New Release: Kinoko Teikoku's 2nd EP "Yoru ga Aketara"

Matthew Bedford

On January 21st, one of Japan's most promising up-and-coming bands Kinoko Teikoku formally released their second EP "Yoru ga Aketara."  Formed in 2007, Kinoko Teikoku got their start in Shibuya playing at local live houses and soon established themselves in Japan's indie scene. The band's sound can best be described as beautifully intense.  Satou's dreamy vocals carry the listener as the music, driven by a-chan's guitars, flows from beautiful and melodic to thick and powerful.  Their songs are beautifully composed and sophisticated and above all else extremely catchy.  Kinoko Teikoku provides well-crafted and passionate music.  A definite must-listen and a prime example of a hidden gem in the Japanese music world.

Maintaining their status as a true local indie act, Kinoko Teikoku had previously only sold their music at live shows.  Until now.  The self-produced 5-track CD "Yoru ga Aketara" is now available online through diskunion (http://diskunion.net/portal/ct/detail/IND8920#.Txo16e-s43I.twitter) for a very reasonable ¥1,050 (about $13.53 USD and well worth it) which will get you 30 minutes of some excellent music.
