Japanese, not Russian

I had a weekend in London during which my ankle swelled up like a grapefruit. I think this was my body telling me to settle the feck down. So, I'm back to blogging.

Boris is a japanese experimental 3 piece. I'd love to say just listen to the track below and you'll have a pretty good idea of what's going on, but they range through everything from pop to ambient doom, to lord only knows what. They've been around since 1996, but have earned very little attention in western media, likely due to the fact that most lyrics are in Japanese.

They're another rare band who has a female lead guitarist, and again, even rarer; can really fucking rip it. Currently, they're touring the US and Canada, trying to muster up a bit of support, so if you check their page and see a show nearby, go check it out.
