Everything Japan this week! Tim, Lochlan and Steph share their eclectic Japanese music selection.

Bonus artists mentionned during the show are Boredoms with their powerfull own musical recipe which uncludes Japanoise, tribal drumming, screaming and synths; and Pa’s Lam System with their (tastewise controversial!) track I’m Coming in particular.

We only noticed after the show that we talked about three different artists from the same Internet label, Maltine Records. For more interesting music, a lot of it Japanese, head to their website and enjoy the many free releases (two of which we linked in the playlist).
