14:13- s/t - LP - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge French collective from Metz, comprised of members of AUSTRASIAN GOAT and STRONG AS TEN. Contains 6 extensively long tracks (with playing-times around 6 minutes) of tribal occult music. The 3 tracks on side A have a psychedelic and spacey Prog-Rock feeling (like HAWKWIND meets CAN) paired with an intense sound and heavy rhythms - while the 3 tracks on side B have more of tribal and industrial sounding appeal, in the vein of SAVAGE REPUBLIC, and with nods to sounds of SONIC YOUTH... LP including download-code. http://specific.bandcamp.com

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

BRUTE MINOU- s/t - n/a - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge Limited 180g one-sided black vinyl (8 songs) with laser-etching on the backside! Debut release by these (self-described) "punk cats" from Metz/France. Raging Riot Grrl Punk meets French YéYé Pop vibes. Superbly cool and catchy, and with a sense of humour! https://specific.bandcamp.com/album/brute-minou

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)

RAYMONDE HOWARD- S.W.E.A.T. - LP - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge New album by French musician (singing in English) with 11 songs of really cool Minimal-Pop pearls. For fans of JULIE RUIN, CATE LE BON, BLONDE REDHEAD or PJ HARVEY, and yes, she's really that good! Some of her songs made me think of TWO TON BOA (if anyone can remember this great band on KILL ROCK STARS from around 10 years ago) or like "AIR MIAMI with female vocals".
Limited edition one-sided vinyl, with laser etchings on backside. https://specific.bandcamp.com/album/s-w-e-a-t
