New Band: Tashaki Miyaki
Almost everything I've read about Tashaki Miyaki either compare them to The Jesus & Mary Chain or flat out state that they are the new Jesus & Mary Chain....and here they are in Toronto opening for Florence & The Machine tonight and playing their own show at The Garrison on Saturday, while Jesus & Mary Chain play tomorrow night and they are not on the bill. That's a shame!!!
Tashaki Miyaki seem to be getting grouped in with the girl group indie all-stars like Best Coast, Dum Dum Girls and Vivian Girls, but I'd say their sound is more shoegaze than the lo-fi garage rock of those bands. Their sound is more akin to J&MC best buddies Mazzy Star.
Tashaki Miyaki have already released a self titled EP on Halloween of last year via The Sounds of Sweet Nothing and now they have just released a new song called Tonight.
Listen to Tonight, watch videos for Best Friend, Something is Better Than Nothin', and Get it Right plus hear a bonus cover of The Everly Brothers All I Have to Do Is Dream.
