Hailing from Tokyo, Mouse On The Keys are an instrumental post-rock electronic jazz trio formed in 2006 and consisting of Akira Kawasaki (drum, keyboards), Atsushi Kiyota (piano, keyboards) and Daisuke Niitome (piano, keyboards).
They have just announced the release of a new EP called Machinic Phylum, due out on July 18th via Machu Picchu Industrias. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for new tracks and more info about this.
If you haven’t yet savoured their music, here’s a couple of stunning tracks to blow you away, ‘Spectres De Mouse’ off 2009’s An Anxious Object and ‘Saigo No Basan’, off 2007’s Sezession. Both albums were released via Machu Pichu Industrias in Japan and Denovali in the rest of the world. Enjoy.
