Lite – Filmlets

This Japanese instrumental band must take great notes whenever they listen to music. Lite blend the pioneering math-driven intensity of Don Caballero with the arpeggiated style of Tristeza and the force of Pelican. What’s scary is that in many ways, they do it better. Clean guitars dance around on epic melodies while the bass and drums push the songs forward and prevent them from going stale. Lite’s songs are at the same time coldly calculated, and emotionally driven. Filmlets is an album that will stay in your CD player for weeks on repeat, and never get old.
