Music Music: New Releases

2 Great Japanese Releases

There are two great new Japanese releases to highlight this month (keep in mind they have only been released in Japan so you will have to pay import prices or wait for the US release):

2761984 - 2 Great Japanese Releases

Shugo Tokumaru – Port Entropy What can I say, I have been really stoked for this release and it lives up to everything I love about Shugo’s music.  Rich textures, exciting themes.  I would track this one done if you are will to spend the cash.  I hope to get to a full review of this record over the weekend.  Early favorite is “Lahaha”

51Te9UvRn4L. SL500 - 2 Great Japanese Releases

All Kinds of People – Love Burt Bacharach A tribute to Burt Bacharach produced by Jim O’Rourke, this is a no brainer for me.  Jim also makes 2 appearances on the album as well as a track from Glenn Kotche and Thurston Moore! The trick is that it is currently a Japanese only release and I don’t have high hopes of seeing it state side.  But hunt it down it is a solid listen.  You can listen to samples here (click on the link within the page which takes you to another Japanese page where you can check out clips)
