Asobi Seksu

Thursday

Asobi Seksu
Look. Directly. At. Your. Shoes. Yes, quit pondering the jheri curls of Matt Bowman from The Pigeon Detectives’ hair and get shoegazing. If The Twang could (briefly) make baggy cool, Jap-pop duo Asobi Seksu have resurrected the spirit of that other, much maligned, early-’90s guitar phenomenon (and by ‘phenomenon’ we mean the regulars in the Good Mixer loved it) and made it exciting again. However, ‘Thursday’ is not just retro-fuelled dirge.

It’s a brilliant, snow-flecked saunter of a tune that

feels like being licked awake by kittens after a hard night on the sake.
