Announcing: Kishi Bashi, Omoiyari

The new album Omoiyari reflects the turbulent socio-political atmosphere of present day America, as viewed through the lens of Japanese-American internment camps in 1940s America. To find inspiration for the album, K visited former prison sites, listened to the stories of survivors, and explored the emotional lives of the innocent Japanese-Americans who were unjustly incarcerated in WWII America.

Stepping away from his past loop-based production model, this is a less overtly-complex version of Kishi Bashi. The focus of Omoiyari is centered squarely on its songs. And these songs are amazing.

It doesn’t matter who you are, what you want, or what you’re willing to do to get it. If you just let the Biz do the driving for the next 45 minutes or so, you could win an all-inclusive vacation from this spacetime ghetto we’ve been forced to subjectively experience. Enter as often as you like, peel off that smelly old human costume and relax, bud! You’re a gorgeous beast."

Son Lux, Remnants & Reissues

Son Lux and JNR go way back. We first began working with the band in 2013 with the release of their seminal album Lanterns. Even though we are no longer their exclusive label, we still love collaborating with Ryan Lott and co. whenever we get the chance. We couldn't be more excited to release this incredible 3xLP box set.

Reissues & Remnants features limited edition pressings of the first two full-length Son Lux records At War With Walls & Mazes (2008) and We Are Rising (2011)--both of which were originally released on Anticon, and are long out of print. The set also includes the brand new LP Remnants, a compelling collection of rare and previously unreleased recordings spanning from 2008 to 2017. All this, housed in a matte-laminated box set with spot-gloss, limited to 500 hand-numbered copies.

Coughy - Ocean Hug

Coughy began as a late night recording experiment at a performing arts summer camp, formed by two musical associates — Julian (of Ava Luna) and Andy (Laser Background, Speedy Ortiz). They created these songs by challenging each other to write "tiny songs", packing as many logical twists and turns into the confines of 60 seconds as possible. This approach made for some carefree, honest and meaningful music, straight from the playful heart of creation.

Ocean Hug is available on white vinyl, limited to 532 hand-numbered copies, and black cassette limited to 10,000... check that out, right this way!

OUT NOW: Good Fuck

Releasing our second "fuck band" here at JNR... Good Fuck is the new project from Tim Kinsella and his partner Jenny Pulse.

Kinsella and Pulse journeyed deep into isolation with this project. Kinsella’s extensive history in genre-pushing rock and roll (Joan of Arc, Owls, Cap’n Jazz) is strikingly complimented by Pulse’s fresh ear for minimalist electro sounds. Kinsella and Pulse achieved complete artistic symbiosis in composing Good Fuck’s music.

VIP Edition is limited to just 250 hand-numbered copies, pressed on "Love Colored" vinyl (red inside milky clear) and includes a bonus remix cassette. Also available on highlighter yellow vinyl, CD & Digital.
