Fujiya & Miyagi - Ankle Injuries


If you mistake Fujiya & Miyagi for a Japanese experimental duo, don't worry. A) I made the same mistake, and B) on the song "Photocopier" they even sing "We are just pretending to be Japanese." So, don't even try to call them on it, they already beat you to it.

You might be surprised to find out that their sound is something more like Neu! mixed with Hot Chip. Eeeek! It's like a sonic overload! Damn this infectious song with its addictive bassline, subtle harmonies and wicked chorus ("Fu-Jiyi Mi-yagi"). It'll have you chanting "Fujiyi Miyagi" all day long. Or you can start singing along while studying the human anatomy on "Collarbone." The album was released back in May in Britain, but still does not have a North American distributor. Come on guys, what are you wait for? Get on them before you don't.

Bonus Track - Collarbone
