Psychedelic Rock, Experimental, Shoegaze, Electronica (Japan)
Since connecting over music at a sci fi-themed bar (as a laser battle of flamboyant proportions ensued wildly around) in a small city 100 km north of Tokyo over 10 years ago, a creative partnership developed in the form of Glaze of Cathexis. The music is psychedelic rock that has overtones of shoegaze and electronic. Influences include Syd Barrett, My Bloody Valentine, and Guided By Voices. The group is made up of Matthew Comegys (ex-Atlanta, USA) and Scott Atkinson (ex-Brisbane, Australia), who both derive their unique creative inspiration and resonance from dwelling in Japan. Make sure to check out their work as the Electrick Sages as well, where they air out their love of funk, soul, and Bowie in an art rock setting.
