Acid To My Alkaline - Fujiya & Miyagi

from the album Artificial Sweeteners (2014)

I was recently binge watching Season One of Breaking Bad.  Somewhere around mid-season, I heard a song that completely blew me away.  I raced for my phone, opened Shazam, and soon learned that the song was Uh by the British electronic outfit Fujiya & Miyagi.

I digged this tune so much that I paused the marathon and started scouring the web for more.  Songs like Collarbone also blew me away.  Then I started looking for any 2014 releases.  I soon discovered the album Artificial Sweeteners.  The most popular song on the album is Vagaries Of Fashion, which I immediately downloaded.

However, there was one track title that fascinated me:  Acid To My Alkaline.  I had to hear this song.  I was wondering if I would feel neutral about it.  Fortunately, it left me saying "what the pH..."!

This song offers a great electric guitar track that offers a funk reminiscent of Talking Heads or The Bush Tetras.  The song also contains cool retro synthesizers and beats.  Further exciting my ear buds are the semi-spoken vocals that somehow remind me of INXS.

Be sure to check out this band's full catalogue.  It is loaded with great stuff.
