I just love record albums. They’re great! I listen to ‘em sometimes, and other times I just hang their artworks up on my wall. And sometimes I even go to internet sites and talk about them with other folks who also like them, although there’s always one or two folks who play “devil’s advocate” and say things like “I don’t much care for that particular record album,” or “why do you have such terrible taste you idiotic ingrate?” which sometimes hurts my feelings because I am very sensitive.
Anyhow, speaking of record albums (which I love) and announcing them to friendly folks (which, by extension I also love) Tokyo-based psychedelic folk singer Asi Aso just announced a new one of her own, to be released by the Editions Mego imprint Ideologic Organ. Entitled Lone, the full-length is out on March 31 of this year. In addition to collaborating with members of the Japanese psych-rock group White Heaven (on 2007’s Chamomile Pool) as well Boris (on the 2007 split 7-inch She’s So Heavy), Aso has had a string of solo releases since her 2000 debut Record, Amaihibiki, Iswy, though Lone will be her first solo full-length in nearly five years (the last one was 2009’s あいだ [Aida]). You see how I went buckwild with discography information there? That’s just a symptom of caring a whole lot about record albums. If you also care, maybe pre-order the album, or give “Date” from the album a listen below.
