I Almost Woke Up In Your Arms

Perfectly matching the dreamy, hazy mood I'm in today are NYC mainstays Asobi Seksu. Coming across like an Asian version of My Bloody Valentine, main songwriters Yuki and James Hanna "meld together lush yet wonderfully crushing waves of white noise in variation with synth-driven pop delicacies and melting-pot aesthetics including narratives sung in combinations of English and Japanese." The track Sooner was put on a mix for me several years ago and quickly became a favorite track. For your listening (dis)pleasure, songs off of their Self Titled debut album:

Asobi Seksu: Sooner

Asobi Seksu: I'm Happy But You Don't Like Me

Asobi Seksu: Walking On The Moon

Asobi Seksu: Let Them Wait

::EDIT:: If you're a Placebo fan, head on over to Skatterbrain right now to grab 2 tracks off the upcoming new album Meds.

Oriental is for rugs and food. Asian might be a better choice of words.
