I know it's already March but here are my favorites of 2K11. I was hoping you hadn't already heard too many of these but then maybe it'd be cool if you had and everyone was super into all this stuff. My nature was already predisposed towards wierdo pop of a Japanese origin, and attempting to learn the language certainly hasn't helped me diversify... Anyway, I hope you will enjoy this stuff!!

POLYSICS // Oh No! It's Heavy Polysick!!!
March saw the release of Japanese Devo-obsessos POLYSIC's eleventh studio album, Oh No! It's Heavy Polysick!!! Though lead singer/guitarist Hayashi promised a long break following the release of 2009's Absolute Polysics and the departure of longtime keyboardist, Kayo, the group barely waited a year before releasing their first full length as a trio. While the wait was incredibly short, the quality of this album cannot be denied. Far more guitar heavy than previous efforts, the band seems quite comfortable without a dedicated synth player and still retain their signature guitar synth pogo punk new wave sound. Plowing through 13 songs in under 40 minutes, POLYSICS continue to astound and amaze--It's finally out for download now, so click the link and buy or die!
URBANGARDE / MENTAL HELLS
『アーバンギャルド ／ メンタルヘルズ』
Neon Indian / Era Extraña
Macdonald Duck Eclair / Kono Tokimeki Imasugu
here, and enjoy an album that is sure to impress with it's use of extremes both overly heady and amateurish. If only all pop music were always as big wonderfully messy as this.
GalapagosS / Black Including All
Okay, I think that's enough for now. I hope you will buy all these right away and support these incredible artists!!! Let's hope they all come to New York and play live too!
