Formed in 1999, the Japanese four-piece sgt. utilizes a broad range of genres to create their distinctive sound, including that of post-rock, jazz, ambient and improvisation. Using a guitar, violin, drums and bass guitar, the band creates uplifting instrumental compositions comparable to such acts as Toe or Anoice. sgt. released their debut mini album “Perception of Causality” in November 2005, followed by a split recording with good music! the following year.
This is the sgt.'s new full lengthed Album since "perception of causality"(2005/11released).
This gem 8 songs are compilations of 1st phase of sgt. and also brews new dimensions.
General idea of "instrumental/post rock" has broken by them, and they draws the "Illusionable World that contains the Reality and the Un-reality".
On this album, taking in a keyboard and a saxophone boldly.
