Former Ponytail guitarist Dustin Wong moved back to his childhood home of Japan after completing his trilogy of loop-based albums and began collaborating with musician Takako Minekawa. Using a specially designed interface that allows them to switch from guitar to keyboards to sampler to vocals, their music is creative and playful. The duo's second album together, Savage Imagination, came out via Thrill Jockey in September. You can check out the video for "She He See Feel" below and stream the whole thing via Spotify.

Wong & Minekawa are on tour in North America, and will play two shows in NYC: November 14 at Palisades with Ricky Eat Acid, Tristan Allen and Trabajo; and November 15 at Cake Shop with Fascinator and Noah Klein. You can get advance tickets to the Palisades show. All dates are listed, along with the video, below...
