Looking ahead, May-June 2021

[Duran Duran - Future Past]

AJICO, Setsuzoku, May 25

Everyone’s back! UA, Asai Kenichi, TOKIE and Shiino Kyoichi! I’m hoping there’s a full album in the future.

Tokyo Jihen, Ongaku (Music), June 9

I’ve missed Tokyo Jihen, but the singles that have been released since the reunion haven’t really caught me.

Sleater-Kinney, Path of Wellness, June 11

It feels as if everyone who’s announcing new albums wouldn’t have been working on them had it not been for the pandemic.

Duran Duran, Future Past, Oct. 22

Giorgio Moroder did wonders on Kylie Minogue’s DISCO, and the single “Invisible” is the hardest Duran Duran has rocked since perhaps “The Wild Boys”.

Vinyl

My Bloody Valentine, Isn’t Anything, May 21
My Bloody Valentine, Loveless, May 21
My Bloody Valentine, mbv, May 21

I have an unofficial pressing of Isn’t Anything, so I made sure to order a legitimate one directly from the band themselves. I can’t say I feel much need for mbv on vinyl.

Utada Hikaru, One Last Kiss (US release), Aug. 20

I already have the Japanese pressing of this EP. Will I be getting this domestic pressing? Probably yes.

Guided By Voices, Isolation Drills, Sept. 17

Isolation Drills was reissued for Record Store Day as a single disc. This new pressing spreads the album out over two discs, which is far more prudent for its length.
