LITE follow their stunning debut album Filmlets with three new compositions including the live favourite "Tomorrow".
Funanori is a collaboration between Kaori Tsuchida (The Go! Team) and Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE, Stooges). Based around the sanshin, a traditional Okinawan three-stringed instrument, often likened to a banjo. Its haunting tone pervades the three tracks on their debut release where funk rhythms and Beefheart-esque complexity collide. Featuring guest appearances from drummer Stephen Perkins of Jane’s Addiction and Porno For Pyros and saxophonist Chris Watling of The Grandsons.
