Shawnté Salabert from Hacktone Records saw my post about the LOVE PSYCHEDELICO compilation being released by the label, titled This is LOVE PSYCHEDELICO. She gave me a few more details about the release.
First, KUMI and Sato Naoki remastered the tracks with Joe Gastwirt, who has worked with Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac and the Beach Boys — appropriate credentials given the band’s classic rock sound. The deluxe packaging includes full lyrics of all the songs with handwritten transliterations by Naoki, plus a LOVE PSYCHEDELICO window sticker.
Salabert also mentions the duo will be in the US during the spring or summer to promote the album. A tour, perhaps? I’m hoping for a return visit to Austin.
This is LOVE PSYCHEDELICO hits digital download sites on Apr. 29, with a retail release on May 6.
