myspace band of the week

Awai is an experimental noise/doom band from Kagoshima. The band members are Mei Ryuu (guitar, vocals), Setsuko Yuuto (guitar), Daisuki Hachiro (guitar), the one (vocals), Atsuko Ai (keyboard), ‘uno’ gillis (drums), and Habiki Natsumi (cello, french horn). They like to think of themselves as a small cult rather than a band, which just adds to the mystery.

Illinois based label Fahra Recordings released both of Awai’s EPs as a single album this October. You can download Electric Blanket / Past, Present, Funeral at Amazon, CD Baby, iTunes, etc.
