Tonight in Music: Fujiya & Miyagi

posted by on October 27 at 10:25 AM

Fujiya & Miyagi - Ankle Injuries
Fujiya & Miyagi
Sometimes that notorious British reserve can result in fantastic music. Exhibit A: Fujiya & Miyagi. When they surfaced in 2006 with the neo-Krautrock homage Transparent Things, their whispered, non sequitur lyrics amused as much as their minimal, cruise-control jams riveted—in an understated manner, of course. With their 2008 follow-up, Lightbulbs, F&M downshift, emphasizing funk and melody—with restraint, of course. Still, they’re best when they emulate Neu!’s laser-focused whoosh, as their clipped, bobbing bass lines, analog-synth daubs, and chugging beats inspire glorious perpetual-motion dreams. (Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St, 324-8000. 8 pm, $12, 21+.) by Dave Segal
