UP-Tight LP st

Up-Tight LP s/t Desastre records

Nice re-release of their first album recorded in 2001

LP, 300 copies black vinyl.

UP-TIGHT are a noxious trio from Japan leaded by Tomoyuki Aoki, ghost of Les Rallizes Dénudés, who augment their sound with crushing, Sabbath-styled dynamics, earsplitting acid leads and beautiful Velvets-inspired ballads. Just when you thought you’d got to grips with Tokyo’s paradigm destroying psych scene, this one hits like a sucker punch.

Otaco

Otaco cassette “Yoru wa kyabetsu hatake” Self Release

Otaco is an idiosyncratic singer-songwriter cum performance artist playing toy keyboards, guitar  who was born in Hokkaido and she belongs  belong to the same informal Sapporo underground network of intuitive, inventive and often funny young musicians, improvisors and video makers as Aoi Swimming , Cup & Saucers and Shimettainu, with legendary drummer Ikuro Takahashi acting as spirit guide. Her songs are very lo fi (synth, guitar, loops, rythmbox…) but believe  me she’s already  a princess and will warm up your heart if you have attention.

À Qui Avec Gabriel | Tori Kudo 10 inch LP

À Qui Avec Gabriel | Tori Kudo 10 inch LP  情趣演歌 [Enka Mood Collection]

Split 10′ LP ltd to 210, comes in a silkscreened gatefold cover with  colored obi (white brick red, yellow-orange), insert + postcards…

Liner notes by Alan Cummings

Second in the enka collection series on An’archives after Jojo Hiroshige & Shiraishi Tamio,  this split LP features

À Qui Avec Gabriel  and Tori Kudo

À  Qui Avec Gabriel is an accordion player based in Tokyo who opened her discography with  “Utsuho” on John Zorn’s label Tzadik in 2001 ( featuring Haino Keiji as a guest musician) . Since she has collaborated with Makoto Kawabata, Majutsu No Niwa, Mico  to name a few. Her stylistic palette is eclectic, drawing on shades of jaunty european folk music, the elegant minimalism of Erik Satie, and uniquely lighthearted melancholia.

Here for the first time on record she left her accordion Gabriel  for a piano and a seat and proves she’s found  her own voice as an expressive singer.

The other side features Tori Kudo (Maher Shalal Hash Baz and Noise with his wife Reiko Kudo)   who has  a revered status in the Japanese underground  since the late 70’s (Taco, Guys N’ Dolls,  Fushitsusha…) but this time he brings  listeners into the heart of an amazing and feverish karaoke house with his friends . For those who didn’t know it before,  maybe for  the very first time they are going to discover  Tori Kudo as an inimitable & unforgettable crooner, as a true lover of popular songs.

Mamitori Ulithi Empress Yonaguni San LP 25/12/2013  Bruit Direct disques

Live album by Japanese group Ulithi Empress Yonaguni San, savagely DIY and autonomous, Mamitori have to this day released only a handful of copies of a privately pressed record, while lead guitarist Aritomo has put out an abundance of self-produced acid-folk records for which he carefully assembles every sleeve by hand. The album ”1 2 3 Fairy TailChimidoro Phenomenon Satan Inferno Dress ha CattlemurareteYggdrasillHaWaSasaru” was immediately noted by David Keenan who compared it to “Isn’t Anything being creepy-crawled by Idiot O’Clock or the early Rough Trade singles as curated by Jutok Kaneko and Reiko Kudo.” Members are : Tadasuke Iwanaga : Vocal, Guitar / Kenji Itagaki : Drums / Aritomo : Guitar, 12 string guitar / Shingo Nakata : Bass /
Ai Tsuchikawa : Guitar.
