toe

with starRo and LANDER


toe is a Japanese music group. While mentioned in many post-rock circles, their song structure and dynamics are similar to many popular math rock artists.

toe is composed of Kashikura Takashi on drums, Mino Takaaki on guitar, Yamane Satoshi on bass guitar, and Yamazaki Hirokazu on guitar. Toe has formally played with this line-up since the band’s inception in 2000.

The vast majority of the music is instrumental and features the swift and acute drumming of Takashi. The band is also known for its melodic, clean guitar settings. Additionally, the compositions have repetition from typical rock motifs, but use very subtle changes in beat and rhythm to form a unique sound. The band has changed their sound over their musical tenure by incorporating acoustic guitars, rhodes piano, and vibraphones in their most recent releases.

The band tours regularly in Japan, and can most notably be compared to acts such as Pele and The Album Leaf.



Guitarist, Keyboardist, and Producer. starRo is a solo project of Downtempo, Folktronica, Hip Hop by Shinya Mizoguchi. New EP “Komorebi” came out in February 2011.


Lander is an electr​onic/r​ock persona from Boise, ID. From classical to ultra-​modern. Contractual or just for enjoyment, music is what Lander does.
