First part of an A-Z of great artists and bands you may not have heard of;

Asobi Seksu :: Japanese blur of distortion and sweetness
[see My Bloody Valentine and the Other Two]

Blue Orchids :: lost Manchester classics
[see Inspiral Carpets and The Fall]

Camille :: French vocalist to twist your insides
[see Nouvelle Vague and Bjork]

The band Mason Proper have an idea worthy of Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies. The result is really fresh, and stands as a reminder to always record your first take.
