Before my encounter with Mouse on the Keys, I never had a chance to listen to any music from Japan. Mouse on the Keys is a trio of two pianists/keyboardists and an incredibly talented drummer. They do instrumental music in a very unique style. It is a mix of jazz, and… something else that I am not sure how to describe. I haven’t heard something that musically interesting in a long time. It is elaborated music but still very emotional. They have an EP and an album, An Anxious Object, which was released in 2009.
