AA Loves: Made In Japan

My greedy little ears have just been blessed by the music of Made In Japan as will yours in a few short moments.

Formed in 2006, this quartet from Australia mixes tightly interwoven guitar melodies that resemble the carefully crafted sounds of Explosions In The Sky with delightfully catchy pop lyrics. Unmuddied by distortion, their talent is brazenly on display. After only a few bars, it’s clear that each song has been carefully crafted so that every note, drum hit, and chord are exactly where they need to be.

Be sure to listen to their single “Pairs,” which is a sneak peak at their forthcoming release and a very good sign of things to come. While you’re at it, head over to Bandcamp to take a peek at their self-titled EP that was independently released in early 2009.
