We're From Japan biography
Post-rock quartet from Oregon, USA was founded in 2003. After few years of musicianship and two EP released ( " TO TELESCOPE ", 2003,self-released and " YOU ARE THE VEHICLE ", 2004, split release with ANDI CAMP), they got a contract with Japanese (!) label Zankyo Records.

Playing competent, but not very memorable post rock, influenced by EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY and GYBE, didn't bring them a big success. So, they just dropped piano and strings! This action let them get more energetic guitar sound (they add one more guitar), music became more aggressive. After two studio albums ( " 48 MINUTES,07 SECONDS,THEN THE OPEN AIR ",2005 and " NOW BREATHE ", 2008, both on Zankyo Records) , the band fell down to the period of limited activity.

— First review of this album —
3 stars This is debut self-released EP of US post rock band "We're From Japan". Didn't find too much information about their name....

German Tennis Professionals (7:47) is airy and even fragile musical composition, based on acoustic strings and interesting drumming ( with some allusions to tennis ball sound). In a frames of post-rock concept though. At the song's end some heavier guitar sound adds a bit more energy.

To Telescope (10:09) is down tempo dreamy composition with nice violin strings touches. Strong side of this composition is elegant drumming added to light, but full-bodied sound. Not characteristic guitars sound, but more keys and strings, fresh and pleasant music.

Not The Thief, But His Brother (9:15) starts with guitar sound, this song is mostly guitar and drums all around (even including few controlled guitar sound explosions).

Last debut's song His Face In The Floor And One Eye Open is a faceless standard guitar based post-rock. After few minutes of silence there is a one more track (in fact just a drone).

Not a bad debut, mostly interested because of slightly jazzy drumming and aerial atmosphere in some moments.

Thanks to snobb for the artist addition.
