Asparagus are a Japanese indie rock power trio. Debuted 2002. Their sound is a mix of 9mm Parabellum Bullet's intense, unrelenting rock and Base Ball Bear's more upbeat, danceable style. Overall they're very bright and clean, with positive sounding melodies and feel-good vibes. Yet their music has much more of an edge than, say, Straightener, though they have a very similar sound. Their production is very clear, yet they're not afraid to let things get loud and overdriven from time to time.
