Six months in the making, Nasty Wizard Recordings is proud to present our first Asian post-rock compilation tape, celebrating a genre that spans the Pacific region and encompasses some of the most epic sounds coming out of this part of the world in recent years. Assembled in celebration of this year’s International Cassette Store Day (Oct 13), the compilation connects the dots between bands and artists in China, South Korea, Japan, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, The Philippines, and includes established names such as the mighty Wangwen and Miss Woman (CHN), but also newer names like BLAD (KOR) and The Grey Field (Indonesia).
The full line up includes: Wangwen, Miss Woman, and Acid Accident (China), BLAD (South Korea), MOMA (Japan), The Reasonable Hope (India), Mashrabiya (Malaysia), The Grey Field (Indonesia), and Odd (The Philippines), an awesome package for seasoned connoisseurs of Asian post-rock but perfect also for the uninitiated who want to metaphorically dip their toe in.
The artwork for the compilation is the work of James Sserwadda, a Ugandan artist living and working in Beijing. The multilayered quality to James’ work is what makes it the perfect companion to the sounds found on this compilation.
The release is available on a limited run of 200 cassette tapes and is streaming right now on the Nasty Wizard Recordings Bandcamp page:
