Nekozuraski – Ahostractions

Nekozuraski – Ahostractions
OK, I admit it first threw me a bit off hearing music with the lyrics in a foreign tongue – Japanese in the case of this band from Osaka. But in the words of Mac Davis, “Music is the universal language and love is the key.” This band obviously loves making music and even if you do not understand the words, if you like music that fuses jazz, rock, R&B, and other stylings, you don’t have to be fluent in any other language except music. After all, many American bands have had huge popularity in the Orient, and this band seems to have influences from Zappa and the Red Hot Chili Pepper to the Four Tops and P-Funk. There is some extremely solid instrumentation here and the vocals can portray the emotions present without the help of a translator. While I highly recommend this to our friends over in Japan, there are people worldwide who respect musical innovation and talent that will enjoy this no matter what language it is in.  – MW
