Looking at the photo book bundled with the first press CD, we can hear this album as it sounded to the band during recording by using a pair of JVC-Victor HA-MX100 monitoring headphones.
I guess this proves Victor/JVC > Sony.

Ok for some reason the site isnt letting me make a new thread, and I dunno if anyone is around to help with that, but, for those that are interested.


On September 29, Tokyo Jihen are releasing all their full lengths (Education, Adult, Variety, Sports, Discovery, Music) on vinyl for the first time. This isn't some weird singles collection like before, but the full albums, all double LP.


Preorders are up already, I preordered all and it came to about $430 Australian including shipping. Sounds a lot but knowing what Ringo vinyl prices go for eventually, seems like it was a worthy investment.


They seem to be getting new remasters too- this is the part I'm fearful of. Remaster and Ringo never go together, but I will hold out a tiny bit of hope haha.


If Glath is still around, I wonder if he'll be buying the LPs too


Oh yeah, for the psycho fans, Jihen are also releasing their own Crosley turntable. It's a piece of shit (a 99 dollar turntable skinned with Jihen logos, with a price tag of 39,800 yen) but you know, it's there if you REALLY want it.

Had their new song "Primal" on repeat for a while before realizing it's a cover. Maybe it's time to check out the new album even though it's completely unrelated to this track.

I love that now that I have instant access to all of their music, I never get around to listening to any of the new stuff. I didn't even listen to Sandokushi yet!

That's actually probably the best way to go into the albums. People who have stuck around for all the singles between albums tend not to be as satisfied because the albums compile a lot of those and it can feel less like a proper studio album. Music and Sandokushi are both worth checking out though!

FWIW you should also check out Ringo's cover of LET'S GO on the Ordinary Love tribute album, it's great stuff. Makes me wish we had a full jazz covers album from her.
