ADELIANS- s/t - LP - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge French band resp. orchestra, complete with a horns-section and fronted by a female singer, playing SOUL music! Rooted in the styles of classic 60's/70's R&B and Soul, but delivered with the energy of Punk. The LP contains 11 stompers, including cover-versions of Rihanna's "Stay" and the 60's classic "There's A Kind Of Hush". http://specific.bandcamp.com/album/the-adelians-2

BISKAIDAN- 2 - LP - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge Strictly limited edition of 500 copies as one-sided pressing with 7 songs, and graphics on the vinyl-backside. 2nd collaboration of Japanese Noise band HIJOKAIDAN with "Aidoru" (aka "Idol") J-Pop girl-group BiS. What could be said about the first LP (which is totally sold-out by now!), can be said about this one as well: An unlikely combination of totally distorted guitars and noises, gut-wrenching screaming with angelic singing and J-pop song-structures. So BISKAIDAN can be called the first and only and full-on raging "Idol-Noise" band. http://specific.bandcamp.com/album/bis-kaidan-2

CHARAN PO RANTAN- Rose Balkan - n/a - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge Once more a totally outstanding and fascinating thing from Japan on Specific Records: CHARAN PO RANTAN is the sisters duo Momo (vocals) and Koharu (accordion, vocals), fusing J-Pop with Balkan-style Turbo-Folk, Klezmer and Cabaret fun. Musically like GOGOL BORDELLO, but a Japanese girl-group performing these exuberant gypsy vibes! Limited edition of 500 copies on pink vinyl, and not only with a download-code, but the CD-version of the album included as well! https://specific.bandcamp.com/album/rose-balkan

CHARISMA.COM- Ai Ai Syndrome - LP - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge Japanese female duo, Itsuka on vocals and Gonchi as DJ, with their debut-album, featuring 8 tracks of filthy Electro-Rap, powered with fat beats. Accordingly to the label they hate Japanese society, so maybe the girls got more in common with the SLEAFORD MODS than just the line-up... But musically their furious Electro-Pop reminds more of the acts like MIA, PEACHES or the CHICKS ON SPEED. http://specific.bandcamp.com/album/charisma-com-ai-ai-syndrome

HATSUNEKAIDAN- Noisy Killer - LP - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge Another project from Japans Noise legend HIJOKAIDAN, here with the "vocaloid" Hatsune Miko. Not an actual person, but a specially developed synthetic voice-program for the Anime character Hatsune Miko, immensely propular in Japan, and the world's first and biggest purely virtual Popstar! (For live-performances of HATSUNEKAIDAN the Hatsune Miko avatar is embodied by the cosplay-girl Le Chat)

NECRONOMIDOL- Nemesis - LP - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge Another crazy bizarre thing from Japan released on SPECIFIC: Here's 5 girls mixing the J-Pop idol thing with elements of black metal and dark wave sounds. Limited edition of 500 copies, with 11 songs on vinyl. https://specific.bandcamp.com/album/nemesis

TOKYOKARANKORON- Go Nin No Entertainer - LP - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge A band from Japan, with a joyful mix of 60s-Beat styles, New Wave sounds, dreamy Girl-Pop, and progressive Math-Rock breaks, all thru’ a unique Japanese blender. 12 tracks, sometimes reminding of british bands like TV PERSONALITIES or THE TIMES, but interpreted with a BOREDOMS or MELT-BANANA like vision... Maybe also comparable to the english GO! TEAM, but put into a J-Pop way. http://specific.bandcamp.com/album/tokyo-karan-koron-go-nin-no-entertainers

New Release! TOTAL VICTORY- English Martyrs - LP - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge ***Available on June 03***
New album (9 songs) by this outstandingly brilliant Post-Punk band from Manchester/UK. Their meanwhile 4th album, and their most sensitive and heartfelt to date. Generally with a more gentle and softer sound than on their previous album, but still as tense and exhilarating as before! Makes me always feel uncomfortable when trying to compare such an exceptional album with the music of others, but here's nonetheless: For fans of WIRE, THE EX, MEKONS, THE SOUND or PULP... https://totalvictory.bandcamp.com/

TOTAL VICTORY- vs. Big Electric - LP - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge Absolutely great Post-Punk/Alternative Rock from Manchester/UK. Probably one of the best Post-Punk bands from England since WIRE... And yes, soundwise there are similarities to WIRE, but not just as copying their style, more like in their approach and what comes out of it. You may find as well references to bands like THE SOUND here, and for some obscure reasons I tend to feel as well affinities to bands like THE EX and the MEKONS... This LP is a compilation of tracks previously released as limited edition tour-CDEPs, plus 2 unreleased songs, all for the first time ever on vinyl. 10 tracks in full. TOTAL WINNER! http://specific.bandcamp.com/album/total-victory-vs-big-electric
