mudy on the 昨晩 (sakuban) - VOI

So these five ordinary college students from Japan released one of my favorite albums of 2008 -- an instrumental math-rock (two of the guitarists are economics majors anyway) ditty known as 'VOI'. Fans of toe or Battles will feel right at home -- minus toe's more spacious gaps of simplicity or Battles' recent usage of gnomes for vocalists.

If you haven't heard this album yet, do yourself a favor a take a slice out of Japan's (seemingly never-ending) instrumental pie.
