Fujiya & Miyagi

★★★ Im­pos­si­ble Ob­jects Of De­sire All mu­sic fans have pet groups who, to their puz­zle­ment, are not as well known or suc­cess­ful as they think they should be. With ev­ery pass­ing re­lease one in­deed has to won­der when the Brighton elec­tropop trio Fujiya & Miyagi will re­ceive their right­ful dues. Their sixth al­bum com­bines two EPs from 2016 with some re­cently re­leased tracks yet is co­her­ent and fresh for all that. The band have al­ways found new kinks and plea­sure points in the Krautrock grooves they favour, and the ma­te­rial here shows they’ve still got that knack. David Best’s vo­cals re­main a mag­netic pull (es­pe­cially on Ex­tended

Dance Mix), but it’s the way in which tracks such as Sero­tonin Rushes, Syn­thetic Symphonies and RSI stamp their rhythms on your synapses that re­ally makes this al­bum make the cut. Could their time be just around the cor­ner? fujiya-miyagi.co.uk
