First & Last: Japanese Private Press, Vol. 13

Embrace the dawn of a new year with the thirteenth 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.”

Notably, two artists in this mix are newly available on vinyl; Abeichizoku(阿部一族), recently reissued by First & Last Records, and Niningashi(ににんがし), featured on an upcoming Time Capsule compilation. | t craft
