“rhythm-centered, electronic-hybrid rock with a post-punk influence.. Led by a skittering martial beat and pulsing electronic bass lines..” – Jacob Webb, KEXP 90.3FM

“It’s a masterly collection of cloud-strafing songs with curvaceous, sigh-inducing melodies swathed in blurred-magenta guitar textures. The group’s craftily dramatic dynamics keep things varied and the use of effects is deft and trippy.” – Dave Segal, The Stranger

“Their experimentation with shoegaze/pop/alternative rock spins routine categorizations through the blender. What plops out on the other end is not found in nature, certainly. But neither does the music hail exclusively from the deep regions of space. Tokyoidaho’s ability to bridge melody and weird aural delights deserves notice.” – The Deli Magazine

BNC / DLE, 10 Jun

We’ve got Black Nite Crash playing at LoFi Seattle Friday night 10th June with The Figgs, a classic example of a band good enough that the major label they’re on doesn’t know what to do with them, so the band counts on viewers like YOU to know better than the suits. Check’m out. Speaking of viewers, check the flier… and add yourself to the event:

Special show 7th June at Lofi Seattle: Tokyoidaho with The Stargazer Lilies and Retirement

NEON SIGH PRESENTS THE STARGAZER LILIES, TOKYOIDAHO, DJ RETINA BURN 7 JUN 2016

Tues 7th June 2016 –

The Stargazer Lilies
Tokyoidaho
Retirement
DJ Retina Burn
at
LOFI Seattle
9pm

Here’s what The Stranger is saying about The Stargazer Lilies coming back to town –

“The Stargazer Lilies create textbook shoegaze rock that transports you to that idyllic mauve miasma that enveloped us in the early 1990s. Everything in their music is hazy and blurry and opiated and you can’t discern a dad-blasted lyric, but it doesn’t matter because you’re too busy swooning to and floating on the wispy bliss cloud composed of reverbed and chorused guitars and Kim Field’s distant, dulcet vocals. It’s sort of like Slowdive, Cocteau Twins, and My Bloody Valentine had a threesome and out popped We Are the Dreamers, Stargazer Lilies’ panoramically beautiful 2013 debut LP. It’s hard to imagine that the new Door to the Sun—of which I’ve heard only snippets—won’t be similarly enchanting.” — DAVE SEGAL (The Stranger)
