Bassist Nakao Kentaro performed with Spiral Chord in 2004 before heading back to his original solo project, SLOTH LOVE CHUNKS. Tower’s in-house label, NMNL, releases the band’s debut single, “Loveless Ideals“, on Dec. 14.
Tower also lists Jan. 25 as the release date for a still-untitled release. Juding by the price, it looks like a mini-album.
Tabuchi Hisako’s solo project, toddle, released its debut album, I dedicate D chord, back in September. Reports from the Keikaku.net message boards indicate toddle isn’t terribly great live, and the album reflects it. Tabuchi’s vocals are overreaching in a charming way, and her brutal guitar playing overshadows the rest of the band. It’s actually a pretty good album, but I can hear how it may not work live.
