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

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

CULTURE REJECT- Breaking With The World - LP - SPECIFIC

click to enlarge Anyone out there into beautifully constructed, wonderfully heartfelt and brilliantly orchestrated singer/songwriter music? Then make sure to check out CULTURE REJECT, the project of singer and multi-instrumentalist Michael O'Connell from Toronto/Canada. Hardly ever heard such intriguing songs since the days of Elliott Smith (or Paul Simon, if you will, and it may also appeal to fans of TV ON THE RADIO or VAMPIRE WEEKEND...).
