I remember hearing them a while ago and dismissing them as generic math-rock but that song's pretty good!

Ooh, I was actually planning on making a thread for their new album, had the title in my head and all.

I'm stopping myself from listening to the stream because I want a higher quality audio release but it sounds very good indeed.

Their last album THE was my favorite album of 2013, and probably my most successful musical missionary effort, since quite a lot of people I gave it to agreed. Fully formed debut, gorgeous details revealing themselves through repeat listens. While waiting for the new album I suggest listening to it if you're unfamiliar with the group. Their music is on Spotify http://open.spotify.com/album/3OnXkM3qNaABUR3vgb4i5O

I like them but my Japanese girlfriend absolutely hates them, so they're banned from our household. She listens to different stuff like B'z, Mr.Children, Glay, Utada Hikaru, etc., though.

dumb name but these two songs are cool

They're unlikely to hire a permanent new drummer anytime soon http://beehy.pe/interview-tricot-japan/

but listening to it that mix of drummers doesn't really define the album in any way. The woman they brought on live tours last year did a great job: http://youtu.be/hW_ayjXr1Lk

Have they recorded the final song in that show, Matsuri? I like that one.

Do these five drummers cancel each other out then? :-)

Get a Don Caballero vibe from the initial post.

They took turns to play a song then all five did a bit of a drum circle thing in the middle of one track.

I'm really digging this album. Suppose I need to go and get their other stuff, eh?

ultros ultros-ghali, Thursday, 9 April 2015 19:28 (two years ago) Permalink

Actually, I prefer their older stuff.

If I had to rank their releases:

1. 小学生と宇宙 (School Children and The Cosmo)
2. 爆裂パニエさん (Bakuretsu Tricot-san)
3. T H E
4. A N D
5. バキューン ("Bakyuun")

A N D is still pretty cool, though

F♯ A♯ (∞), Thursday, 9 April 2015 19:55 (two years ago) Permalink

Typo up there, sorry.

2 is 爆裂トリコさん if you're trying to find it online

F♯ A♯ (∞), Thursday, 9 April 2015 19:58 (two years ago) Permalink

Xp Yes. This new album, good as it is, is not the absolute revelation and aotd candidate that was 'THE', a class of its own.

Here's the Music Japan episode with tricot performing http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc252541/

It's quite bizarre seeing them with Morning Musume and Sexy Zone, E-Girls and Perfume. Credit goes to the producers I guess - as far as I know tricot is still only signed to their self-made indie label.

abcfsk, Monday, 14 December 2015 05:58 (one year ago) Permalink

I really loved THE, but AND has a dense surface of hyperkinetic chops that I just bounce off. Maybe they have ascended to the stratosphere and my ageing brain is left behind, although I listen to a lot of Autechre and feel it's quite straightforward.

MatthewK, Monday, 14 December 2015 06:22 (one year ago) Permalink

Maybe it's because I heard it first but I prefer A N D over T H E and the rest of the stuff I've heard, even though everyone tells me they're better. So many hooks.

Hope it's better than singles/EPs they put out after AND, I thought they were a but formulaic. I'm probably still apparently the only person to prefer AND to THE though so I might just have wrong opinions on this band

Looking forward to it, hoping for a European tour.

In the meantime Tricot-influenced Hong Kong group GDJYB just put out a very good album.

I haven't really been blown away by any of the new stuff I've heard off this; I will still probably get it and enjoy it well enough though. And to be genre pedant for a minute I really don't think the math-rock tag has ever really applied, especially not now they're essentially a decent pop-rock band with the occasional time signature change.

ultros ultros-ghali, Thursday, 20 April 2017 15:54 (three months ago) Permalink

ya never rly considered tricot math

they have mathy moments but go back to almost standard rock/j-rock
