In honor of the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s death, RiLF uploaded their unreleased cover of “Love.” If Lennon’s “Love” is the song you hold your sweetheart to on a cold winter’s eve, than RiLF’s “Love” is the apocalyptic backdrop to blowing your lover’s brains out after a zombie infestation. A perfect addition to RiLF’s catalog.

Let’s get dangerous.
world’s end girlfriend- Seven Idiots
What’s more exciting than a new world’s end girlfriend album? A new post-rock label founded by none other than WEG himself! But a new WEG album is awesome as well. And this will be Virgin Babylon’s first release. “Les Enfants du Paradis” was a little more upbeat/chipper than we’ve come to expect from WEG. But I’m interested to hear what this “irregular pop album” is all about. (myspace)
OGRE YOU ASSHOLE – Ukareteiru Hito
What’s more exciting than a new Ogre You Asshole mini-album? An Ogre You Asshole North American Tour! That’s right, OYA will be opening for Wolf Parade this November in the States (and Canada). Hopefully an American label will release some of their material in the States. Or at least pick up a few CDs at their show? (myspace)
Just when you thought Peelander-Z couldn’t get any crazier, they decided to release a children’s album. No joke. Chicken Ranch Records will release the album stateside with a bonus DVD of music videos and extras. They’ll be touring America (and Canada) a lot this fall so check them out! Human bowling! Limbo! (myspace)
Envy’s fifth album is upon us. Said to be their most epic yet. Hopefully that doesn’t mean long, droning songs like on Insomniac Doze. The two songs that were released remind me of old-school Envy, though. If you can wait, Temporary Residence will release the album stateside in October on CD and vinyl. They’ll also be touring America with a bunch of skramz bands this September-October! (myspace)
Ling Tosite Sigure- still a Sigure virgin?
Ling blew us away with just A moment last year, but apparently we’ve heard NOTHING yet for we are still Sigure virgins. Get ready for another nine tracks of virgin goodness. (myspace) ————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
avengers in sci-fi- Delight Slight Lightspeed: Just one b-side for this single, but it comes with a DVD loaded with live videos. (myspace)
HALCALI- Roman Hiko: HALCALI remakes the classic 90s song from Kome Kome Club. Features ska favorite Your Song Is Good as guest musicians. (myspace)
Rega- Lyrics: The title makes no sense they play post-rock. (myspace)
RiLF- Ferris Wheel: Featuring members of Anoice and matryoshka. (myspace)
sleepy.ac- LIVE @ Sapporo Kitara: Live sleepy.ab album? I’m confused. (myspace)
Start Of The Day- Love: New album. New band members. And no more of this StartOfTheDay crap. (myspace)
VOLA & THE ORIENTAL MACHINE – PRINCIPLE: A new Vola album? Yesssssssssss. (myspace)
Wagdug Futuristic Unity- R.A.M.: AA= released their new album earlier this year. Time for this other Mad Capsule Markets spinoff that sounds exactly the same to release theirs.
I was made to hit in America
We’ll be getting the new Peelander-Z and Envy albums in the US very soon, but there’s also a couple of older releases coming out.
Boom Boom Satellites- Over and Over
Boom Boom Satellites will be coming to America this fall and Sony decided to release a compilation album to celebrate. Over and Over features 17 tracks from Exposed, ON, Umbra, Photon, Full of Elevating Pleasures, and Out Loud. The only problem? This is a CD-R release. That’s right, Sony loves this band so much that the only physical release they plan on giving it is a burn-on-demand product from Amazon.com. Disappointed.
Boredoms- 77 Boa Drum
Thrill Jockey will release this monumental DVD release from Boredoms. 77 Boa Drum documents a concert held at the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park in Brooklyn, NY on July 7th, 2007 at 7:07pm. 77 drummers were asked to play as one in this live event.
myspace band of the week
Calu, the vocalist/creepy looking girl from matryoshka, four members of Anoice, and a couple other people got together earlier this year and dubbed themselves Ricco Label and Friends. They released era e.p. in April and renamed themselves RiLF later on. In September, they’ll release their debut album Ferris Wheel on Ricco Label. One-minute samples of the entire album can be heard on myspace. RiLF combines the post-rock stylings of Anoice with Calu’s haunting vocals. Some of the songs are more experimental than others, but all come out out as very relaxing, easy to fall asleep to music. The violins also add a touch of class to songs like “Mint Tea” and “so sad.”
This is definitely a side project to look out for. And if you’re still wondering about that matryoshka album, it was announced yesterday that it will be released on world’s end girlfriend’s new label Virgin Babylon Records.
