Dustin Wong and Takako Minekawa are artistic omnivores, soaking up a myriad of cultural artifacts and styles, savoring bits and pieces and recontexutalizing them into entirely delightful and playfully intricate songs. Their songs are imbued with a relentless cheerfulness that belies their technicality, steeped in the history of Japanese pop music and exuding the joy of discovery and exploration. Wong and Minekawa are serious musicians not afraid to play it silly. Their music is vibrant pop, laced with the sounds of video games, radiophonic experiments, and indigenous music from around the world.
Their latest collaboration, 'Savage Imagination,' was recorded at home by Takako and Dustin: "We both hit the record button for each other." Dustin was introduced to the world as a member of Ponytail, and has spent the past several years making incredibly deep and complex albums of looped solo electric guitar for Thrill Jockey. Takako Minekawa first rose to international prominence as a Shibuya-kei singer in the mid-90s with the song "Fantastic Cat" and her albums 'Roomic Cube' and 'Cloudy Cloud Calculator.' She has collaborated with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Cornelius, Buffalo Daughter, Dymaxion, and others.
