 The Night Is Yours is re-released (2014.07.02)

2011年にSloowTapes(ベルギー)よりアナログオンリーでリリースされた”The Night Is Yours”が、Essence Music(ブラジルよりCD及びCD BOX SET(未発表音源収録のCDR付)の2セットで再リリース。

Songs; Blow Away/Shes So Heavy/After My Dream/So Alone/The Night Is Yours

Standard Edition
ESS020

Finally out this mighty masterpiece of dark and wild psychedelia from the Japanese three-piece legends! Fuzz
and reverb drenched jamming sounds from the basements of Hamamatsu evoking the always welcomed ghosts
of Amon Düül and Les Rallizes Denudes.

Originally released as an instantly sold-out LP edition on Sloow Tapes in 2011, we decided to do justice and make The Night Is Yours available again, this time as a CD edition limited to 200 copies. Housed in our high quality tip-on mini-LP gatefold packaging (plus insert) featuring new sonic treatment by the mastermind Aoki Tomoyuki and expanded trippy artwork by Bart De Paepe!


Box Set Edition
ESS020-B

We also present The Night Is Yours as a beautifully handcrafted and entirely hand assembled sturdy boxset built as a tip-on
silkscreened and hand painted cloth over sturdy boards art piece.

Besides the standard edition, you will also find a third eye hand drawn canvas made with collage techniques to decorate your wall, all-seeing eyes and an unheard and exclusive bonus album on CDR called Sweet Sister Session (Uncut) For Lucrezia, which features the whole wonderful Sweet Sister set recorded back in 2004 during the Lucrezia album sessions (Alchemy Records), which remained shelved during all these years. 46 minutes of pure basement psychedelic frenzy housed in a custom silkscreened packaging. First 80 copies on black/black discs.

Strictly limited to 91 hand-numbered copies

New Split 12 Vinyl Come out! (2013 8/25)

Domestic Violence Recordings(ドイツ)より、Mama Baer(Soundpoetry,Avantgarde)との12inchスプリットがリリース。限定199

New Split 12inch with Mama Baer was released from Domestic Violence Recordings(Germany). Lim.199

UP-TIGHT/MAMA BAER  SPLIT LP  DVR-HGA9/Domestic Violence Recordinds

A split LP that brings together the Germany-based avant-garde sound/performance artist Mama Baer and the Tokyo-based psych outfit Up Tight, with Aoki Tomoyuki on guitar, Ogaata Takashi on bass, and Shirahata Takashi on drums and piano. The Up Tight side opens up by gently pulling you in but that's a false sense of insecurity, or the lull before the storm, because the tension quickly picks-up with bursts of adrenalin-soaked psych assaults that reverberate in clouds of fuzz. Recorded at ABU Studio in Hamamatsu, Japan, in April 2012, the Up Tight set also includes some fine moves on piano and bass that feels like we're in the midst of a free-jazz-set but those chops give way to the oncoming juggernaut of a full-on psych ritual with Tomoyuki's guitar and Takashi's drumming spilling over the edges in ways that'll flood your mind, body, and soul. The Mama Baer side, Seelennebel-brut I-II, is a much more minimalist affair throughout but it's every bit as captivating, with the artist using flute, microphones, voice, and tapes in ways that remind me of Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides or even Philip Corner. The sheer quality of both sides and the contrasting forms/styles make this a very fine record indeed. Privately released on Mama Baer and Kommissar Hjuler’s own label under catalogue number DVR-HGA9 and in a numbered edition of 177 copies, with paste-on artwork of a deviant nature. (INFINITY LIMITS)

SLOOWTAPES WEBSITE


The Night Is Yours  LP   Sloowax 001
A: Blow Away/Shes So Heavy/After My Dream   

B: So Alone/The Night Is Yours

New studio album by these Japanese heads, this one is sure to place your third eye right onto the eternal cosmic plane. Feels like spacing out in a hammock set between massively fucked-up, stripped-down mantra rhythms licking that sweet essence of crazed fuzz guitars and beautifully mellow acid ballads. A classic nocturnal journey into deep Tokyo psychedelica. Full-color artwork by Bart De Paepe, edition of 300 copies.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpBjRV-Wetc

(SLOOW TAPES)

Tokyo psych monsters Up-Tight come out of the classically wasted/drug-damaged school of excessive fuzz and reverb, giving the nod to the endless jam style of Les Rallizes Denudes while spiking their sound with dark downer ballads that owe as much to The Jacks as they do to The Velvet Underground. The Night Is Yours is an edition of 300 copies LP that functions as the absolute apex of their catalogue to date, crossing beautiful comedown folk-psych moves with whole sides of extended scorch. Indeed, theres a new focus on psychedelic ritual here, especially apparent on the staggering Shes So Heavy with choirs of disembodied monks chanting in the background while the bass played w/all of the thunderous power of Mik from Kousokuya marches the group ever forward and vocalist Tomoyuki hovers over the track like a wraith. If you can picture Spacemen 3 circa The Perfect Prescription produced by Ghost circa Temple Stone then youre close to the outrageous levels of psychedelic excess captured here. Tomoyukis guitar tone has to be heard to be believed, with tactile garage punk crunch put to the service of endlessly euphoric orbits of three droning chords. Up-Tight have been responsible for a buncha the most memorable releases to come out of the post-PSF underground but this has to be their recorded pinnacle, the perfect balance of two chord Velvet downers and strung-out post-Rallizes string violence. One of our records of the year so far! Sloow Tapes are on a roll right now highly recommended!

OUR NEW ALBUM RELEASE
(2009.12.17)

8mm records(Italy)より、ニューアルバム「TheBiginning of the End」がリリース。アナログ盤オンリー。
SOLD OUT

Our New Album The Biginning of the End was released from 8mm records(Italy). Vynal only.
8mm records website

It is a rare feeling when music can give you the sensation like a bullet through the head, and you call it a pleasure. But, well, that is what happened when we first listened to these four tracks from 'The Begininng of the End' the new studio album from Japanese garage-psych heroes Up-Tight. We played the disc once and we were speechless. Why? The reason was easy: We got a picture of a band at its creative zenith. The Lp opens with 'Our Own Portrait', guided by mantric drum beating, rigid bass pulsations and T.Aoki providing a vortex of massive fuzzed guitar. 'A Song For Your Pain' is a beautifully inspired ballad, with a melancholic voice floating on a carpet of melodic soft psychedelia. Side B is the Beginning Of The End, for real! 'The Destruction' is a trippy improvisation, with amps on fire and instruments in a state of pure sonic catharsis. Introducing the title-track as the final chapter, with Aoki's raucous crooning that evokes smoke and dark shadows, then collapsing into a wall of guitar squall. Our ears are still blowing! And it's time to play this record again. Get ready for a long trip cause there is no turning back with this incredible new album, Up-Tight takes the tradition of Japanese psych-rock and brings it to a brand new level of crazy intensity and destructive power. 

Available on vinyl only. First press of 210 hand-numbered copies. Red vinyl, silkscreened artwork, with insert.

"52-minute DVD (all region, all format) of Up-Tight playing at their best. Incredible sound quality, the video is close-up and personal. Unless you have been lucky enough to catch this tremendous live band on tour, this is the only way you are going to experience the real thing! Black-clad and with an ominous aura created by their distorted guitar epics, burnt-out ballads and raucous mantric jams, Up-Tight are seriously not to be messed with. Heading up the second generation of Japanese psychedelic rock acts (following on from Fushitsusha, Kosokuya and Shizuka) theyre one of the best live groups in Japan. As you might expect from their name, theres a chiselled intensity to their playing which displays some startling post-Velvets stances. With the power to lay down spontaneously loose, acid-fried and drugged garage psych jams of hypnotic guitar squall, and a line of impassioned and fathomless vocals that are capable of kicking you right in the gut, Up-Tight have a mesmeric feel to them, unmatched by any peers." 2-sided DVD that is both NTSC & PAL compatible."-Last Visible Dog(US)

"Up-Tight are one of the most mind-blowing live groups to come out of the contemporary Japanese underground, extending their blasted post-Rallizes guitar scorchers and Velvets-styled ballads well into the bliss zone with endless guitar soloing, languid blues busting and feedback/amplifier jams. This multi-camera, professionally filmed live show is an absolute beauty, with a heavy light show and some inspired post-production giving the performance a classic Exploding Plastic Inevitable feel and some up-close filming that cuts straight to the heart of the action. Aoki Tomoyuki is an amazing frontman, with a cigarette slung from his lip and wraparound raybans while he tears incredible, post-Miuztani bombs of wail from his six strings. The track choice is primo too, with long versions of "Day Dream Believer", "Cool Eyes", "Never Come Morning"? and "Sweet Sister". There's a title menu that allows you to jump to specific tracks and the disc is region 0 and both PAL and NTSC compatible. Recommended.".- Volcanic Tongue(UK)
