Another release which I never added until today: Mumm-Ra's Technicolour which was a digital single, released in April 2013 through good old BandCamp.
2014-02-02 – 15:44hr GMT
Automatic Writing released their first debut EP digitally last year November called Introduction To Floating. I however never added it to the website until today.

We can expect a new digital EP from Lovelife as of February 4th. You can check the details and the artwork over here! The EP will be called Feel and is going to feature four recordings.

Here we go, the first update for 2014 which is for Lovelife. I've made scans of their latest 10" EP called Stateless tonight including the regular (but limited) commercial release plus a white label test pressing (probably limited to 5 copies). Enjoy!

It's been almost two months since the last update. Life's been busy and sometimes I was just lazy. I will kick off the New Year with a nice photo of a 12" that was released last month. Updates of featured artists will follow in the next few weeks including Lovelife, Vile Electrodes, Automatic Writing, Mumm-Ra and The Darkness.

Two miscellaneous releases for Lovelife tonight! The first one was a CD EP issued in April this year called MMXIII and was for sale during a short US tour. The second release was released only one month later on lovely vinyl, being a split 7" with The Neighbourhood with the tracks West Coast/Every Minute.

宇宙戦隊NOIZ released their latest single called ライカ two days ago in Japan which is the last single of their five month single campaign. The best was probably kept for last since this is arguably the best of the five singles. It once again comes as two different editions, each one containing a DVD. The big question now is: what's next? Can we maybe expect an album anytime soon?

I already got this item somewhere last week, but didn't felt like scanning and updating the website until now. This is a promotional CD copy of Lovelife's latest EP Stateless. Besides the unique radio edit that can be found on the disc it also comes in a slightly alternate sleeve!

The fourth single in a serie of five was released on the 9th of October by 宇宙戦隊NOIZ. This new single is called One Order and there are once again two different editions with different artwork and different contents on each DVD. It also seems that the Japanese shop Brand X is giving away a unique (hand-made) DVD with each order which features a short message by the band.

In case you missed it: Lovelife issued a new EP last week Monday called Stateless. You can buy the digital release right now but need to wait another five weeks before the 10" vinyl disc is released. Until then you can read all the details here about this new release, including info about a promotional copy and the initial, scrapped, release!

In case you didn't know yet... Vile Electrodes released their debut album after it's been in the making for nearly 100 years! Aptly called The Future Through A Lens, it is a stunning debut, making you want to hit the play button over and over again. The album comes as four different editions: digital, CD and two different deluxe CD editions. Check the album page for all the details. A fun fact is that the digital and CD release are different!

You can never get enough 宇宙戦隊NOIZ, so I'm happy to present two new additions to the website which are two concert-only CDr's, both being from 2002. The first one is CROSS which was issued in August and contains two unreleased recordings. The second disc is called room and was released in September. This song was released nine months earlier on another CDr which turns out to be a completely different recording. Check the details and scans right here!

We all love Mirrors so I am happy that I found a copy of this promotional CDr from Greece which features the 2010 Hamburg performance when they were the support act for OMD. Only 25 copies were apparently made.

宇宙戦隊NOIZ released their third new single yesterday in Japan called コロナ (Corona). It was once again released as two different editions, each one containing a different sleeve and different contents on the DVD. A funny fact that I discovered earlier today while going through the credits: it appears that each band member has written one of the new tracks and it is very likely that the remaining two singles have been written by KYO and Angel-TAKA. PRECOG was written by MASATO, パラレルマインド by KOTARO and コロナ by YAMATO. Maybe the newly recorded song on each single is a favourite of each member who wrote the main track on the single?
2013-08-24 – 10:26hr GMT
宇宙戦隊NOIZ released a new single last Wednesday in Japan called パラレルマインド (aka PARALLEL MIND). It features a new and a re-recorded track like the previous single plus two instrumental versions. You can now view the full details plus the artwork. I also added information for the single that will be released next month which will be called コロナ (aka CORONA).

It took a while, but I finally bought メトロノーム's mini-album LIFO about a week or so ago and it arrived earlier this week. Scans have been added today which means that high quality scans are now available for all of their albums! Next stop: their singles (if I ever find the time and, more importantly, the money!). Have a nice weekend!
2013-08-13 – 18:51hr GMT
It took one month to cross the big pond, but I finally received Lovelife's first single today called Your New Beloved / Dying To Start Again and yes, it is a double A-side (how old-fashioned!). It was issued in June in the US this year. We can expect a new EP this Autumn.
2013-08-13 – 18:04hr GMT
I only heard about the following item about 2 months ago. Until then I did not even know it existed. Today I got a package which contained this release called バトルカプセルから愛を込めて <ALLEX RECORDS通販予約特典CDR> by 宇宙戦隊NOIZ, released in 2004. It contains an hour of discussions by the band, probably about this single and more.
2013-08-04 – 09:43hr GMT
I was finally able to find a copy of 宇宙戦隊NOIZ's 2006 re-issue サイボーグロックショウ完全盤 for a good price. As you can see it comes with a completely different sleeve!
2013-07-19 – 07:47hr GMT
While surfing the web yesterday evening I stumbled upon another release by 宇宙戦隊NOIZ which was released with very little promotion and was a digital only release. The title is 稲妻VICTORY, was issued last month and does not even come with proper artwork.
