Asobi Seksu (which means “playful sex” in Japanese), played their first ever acoustic set last night, September 16, 2009, at Joe’s Pub in New York City.  Asobi Seksu uses textured vocals and heavy effects with guitars to make amazing ethereal music.  Lead singer Yuki Chikudate’s voice is so smooth, you’ll want to turn off all the lights, put some candles on and drift into heaven.  A few fun facts:  Their self-titled debut album was released on Bjork’s One Little Indian label and their music has been featured on The L Word.  Yuki Chikudate told very funny stories in between songs, including one where she was tripping on mushrooms when she encountered a dying bird.  After trying desperately to save the poor creature, the only option was to drive over it with her car.  Perhaps you had to be there.

See some more pictures and the setlist after the jump.
