Japanese experimental pop group SJQ's new album 'animacy' is a solidly constructed album of cut-up Jazz that is successful in combining pop music sensibilities and the modern vanguard of electronic experimentalism.
All of the songs on [animacy] see the key instruments(piano,guitar,bass,trombone,drums) weaving around a spine of stop-start, experimental electronics, and through this exploring a pastiche of unheard of textures and combinations.
As to not be out done solely by the difficult combination of two seemingly opposing genres, a great deal of the electronics on [animacy] were synthesized via gismo:an artificial life simulation program designed by band reader Yuta Uozumi himself.
An innovative landmark to some, a future lost classic at worst, SJQ is among those laying down the foundations of future music.
