[kiirorecords & JAPAN SHOEGAZER FESTIVAL V.A]

Matthew Bedford

Over the last month or so the anticipation of this year's Japan Shoegazer Festival has been building.  This year's edition of the event has reverted back to it's previous two city format, with the first leg taking place in Osaka and the second in Tokyo.  This year's Shoegazer Festival features a whopping thirty artists (twelve in Osaka and eighteen in Tokyo) and a ton of DJs, shaping up to be the biggest events in the fest's history. A couple months ago event organizer and guitarist of annual headliner Lemon's Chair, Masashi Imanishi announced a that a special promotion with net label Kiiro Records would take place at this year's festival.  Around that time Kiiro Records, whose catalog consists largely of free-to-download pop releases, put out its most recent shoegaze compilation titled Forever Shoegaze.  While details were completely unknown at the time, it was assumed that some sort of collaborative release was in the works.  Today the details were announced via Imanishi's blog.

People who attend the event will receive a free copy of the Japan Shoegazer Festival-exclusive compilation, kiirorecords & JAPAN SHOEGAZER FESTIVAL V.A.  The full track list of the limited edition CD-R was released today as well.  Though it does include some songs that have appeared on previous Kiiro Records comps, it marks the first physical release by the label.  It's a pretty nice bonus for folks who are able to attend what has to date been a really enjoyable day of music.  One can asuume that when the Japan Shoegazer Festival concludes, this release will make its way to Bandcamp as well.  The track listing for the CD is as folows:
