Mitchell Akiyama - "enfin, rien est gagne"

Deconstructionist piano and cello compositions from If Night is a Weed and Day Grows Less.

World's End Girlfriend - "We Are The Massacre"

From The Lie Lay Land. Remember GYBE!? What happened to post-rock? This is Japanese and pretty good approximation of what it would sound like if you haven't listened to any music since Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven. Here is what the author says about it:

... there are tens of thousands of moths creating a gate. The moths’ wings are hitting each other and there is a lot of ‘scale’ floating in the air. It sparkles like a fog, and sticks on the skin of people who pass through the gate. By becoming covered in the ‘scale’, a threshold is made between us and the world, and at the same time, you enter another world. Once you pass through the gate, that world is covered in the sparkling powder, and continues on that way...
Isn't that cute?

I realized that song sounds A LOT like GYBE! Many of the other songs take more of a noise stance and jazzy at times. The whole album should really be listened to, they are not a post rock singles band.
