Minami Deutsch’s debut album is sated with an absolute love toward Krautrock and the
driving Motorik beat. Minami Deutsch was formed by Kyotaro Miula (guitar, vocals,
synthesizer) in Tokyo in 2014. Their sound is influenced by both their love for
Krautrock legends such as Can and Neu!, and the band members being self-professed
"repetition freaks" who heavily listen to minimal techno.

Formed in Taipei, Taiwan in 2010, Prairie WWWW is an experimental folk band combining
poetry, folk, ambient and tribal elements. The musicians get inspiration from the might
of nature, and with a mixture of sounds and visual arts in the performances, they
manage to bring forward the experience of their unique soundscapes visually and aurally
to their audiences.

'Stone Garden' is a window into Kikagaku Moyo's experimental side. 'Stone Garden'
started in a basement studio in Prague with a nearly continuous session over several
days and nights. The original concept was influenced by the raw and seemingly endless
jams of psychedelic pioneers. The freeform songs that emerged from these sessions were
refined over several months at the band's home in Tokyo where each song was sculpted
into an uncommon form. Ed. of 1500 coloured copies, gatefold + poster

Repress! This Tokyo band started channeling the spirits of the Japanese psychedelic
underground in the Summer of 2012, quickly developing the sound of '60s psychedelia
to a breathtaking degree. The band's s/t debut exerts an elemental power. Enlivening
its sound with sitars, percussive drums, theremins, wind instruments and ethereal
vocals, the band manages to sound powerfully spacious and lazily serene all at once.

This is the forth full length record by Japanese psychedelic quartet Sundays & Cybele.
This time rather than re-hash the ethnic and psych tones from before, they've added
in some synth and some drones and have explored darker textures. Therefore in a kind
of parallel manner as their 60's forbearers they have started leaning towards
progressive rock and Pink Floyd style atmospherics.
