Default Syzygys (japanese band)

Just found this band and I'm really quite liking what I hear.

It's described as "Microtuned Pop" probably because it's pop songs played using Harry Partch's 43 note microtonal scale.

The dissonance can be weird at first but you get used to it.


Suicide on a Fine Day - Syzygys - YouTube

Thoughts?

I actually liked it immediately, mate.

Have you heard some of the experimental Japanese 60's music like Takeshi Terauchi:

I'll give it a listen

And the track I linked is probably the least atonal of the bunch, I've put a download link in the first post so you can hear the rest.

You sir are a fine gent

I'm really enjoying it actually, your recommendations this year have been fantastic I might observe. You'd make a better moderator than jayshredds in my opinion

Well, I actually liked "Feedbacker", to be quite honest! That and of course "Laminate Pet Animal", de-capitalised for your convenience!

I'm really enjoying this too - so thanks!

You had me at microtonal pop.

Great suggestion.

(Also looking into Salami's suggestion)
