Noch Besser Leben
Merseburger Str. 25, 04229 Leipzig
Taking their name from 1962 French film Les Dimanches de Ville d'Avray, Sundays & Cybele are a Japanese psychedelic rock band who were founded in 2004 by guitarist/vocalist Kazuo Tsubouchi. Initially based in Hokkaido, they subsequently relocated to Tokyo, and a revolving cast of musicians have passed through the band. While their music contains loud, distorted guitars, they're nowhere near as heavy as bands like Acid Mothers Temple, instead preferring a brighter, more atmospheric sound which draws from Krautrock, dub, folk-rock, and guitar heroes like Carlos Santana. Cosmic and generally optimistic, their music occasionally has a touch of melancholy and loneliness to it.
