ROVO – Imago

In i reccomend, lauren's, music on June 10, 2010 at 2:56 pm

ROVO were formed in japan by former boredoms guitar seiichi yamamoto, back in 1996. they use a hands-on method of creating a kind of music which is usually produced entirely electronic. this album is filled with beautiful experimental/psychedelic tunes and i consider it truly amazing. one of the drummers/percussionists is also from another legendary japanese band: “ground zero”, adding another reason as to why i like ROVO so much.

Shiina Ringo – 三文ゴシップ

In i reccomend, lauren's, music on June 8, 2010 at 11:36 pm

三文ゴシップ / superficial gossip would have to be my favorite shiina release. being her latest album (release: 2009), i have to say the queen has outdone herself with this one. you may recognize her talented voice from the band ‘tokyo jihen’. i hear lots of jazzy, pop, experimental tones in this album and i can’t stop putting ‘marunouchi sadistic (EXPO VER.)’ on repeat, it’s that good. whether you’re a japanese music fan or not, i reccomend you listen to shiina ringo! she’s the best!
