Vinyl Vault Entry #13: The Genesis of Shibuya-Kei with Doctor Head’s World Tower
With the release of the 1991 album Doctor Head's World Tower, alternative rock group Flipper's Guitar introduced a wholly original sound to the burgeoning music scene in Japan, and even created a new genre dubbed "Shibuya-Kei". For this entry in the Vinyl Vault, we spoke with our friend and zine artist Randy Asakura about the history, influence and legacy of this seminal, yet underappreciated, album.
Vinyl Vault Entry #12: Introduction to Hocus Bogus Records with Lathe Cutter Bailey Moses
For Bailey Moses, records are more than just a medium to listen to music, but a means for endless creative expression. With her lathe cut project, Hocus Bogus, she has made upcycled records out of VHS tapes, flowers, food, and just about anything you could imagine. We had a quick chat with Bailey on how she got started in the lathe community, and how she continually tests the limits of what a record can be.
