大好きな下北沢から素晴らしいバンドSpangle call Lilli line を見つけ出すv (ちょっちょっと変なバンド名だけど(汗))
シンガーはイラストレーター。ギタリストはフォトグラファー。他のギタリストはグラフィックデザイナー。面白いね!!!日本に住んでる時、このバンド知らなかった。残念ですね。このような美しい音楽を聞いているのはとても面白いし、リラックスする。ライブに行ければ幸せ者だな・・・

I’ve fallen pretty hard for this amazing little band, Spangle call Lilli line. Hailing from Shimokitazawa, one of my very favourite corners of Tokyo, this indie rock band is a blend of lush ambient downtempo rock, electronica, hauntingly surreal lyrics, and beautifully delicate, layered vocals. The band is made up of an illustrator, a graphic designer, and a photographer- what a magical mix. Japan Live has a fantastic interview with them here. Meanwhile, I’m digging singer Kana Otsubo’s laidback Shimokitazawa-esque style; Shimokitazawa has a bit of the bite of Tokyo style but without so much of the trendiness; there’s something more thrown together, relaxed, and unique about this part of town. Some of my favourite pieces from my closet are products of many a Shimokitazawa shopping jag (followed of course by waffles at the best waffle cafe in the world- but I digress.)

As for the shimmery lush glow that is Spangle call Lilli line music- take a listen for yourselves.
