myspace band of the week


Mori wa ikiteiru is a folk band from Tokyo that formed in April 2012. Okada Takuro (guitar, pedal steel, mandolin, banjo) started the band as an ambient project, as evidenced by the solo track on their myspace page. Eventually, mori wa ikiteiru became a full band that was more influenced by classic rock and folk music. The full lineup includes Takekawa Satoshi (vocal, guitar, bass, synth, percussion), Taniguchi Yu (piano, wurlitzer, organ, accordion), Kuyama Naomichi (bass, guitar, piano), Ookubo Junya (sax, flute, trumpet) and Masumura Kazuhiko (drums).

Their first CD-R Foam of the Daze was released in December and is available at Jet Set Records. You can listen to the first two tracks on SoundCloud.
