Asobi Seksu - Citrus (2006)

Early post since I'll be up north tomorrow. Asobi Seksu are a dream pop band from New York who are definitely influenced by the shoegaze scene. Songs like "Pink Cloud Tracing Paper" and "Red Sea" are just drowning in dreamy guitar fuzz similar to My Bloody Valentine's Loveless. However, what makes them stand out from the many new-gazers is their singer Yuki Chikudate. She is Japanese and sings in both English and Japanese on the album. For some reason I wasn't a fan of her vocals at first but I love them now so I don't know what I was thinking. Anyways I just bumped this album to a 4.5 pretty recently on RYM so I thought I'd share.
