Kukangendai Vinyl, CD & tapes by Kukangendai at Norman Records
Sometimes I feel like anything straightforward will become more complicated in Japan. Kukangendai take your regular bass, guitar and drums outfit and churn out relentless polyrhythmic tracks with punk esthetics. No funny business except their counting skills, and the result is Palm, both hypnotizing and rather confusing.

Kukangendai × Ryuichi Sakamoto
Tokyo avant-jazz three-piece Kukangendai join forces with the one and only Ryuichi Sakamoto for a special collaborative release. Zureru presents one track with the artists working in tandem, one Kukangendai original, and a reworking of said Kukangendai original by Sakamoto. The one where Sakamoto takes control is a stoically beautiful drone piece, while Kukangendai’s freaky input comes across like 23 Skidoo reworked by Micachu And The Shapes. Is good.
