My Brilliant Brother

alias pail

has been a solo project of bedroom recordings, lo-fi antics, tricking friends and roomates over the years to record. original influences came from lo-fi pop and twee pop, biggest idols being the pastels and jesus and mary chain. there is also a small element of folk in the songs, derived from artists such as woody guthrie and simon and garfunkel. alias pail is now pursuing sounds more into fragmented pop, electronica, and experimental music.

alias pail's current project has been recording original songs in japanese for a split CD with my pal foot foot, one of alias pail's favorite japanese underground bands. my pal foot foot is signed to majijick records and also run their own label, shukaak-haaksu records. the project serves as a study assignment in japanese (alias pail's favorite second language) and also to feed the fanship of the overwhelming influence of japanese underground music that plays a big part in alias pail now. artists such as nikaidoh kazumi, tenniscoats, maher shalal hash baz, and nagisa ni te all voice the similiar amateur and earnest approach to pop music that alias pail enjoys. a music video for "dollboy" is currently in production. the intent is to promo the video and japanese songs in the summer. alias pail then shall develop a laptop, loop based live sets for performances in the late summer.
