Los Angeles based dreamy trio Tashaki Miyaki are pleased to share the second track from their latest release The limited edition colored vinyl will be available on their own vinyl imprint, Blonde Dog Records, as the soundtrack to a collaboration with director Juan Iglesias today, February 25, 2014. To celebrate the release, Tashaki Miyaki are making the B-side, “There Was a Light,” a Chris Bell cover. Singer and drummer Lucy Miyaki explains about the track: “It’s a song I loved from the first listen and wanted to share. Chris Bell’s music is dear to me. The lyrics break my heart in the best way.”
Los Angeles based Tashaki Miyaki was born out of a late night jam between Lucy and Rocky in early 2011. Shortly after they started making recordings as a duo with friend and producer/engineer Joel Jerome (Dios, Babies on Acid). After posting a couple songs on bandcamp there was sudden response from bloggers and business types alike. Realizing they needed to fill out their live sound, they asked friend and bassist Dora Hiller to join. Since then they have recorded a self titled EP, a single (Best Friend, Luvluvluv Records), a 7″ of Everly Brothers Covers (Rough Trade’s For Us Records), a tape of all their early recordings on Burger Records, as well as toured North America and the UK. They are currently in the midst of recording their debut full length.
