Yip/Jump Music and Exit

Two completely random albums for you all today. The first is made by an "outsider" musician without any musical training; the second is made by an accomplished Japanese experimental artist who sounds like he's had all the training in the world.

Both are completely and unflinchingly unique, the likes of which you probably won't hear elsewhere.

심장에 남는 사람 by 정설향

Information: Humming Urban Stereo is a Korean electropop band, sometimes incorporating elements of acid jazz and R&B. This album has quite the variety. Hope you enjoy! :)
Yes, I'm taking a break from my physics work to bring you not one, but two albums! :D

Artist: Pizzicato Five, ピチカート・ファイヴ

Album: Çà et Là du Japon

Languages:  English, Japanese

 pop, electronic, rock, shibuya-kei


  1. Janvier
  2. Nonstop to Tokyo
  3. Kimigayo
  4. Sakura Sakura
  5. Moderns
  6. Kimono
  7. Fashion People
  8. America dewa

  13. A Tokyo

  16. AIUEO
Information: Pizzicato Five or P5 are an eclectic group with fun beats. This is definitely their favourite album of mine (I think I have their full discography, if that says anything). Each song is different from the other. It's hard to describe P5 here as styles of distinct persons coming together, because they worked with many different collaborators in this album .... it's just a style of sound. Recommendations include Sakura Sakura, Kimono, and Fashion People. Tracks 12 and 16 are fun and whimsical as well. This whole group is quite whimsical, really.

Artist: Blonde Redhead

Album: Misery is a Butterfly

Languages:  English

ambient, shoegaze, indie, experimental, rock


  1. Elephant Woman

Information: I found out about Blonde Redhead through one of Ellen Page's earlier movies, Hard Candy (a good movie, by the way), and I was hooked. Blonde Redhead is an American band who currently consist of the dreamy-voiced Kazu Makino and Italian-American brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace. Lyrics are usually in English, but are sometimes in Japanese, French, or Italian. They have a really ethereal sound, but with a rawness to it.
Artist: Finders Keepers Records (Various Artists)
Album: Well-Hung
Languages: Hungarian, Assorted European

01. Anna Adamis & Gabor Presser - Ringasd el magad No.2
02. Omega Redstar - Egy lany nem ment haza
03. Metro - A penz

09. Meteor & Demjen Ferenc - Kivanj te is nekem szep, jo ejszakat
10. Illes - A bolond lany
11. Omega - Kergeskezu favagok
12. Sarolta Zalatnay - Hadd mondjam el
13. Locomotiv GT - Megvarlak ma delben
14. Nemenyi Bela & Atlantis - Kinai fal
15. Katie Kovacs & Gemini - Nem biztos semmi
16. Piramis - Mondj egy meset

18. Omega - Felbeszakadt koncert
19. Illes - Nekem oly mindegy
20. Bergendy - Hetkoznapi Balladak

Information: What can I say about this album? It's amazing. It's bizarre in the best possible way. It's catchy, funky AND manages to rock out without ever sounding like any pop music you've heard before. At the very least, you can shove this under the nose of someone who criticizes every aspect of Communism and shout, "THIS is what oppression can do to a tired art form! Beat that!"
