New (and old) music from Japan – Autumn 2022 edition

Notable new Japanese releases and reissues

My Twitter feed recently has been full of grim stories about the challenges facing touring artists at the moment, so it’s as good a time as any to splurge on music (you know, like they did in the 1990s). Here are some of the releases that have caught my attention over the past month or two, with the usual apologies to everyone I’ve left out.

New (and old) music from Japan – Late Summer 2022 edition

Notable new Japanese releases and reissues

In a recent review on The Quietus, Danijela Bočev recounted how she had recently developed a fear of boring music: the kind of grayscale, monotonous stuff that provided a weird kind of comfort food during the early days of the pandemic. I could relate, and not just because of the way she linked her argument in with her experience of grieving for departed family members. Sifting through PR emails and the recesses of Bandcamp, I find myself glazing over at the mere mention of ambient drone, field recordings, ASMR and minimal anything. That’s partly a reflection of quite how much music in this vein has been released over the last couple of years, the vast majority of it utterly disposable. But there’s also something in the air right now: with the live scene back in full swing (more or less), music is going back to being a communal activity. And, speaking for myself, I just wanna get loaded.

I could (and probably should) fill a whole column just with the music that’s being released during September, but in the meantime, here are some things you might have missed over the past few months.
