In one ear and out the other
Normally I am not one of those people who dwells on past years of album releases and shows but 2007 was so good it is hard to recover and not remember the past seasons. One of the most enjoyable show(s) and bands to watch grow throughout the year was Fujiya and Miyagi. Coaxed into attending their Mercury Lounge show on a Sunday night (basically to see the Prototypes who cancelled at the last minute) I danced my socks off like it was a Thursday or Friday night. Hits tracks Collarbone and Ankle Injuries became daily tracks harassing the ears of my friends and co-workers to the point that by the time they played South Street Seaport they were well known and loved. With announcements for the fall and winter already accumulating on the calendar be sure to mark September 16th as the day to gather their sophomore release, Lightbulbs. The follow up to Transparent Things not only will showcase new material but also a new band member!
