They are endlessly developing by one heavy and psychedelic riff like loosing our mind. It is as if Sleep's "Jerusalem" meets Japanese psychedelic rock. Mike vest is an incredible guy because he has been successively making such amazing tunes.

In the golden age of grunge when dark songs were valued, this album developed light and flesh guitar rock to the contrary. Melody sense like magic by Bob mould is full of all parts, and that makes this work extraordinary. The masterpiece sounds real rather than "Nevermind" which was most popular in that age.

Drone by a female composer from Sweden who also had a relationship with La Monte Young. Body and mind are being wrapped by the soft sound utilized female vocal. I recommend people who like around Eliane Radigue.

The track by a composer in Berlin who is influenced from Giacinto Scelsi to The Doors is dark industial/onkyo as if he draw the dark side of the human mind. I'm dragged into the texture elaborated into details.

In 1980's, Bad Brains made a crossover sound they combined punk with reggae. This band succeeded in making a crossover they combined thrash metal with psychedelic rock or dub. I recommend to around Deafheaven fans.

Because he may be recognized as the guitarist of hard rock, this weird album of avant-garde has been ignored by avant-garde listener. From the beginning of album "Little green man" which is hard rock full of acid taste to the last "Chronic Insomnia" which is colored by dissonance, the brilliance of Vai is brimful.

Mixtape by a beatmaker in London which is made of sound sources by himself. Although he is developing experimental beats including industrial/noise, I'm surprised three-dimensional sound which give me feeling of being at the place. I also recommend Boredoms fans.

The gig in 1991 at Shibuya Lamama. The camera has been capturing Keiji Haino who showers unbelievable loud sound, shaking his hair loose. I' d like to recommend people who come to be interested not only in Fushitusuha, but also Japanese psychedelic rock.

Although this is techno including the elements of industiral/onkyo, I feel the track decent. It may be due to mastering by Stefan Betke a.k.a. Pole. I recommend Mika Vainio fans.

The sound source in 1965 by the legendary percussionist who had been the first Velvet's drummer was dug. Besides, the content is abstract and percussive electronic music which Low Jack are likely to use. It's the thing enthusiasts may fall unconscious.

The song “I am nothing” recorded in the new album of Electric Wizard “Time to die” which would be released in September was uploaded the other day. Unearthly heavy, distorted and purgatory guitar covers the whole sound, and Jus sings like murmuring “I am nothing” behind that guitar. It has been 10 years since a female guitarist Liz joined the group, and they broke down with Rise Above which was the old label they were in since the first album, then they established their own label Witchfinder Records. In such milestone year, they seem to enter a new dimension. The frontman, Jus Oborn talked in one interview that the new album would be heavier and more evil than “Dopethrone". As long as I listen to this "I am nothing", and the sound has been completely finished as he said.

Brand new cut from the hoped for new album "Time to die". I'm beaten completely by wicked doom metal with the distorted guitar which reminds us "Dopethrone" era. I think they alone can play such heavy riffs on the earth.

The compilation of the label, Rockers established by the guy who introduced the melodica recognized as children's instruments into dub/reggae. I end up chilling out by the melancholic melody and the soft analog sound.

The session comprised one song for 43 minutes in 2005. We can listen to the different side of usual Dälek. The sound like dark ambient including the elements of Indian music or drone is what I'd like to Bong fans listen to.

Although some artists are highly valued in Europe, they’re not reported in Japan. Mike Vest who I interview this time is one of them. He is vigorously playing in a number of projects, including psychedelic drone group Bong, 11 paranoias, Haikai no ku, Basillica, Blown Out, Nun, etc., but how many Japanese know his activity? Mike broke off his busy schedule to respond to my interview through Facebook. I’m proud to promptly interview him and report his activity in Japan.
―Your current projects I know are Bong, Haika no ku, Blown out, Nun, 11 Paranoias, Lobster Priest, Basillica. Actually, how many projects you take part in now? If you've worked other than the above projects, could you tell me the project name and the concept?
Mike: There is one more called Space Victim, Jackal...its all here dude.

From the new album of the Bug who is decided to come to Japan in September. This track features Gonjasufi, and it is solemn dubstep which sacred male and female voice like prayer is given while fat beats are resounding, lying on top of one another.

The psychedelic group by Keizou Miyanishi who are also popular as a painter/cartoonist in the underground scene. The guitar in the minor key and a mellow voice of Miyanishi are flirting with on the slow beat which you can feel modern.

From the ep by a brooklyn label. Psychedelic techno including noise you must lose consciousness is an aggressive killer track which has also the texture of heavy metal. I recommend listeners who like Person of interest which I introduced some days ago.
Until now, I’ve pursued the phenomenon of vinyl revival in the foreign countries, especially in the US and the UK. I had a plan to deal with Japan after I report the situation of the world little more. But, as I reported on the column the other day, the big news which HMV record shop shibuya will open come in. So changing the plan in a hurry, I will write about the circumstance of vinyl and record shop in Japan.

Dark chamber doom by a Greek trio who also has released from PAN. They produce low drone like sounding from a deep stratum, convoluting cello, contrabass and oscillator. I'd like to Haxan Cloak fans experience them.
