Singer-songwriter Kojima Mayumi released an instrumental version of her 2014 album On the Road. Without Kojima’s distinctly modern vocal hooks, the music sounds all the more surf-rock, complete with ’60s-esque rumbling rhythm and Fender guitar.

VAMPS – BLOODSUCKERS (International Version)

Longtime collaborators Hyde and K.A.Z. rereleased their band‘s fourth album in an international version. Three of the tracks from the original (“Ahead” – now titled “World’s End” – “Vampire’s Love” and “Get Away”) have been rerecorded in English. The prolific rockers will be supporting SIXX:AM on tour in the US all through April.

Polysics – HEN AI LET’S GO!

If Polysic‘s 7-track mini-album proves to be as enthusiastically bizarre as any of their previous releases, fans of their precise musicality and unapologetic weirdness will no doubt be satisfied. The crunchy guitar of “Last Potato Memories” is punctuated by high-pitched “Hoo!”s, while “Dr. Pepper!!!!!”‘s relentless drumming feels decidedly punk layered beneath a singsong chorus reminiscent of the Powerpuff Girls end theme.
