You Should Check Out ... ESP's Japan Tour Photo Diary

Welcome to You Should Check Out..., a new weekly blog in which Chris Black of Words For Young Men and Done to Death Projects tells you about something or someone he really likes and that he thinks you'll like too. Follow him on Twitter at @donetodeath.

ESP is a Los Angeles based classically trained trio composed of brother/sister Aska and Seiya Matsumiya and friend Bobby Evans. (Aska was featured in Paper's 25th anniversary issue in 2009.) They describe their music as "synesthetic, synth-laden dreamscapes, literally popping with hypercolored visuals, this is ESP, the sights, sounds and sensory overload of the West Coast cosmos." They have released two slightly trippy, excellent EPs and a split 10" with UFO2012 on OHWOW . The crew recently completed a big tour of Japan and sent me photos of the madness to share with the masses.
