Improvisational drone-pop orchestra Japancakes was the brainchild of Athens, GA-based musician Eric Berg, who in 1997 had the thought of organizing several ten musicians to consider the stage without the prior rehearsals all with regard to playing an individual “D” chord for 45 short minutes. Fascinated with the subtle adjustments and flaws which textured the functionality, Berg started mounting other tests within an identical conceptual framework; however the onstage lineup frequently expanded to as much as twelve instrumentalists, various other constants included Nick Bielli, Todd Kelly, Heather McIntosh, John Neff, and Scott Sosebee. The debut Japancakes record, EASILY Could Find Dallas, implemented on Kindercore in the fall of 1999; an EP, Down the Components, made an appearance in the springtime, as well as the sophomore work Sleepy Unusual was released in early 2001. Darla relased Belmondo the next calendar year, and Waking Hours appeared two years down the road the Warm imprint. Japancakes turned back again to Darla because of their two 2007 albums, a cover of My Bloody Valentine’s traditional record Loveless and an record of original materials, Giving Devices, which both appeared that fall.
