Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! This week on the show I’m featuring the LA-trio Tashaki Miyaki, a dreamy psychedelic lo-fi experience brought to you by Lucy (drums), Rocky (guitar), and Dora (bass).

I got a chance to talk with principal songwriter and drummer Lucy. She shares some of her experiences writing music for the band, why it’s so hard to find a good drummer, anonymity, and driving across the UK with Norman Cook. But enough words, tune in to hear songs from Tashaki Miyaki’s 2014 EP Cool Runnings along with tracks from their self titled EP.
Don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on Tashaki Miyaki!
