Well hello there – long time no SWIT (for me) Anything mad happened since I last posted in 2019?? IT’S ALL A BIT NUTS ISN’T IT?
Anyway this amazing compilation of Japanese Indie Music from Morr Music in collaboration with the peerless Markus Acher’s Alien Transistor label is a perfect antidote to all the crap going on at the moment. He tells us…….
“In 2018 I was sitting in the Tenniscoats’ kitchen with beer and music, looking at Ueno’s wonderful risograph songbook ‘Minna Miteru’ (Everybody Watch) which collects the lyrics and chords of their friends’ songs alongside his own illustrations, when Saya suggested putting together a compilation of these and other songs for our label. I couldn’t have been happier, this sounded like a dream to me.”
It’s a dream to listen to as-well I can tell you

Party On A Floating Cake
嶺川貴子＆ダスティン·ウォング / Takako Minekawa ＆ Dustin Wong
