Perils of Having Too Much Fun[CD]
Semi-on is a band of five who live, work, and play in Japan. Two Canadians, one British, one Australian, and one local. Formed by chance under a chorus of cicadas. ('Semi' means cicada in Japanese. Who doesn't love cicadas?) At any given moment, you can catch them with an array of instruments within reach: from roots-inspired fiddle, banjo, and mandolin, to funked-up guitar and bass grooviness... melodic clarinet, pianica, xylophone, and fluid beats, all speckled with random bird calls and vocals that entice and devour. Unified by the love of trans-genre music and the spontaneity of the jam. An eclectic bunch. Great energy and fun to watch live.
