The first Melt-Banana album after six years – furthermore the first album as duo with synthetic Bass- and Drumtracks – could have been anticipated with mixed feelings. And singer Yasuko and genius Guitarist Agata? Release ‚Fetch‚ one of their best albums so far, a Melt-Banana fireworks extravaganza, with the only downside being that the next album may again be away half a decade. On day 17 of the HeavyPop Advent calender the Japanese cult outfit tells us about their favourite records of 2013 – and beyond.
We spent most of the time in 2013 for Fetch. So it is #1 of course! We listened to it thousands times during the recording, so whether we liked it or not, we picked this one anyway.
2. Low Fat – ‚Too Big Target‚
2. Dessin the World – ‚A plan named overlap #2‚
This year we visited Thailand for the first time and met many people and bands. It was another big thing for us this year.
We are not sure if we can put this because it’s not out yet. We got a copy of finished work somehow and it sounded great. So we put this here and you can check this out soon or probably next year.
Thanks to Yako and Agata / MxBx for joining the Heavypop advent calender 2013!
