Fujiya & Miyagi Play Numerous World Summer Festivals

Fujiya & Miyagi celebrate the recent recording of their most anticipated sophomore LP, due out this Fall on Deaf Dumb + Blind Recordings, with a no holds barred World Summer Tour. They were asked to join 11 world festivals, including the most prestigious UK Meltdown Festival by everybody’s favorite, Massive Attack. They will be showcasing new songs from the upcoming LP (FYI, Its amazing!), as well tunes from their now classic and critically acclaimed debut, Transparent Things. Oh and they added a new member, the drum machine has been replaced but don’t fret, please help us welcome the most amazing and dynamic drummer, Lee Adams. So their new live show is not to be missed (its truly perfect now, we just saw them at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival last week). Look out for US Fall Tour too.

LA Times – “The cool professionalism with which Fujiya & Miyagi lay out their grooves is a thing of beauty.”

New York Times – “..it’s too fun and innocuous to ever tire of.”

Spin Magazine – “This is dance music downsized for iPods but also indie rock expanded for the dance floor”

Pitchfork Media – “They’re doing for 70s krautrock and motorik what the DFA did for early 80s electro. Indeed, without even being asked, they’ve gone and done the unthinkable: They’ve actually made krautrock fun.”
