Best known in the US for their accompaniment to Nintendo Wii commercials, these shamisen-wielding brothers present an active homage to traditional Japanese music. Much more so than previous releases, Prism is greatly infused with other styles, tapping rock, folk, neoclassical, film scores, and more in collaboration with great guest musicians.
The disc opens with a bouncing rendition of “The National Anthem” by Radiohead, setting an energetic tone for an album that gracefully bobs and weaves. If you’re looking for a great introduction to the brothers’ catalog, pick this up.
