First & Last: Japanese Private Press, Vol. 9

Welcome to the ninth installment of First & Last, a series of mixes providing a glimpse into the world of Japanese private press, or 自主盤, pronounced “jishuban”, which loosely translates to “independent board.” Per this edition, of particular note is track two, which is featured on the recently reissued Untitled White Album by Hiroshi Tanaka & Yoichi Fuwa, the debut release from the series creators — the recently christened First & Last Records.
