I came across the music of Clams last week, an Osaka, Japan based band that released a couple of albums in the early 2000’s, though I don’t think they’ve done anything recently. The band is made up of three people, Asami Clam, Hisashi Clam and Takayuki Clam, and together they make some nice ambient, droning kind of shoe gaze-y pop. They site their influences as Flaming Lips, Yo La Tengo and My Bloody Valentine, which you can definitely hear. If you can find their albums I definitely suggest it, I’ve been enjoying their self titled album Clams and Sakura River.
