Fujiya & Miyagi have been together for 12 years and five albums, but that hasn't diminished their passion for krautrock one bit. An obsession for Can and Kraftwerk can't just vanish overnight, not even with the aid of Thom Monahan, producer of the very non-electronic Pernice Brothers and Vetiver. On Ventriloquizzing, Fujiya & Miyagi's dark, spooky dance tunes are composed with just as much precision as ever. Elegant, thoughtfully constructed, and layered with David Best's menacing, robotic whisper-singing—this is music that seems like it must be taken Very Seriously. That's until you realize the seemingly profound lyrics are completely tongue-in-cheek (right?), e.g., "You go up and go down like a yo-yo" repeated over and over again. REBECCA WILSON
