I was thinking about writing a really lame pun as a title for this post (“Buzz LITEyear” was at the top of my list), but then I changed my mind because that would’ve been fucking stupid. So I’ll write about LITE instead: they’re a Japanese math rock band formed in 2003, and they’ve recently released a new mini-LP, Past, Present, Future, which you can find out there if you google it enough. “Bond” is its first single, a nice and funky track you can listen to in the video above. And now that I wrote about them like Henrique (who is the guitarist for an equally great band) asked me to in the hopes someone would bring them to Portugal, I can finally have a rest from a pretty hectic week. Also, Henrique, you guys still owe me pizza.
