sgt. - stylus fantasticus
album: stylus fantasticus
"Formed in 1999, the Japanese four-piece sgt. utilizes a broad range of genres to create their distinctive sound, including that of post-rock, jazz, ambient and improvisation. Using a guitar, violin, drums and bass guitar, the band creates uplifting instrumental compositions comparable to such acts as Toe or Anoice."
Sgt. are a fabulous little band from Japan who make instrumental music which varies from Caspian-like epic (p.s. listen to Caspian) to an almost Ozric Tentaclesian jam, but with more focus and less rave drugs
