starting as trio, playing as a quartet a year ago (previous time I saw them) and as a quintet now. Since they're not terribly famous, but are incredibly good, I decided to recommend them to any audiophiles. I'm not really good at specifying music genres, but remember MotK being called a jazz - post-rock combination, which might not be wrong.

The basic trio consisted of drums and two keybords, one of which always played as piano, the other sometimes as bass, producing a strong, rock-like sound - for me the perfect term would be 'juicy', mostly because the later on, with the aquisition of two brass instruments (I didn't figure which exactly) they experiment towards the increasing 'dryness'.

Here is an example, one of their more famous compositions (also the 'juiciest' one):

Also the newly created club didn't figure it's acoustics yet, so yesterday's concert sounded a bit like crap (you know the sound of crap, don't you? :D). Anyhow, that would be all.

A piece of wisdom: if at first you don't succeed, then skydiving probably isn't for you.


  1. whoa that sounds amazingly similar to the opening theme of hellsing, bravo. still, it's not the type of music i'd be listening on my way to college

  2. haha love that piece of wisdom, that's why they invented doubles diving

  3. That sounds great! I love the keyboard.
