Favorite New Music: Boris

Attention Please
Sargent House

Constantly-experimenting Japanese rock band Boris has been ridiculously prolific these days. Not only did they just contribute to the soundtrack of hit Japanese film Confessions and release another collaboration album with Merzbow, but they’ve also managed to put out three new albums of their own in the last two months.

While the other two – the rock-heavy Heavy Rocks and the Japan-only New Album – have their own merits, Attention Please is the most notable and intriguing of the trio as the band takes steps towards shoegaze, with longtime member Wata taking over vocals for the first time.

“Tokyo Wonder Land”
