4TE’s release debut double A-side, MOVE/Ippo Zutsu review

4TE’s release debut double A-side, MOVE/Ippo Zutsu review
One of the most striking things about indie quartet, 4TE is the geographical distance between each member – Mei, Jenny, Chii and Micchi – and the cohesion evident in their first double A-side release, MORE and Ippo Zutsu.* Taking inspiration from Perfume and Kumi Koda, MORE—the first of the two tracks—certainly bears a notable Yasutaka Nakata influence, primarily in the bridge and chorus. There is also something of Berryz Koubou‘s...

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu live at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, 29th April 2014
Outside of the grandeur of the Shepherd’s Bush Empire, a small child no older than 10 poses expertly for cameras with a smile, dressed in an outfit identical to that worn by pop star Kyary Pamyu Pamyu in the video to her single, PONPONPON. As the crowd passes through the doors of the venue, it is noticeable that the more generically colourful outfits of last year have given way to more streamlined variants of Kyary inspired costumes. For the...

The Global Music Market and the Japanese Approach to Digital Media
Leafing through records in Camden Town or Shoreditch may not be quite the thing of the past we were led to believe it was a decade or so ago, yet despite the recent cultural resurgence of the LP, a BBC news report suggests that a decline in Japanese domestic market sales is harming the music industry on a global scale.

Perfume at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, 5th July 2013
“FISH!” The upper levels of the old Shepherd’s Bush Empire, bedecked in gold and white, a reminder of the venue’s original purpose as a variety theatre, erupt in excitement, the word echoing with a roar back towards the small stage. There is the swooping gesture of an arm to indicate the ground level. “AND CHIPS!” Likewise, the crowded lower level of the venue cries out in response. Hands are raised in the air, people jump up and...
