The Pretty, Ethereal Music of ASKA – Free Download This Month Only
My friend Aska stays busy. A classically-trained pianist, Aska spent much of her youth elbow deep in Bach and Mozart. That is, until she discovered the band Can in high school, shifted her outlook, and put her piano-playing fingers to use as keyboardist for indie-punk band Your Enemies Friends. These days, the Japanese-born musician is a member of a few musical outfits, including The Sads (with Aaron Rose and David Scott Stone), and the Los Angeles Ladies Choir (which she co-founded with Becky Stark). As if that wasn’t enough, she has embarked on a solo career, embracing her love of the ethereal and creating the kind of cosmic, gossamer music she loves. She recently collaborated with Flea and Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the music for Spike Jonze’s short-film “I’m Here: Love in an Absolut World,” which features the bewitching track “There Are Many Of Us.”
Her solo EP is available as a FREE download for this month only. You can get it HERE.
