The following is from, Pitchfork Media – Today
Having let the anticipation build to a big shoegazey swell, Asobi Seksu are finally ready to let forth their latest crescendo in the form of Hush, the pedal-happy combo’s previously discussed third long-player. The set, assembled by core band members James Hanna and Yuki Chikudate in the wake of some lineup shakeups, will wash over us February 17 thanks to Polyvinyl.
Hush packs in 12 tracks with such bliss-out-ready titles as “Transparence”, “In the Sky”, and “Glacially”. It also includes the Forkcasted single “Me & Mary”, which, as previously reported, hits 7″ and digital download next week thanks to Polyvinyl in the U.S. and One Little Indian overseas.
Speaking of vinyl, Asobi will finally do us the pleasure of putting sophomore offering Citrus on wax for the first time. Friendly Fire Recordings unloads the set on November 25, and each of the 1,000 copies pressed includes a download code that will get you a couple Asobi Sesku remixes by CSS and Ulrich Schnauss.
For the moment, the Brooklyn band is getting its gear in order for a tour of the UK and Ireland with Ladytron, and a trio of German dates with the Dears just beyond it. If you’ve ever wished you could see the docile-looking lady in the cover art down there go batshit on a drum kit, people, this is your big chance.
