light in the attic


Released: 20th Oct 2017


very limited deluxe 2lp

Released: 20th Oct 2017


This is the first-ever official collection of essential Japanese folk and rock songs from the peak years of the angura movement to reach Western audiences, and we are loving it.

in ‘60s japan, Student protests and a rising youth culture gave way to the angura (short for “underground) movement that thrived on subverting traditions of the post-war years. Some of the most influential figures in Japanese pop emerged from this vital period, yet very little of their work has ever been released or heard outside of Japan, until now. the comp includes the bluesy avant-garde stylings of Maki Asakawa, future Sadistic Mika Band founder Kazuhiko Kato with his fuzzy, progressive psychedelia, the beatnik acid folk of Masato Minami, and the intimate living room folk of Kenji Endo. Nearly 50 years on, this “New Music” is born anew.
