This, for example, is from Tricot, a fascinating all-female math-rock-ish indie band from Japan.

    The drummer is actually a dude. However, they are a 3/4 female band…….and a good one at that.

    They may be coming to Canada as part of a future Next Music From Tokyo tour in 2014. Most likely in October.
