Vodpod videos no longer available.

There’s a new video from School of Seven Bells song “My Cabal”, and I’m obliged to post it because I haven’t been able to get this album off my rotation since I saw them live earlier this year. I’m a bit bummed that I had to miss their set at the Triple Rock last week with Black Moth Super Rainbow, but nevertheless, sometimes conflicts emerge. For those who are interested, I did talk to some friends who attended the next day and they said that both bands were spectacular (although apparently the lighting could have been better.. take note Triple Rock…). Hopefully SVIIB aren’t burnt out on Minneapolis yet though, cause I’m holding out for another performance in the city while they’re still supporting Alpinisms. Until they return, enjoy!

Concert Review: Fujiya & Miyagi, School of Seven Bells @ 7th Street Entry

Posted in Concert Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on Friday, February 13, 2009 by Ryan Buege

Fujiyai & MiyagiFujiya & Miyagi came to the 7th St. Entry on Wednesday Feb. 11th with School of Seven Bells, and the show was nothing short of spectacular. The sold out basement club was packed wall-to-wall with a crowd who were highly anticipating the opening performance from SVIIB, and their fuzzed out, dreamy, drony psychedelic pop created an intoxicating atmosphere that did not fade until they left the stage. Sounding ultra classic, futuristic, AND foreign all at once, the twins of School of Seven Bells blend heavenly melodies over the hypnotic driving backbone of Benjamin Curtis’s guitar and electronic experimentation. Fujiya & Miyagi were even more powerful than I imagined they would be, with their bouncy electronic psych rock aided by the powerful presence of a full band. Depending on the point in their set, the crowd might have been dancing to the rhythm or swaying to the spacey fretwork; either way, it was always all fun for those who were wise enough to stick around. We were there all night and were able to snap a few photos; view them below!
