Fujiya And Miyagi Ventriloquizzing on 180g LP + Download
After two years experimenting in the shadows, cutting edge minimalist-funk heroes Fujiya & Miyagi are back with their darkest and most propulsive set yet. The band's fourth full-length, Ventriloquizzing has a dark heart, via its throbbing electro-glam beat and menacing lyrics.
"I think there's an underlying anger, or perhaps just annoyance, at institutions and people in general, and probably ourselves too," says singer/guitarist David Best. "And it also seemed like the right time to work with someone else to help us avoid going to our default setting."
In this case, the band brought in a co-producer for the first time in the form of famed producer Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver, Pernice Brothers), their first time not self-producing. Written in Brighton, UK and recorded in Sacramento, CA; Ventriloquizzing is likely the first (and last) black comedy you can dance to.
