Mirai Kawashima and Sigh have been pushing, dare I say, smashing the paradigms within metal for decades. From their early days on Euronymous' Deathlike Silence Productions to their most recent album "Heir to Despair," Sigh has found comfort in the dark seeping underbelly of music.
I asked Mirai to provide some music to share with my cohort Don Anderson. Music that has intrigued him, confused him, provoked him or perhaps inspired him over the years. He gave me a bounty of music from Jazz, to Metal, to Traditional Asian and beyond.
Join Don and I as we digest this heaping plate of broken guitar chords and squealing horns. Along with Mirai's song choices we discuss Portland record shopping, Primus, improvisation and poor performances.
"I Hate Music" theme by Marius Sjoli performed by Billy Smeer.
Closing music "Aletheia" by Sigh.
